Sandra - Australia
My EBM sessions offered me a nurturing space where I could feel safe to open up and connect to what was going on in my body. When I had my first few sessions I got to feel how numb I was in my chest area – it was as if I had deliberately withdrawn from that part of my body. I became more aware of my posture and the fact that I was protecting myself by curling my shoulders forward as an unconscious attempt to hide my breasts so as to not attract sexual attention. I realised that I saw my breasts as appendages that were just there to satisfy desires and feed children.
Before EBMs I could really not appreciate myself, let alone even accept that I was a woman. I was a tomboy and went to many lengths to deny my femininity and caring for everyone else before myself. Gradually, through the support of EBMs, I got in touch with feelings I never knew were there and judgments that I held over myself, and once these cleared I felt the exquisite beauty of my breasts as an integral part of my body.
Through having EBMs I realised that I deserved to be loved, not just by others but firstly by myself. I now know what it means to honour myself as a woman and I appreciate the beauty of women and how much we have to offer society. I feel stronger and more alive and I find it easier to speak up and not give my power away.
