My experience of Esoteric Breast Massage (EBM) has been a profound and very important one. Some years before I discovered the EBM, I found a lump on my breast, which after medical investigation was found to be a fibro adenoma. I felt very grateful for the medical system and what is in place for me to be able to come to this. It was explained to me that this was a benign growth in the breast tissue and there was nothing to worry about. I was to monitor it myself and if anything changed I was to re-investigate
The EBM has been such an important marriage with western medicine treatment for me, because I have not only learned about the lump and it's physical diagnosis, but have also learned how to appreciate my body and take care of it in a way that I haven't been able to before. Just as the negativity and hardness effects my body, so too does the gentleness and appreciation. Through my EBM sessions and my development between sessions, I began to learn and integrate a new way of seeing my body that was different to what I had known.
Through having some regular EBM sessions, my understanding and relationship with my breasts and my body began to change enormously. I was once very uncomfortable and insecure with my breasts being small and often felt anxious about my body and how I looked. The EBM helped me to address this and I was supported by my practitioner to come to more of an understanding and acceptance of my breasts and my body. The difference this has made on my general well-being and my psychological and emotional state is nothing short of amazing. Alongside all of my EBM treatments, I was encouraged to maintain medical checks for anything that was concerning. My practitioner even asked me if I was maintaining regular pap smears. I see the amazing benefits of the western medical model and I really appreciate a practitioner who is also supportive of working with this model to compliment their treatment.
