Breast Care Tips at Home

Breast Awareness

Breast care tips at home.

Are you wearing the right bra size? Apparently you should get your size checked every 6 months?! After all they are lumps of fat, so they will change shape, as do our bellies.

Can you raise a straight arm to your ear, is there any restriction? Now try with your bra strap off and see if that improves it. I’ve seen women not able to lift their shoulder to their ears fully due to their bra strap digging in.

There’s an amazing chest move in Bowen, which relaxes & drains the lymph from your armpits & chest, which is so supportive in taking care of us. We wear underwired bras and put on deodorant, so the lymph glands can’t always do the job the job they are trying to do, which is to drain toxins & fluid. 

"It’s widely held that a tight-fitting bra restricts the lymph nodes around the breast and underarm area, preventing toxins from being processed through them and flushed out of the body. Accumulated toxins anywhere in the body increase the risk for cancer."

Singer and Grismaijer, author of  Dressed to Kill discovered that breast cancer risk dramatically increased in women who wore their bras over 12 hours per day:

  • Women who wore their bras 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer.
  • Women who wore their bras for more than 12 hours but not to bed had a 1 in 7 risk for breast cancer
  • Wearing a bra less than 12 hours per day dropped breast cancer risk to 1 in 152.
  • Overall, women who wore their bras 24 hours per day increased their breast cancer risk by 125 times over women who rarely or never wore a bra.

So, overall, 1. reduce bra wearing time

2. reduce time wearing underwire, or choose non-wired bras (I’m a c cup and there are plenty of support available without underwire)

3. check your boobs monthly, Coopa Feel send you an email or text reminders for you and they have more info on how to check, signs & symptoms, basically get used to what is normal for you & any changes go and see a doc right away.

I can show you how to do a simple chest lymph drainage on yourself, which can be done once a week and takes as quick as 10 seconds. Contact me to book in a bowen session, to support lymphatic flow, promote good muscle movement, to your arms, shoulders and back.

Caring for you, an A to Z guide

Caring for you, an A to Z guide

In case you didnt know, caring for you, is one of my biggest passions, relaxing, squidging, aligning and supporting people to take good care of their health is soooo important. 

A – AROMATHERAPY I love essential oils, their unique aroma & powerful health properties. I create a tailor made blend & place them in an oil to soothe your aches & pains with the benefits of massage or place them in a moisturiser.

B – BOWEN TECHNIQUE an amazing realignment technique to support posture, free up tension, muscular restrictions, support healing injuries & pain reduction. It is very relaxing & can support with stress & wellbeing too.

Bowen technique back care

C – CARING my biggest strength, I love, caring for you & I am totally here to support you with any health & wellbeing needs you have.

D – DETOX Bowen Technique can support to detox & de-stress. Reflexology can ease up uric acid & calcium deposits, which are natural waste products in the forms of crystals which are deposited on the feet.

E – EARS support our respiratory system, hearing & balance. Bowen can ease congestion symptoms & relieve blocked sinuses with amazing lymphatic drainage moves around the ear, jaw, forehead & neck.

Caring for you listening

F – FASCIA an amazing web like substance that surrounds all our muscles, ligaments, cells & organs. Bowen works over fascia, when a move is made, the stretch receptors send impulses to the brain which communicates to the specific muscles, resetting them to an original blueprint & providing realignment.

G – GALLBLADDER in Bowen Technique there is direct move over this super fat digesting organ, freeing up restriction & supporting with gallstones. I also support with diet/lifestyle tips such as reducing a fatty diet.

H – HOT STONES they are hot & get in nice & deep to the muscles. They also are great for supporting with detoxing the body.

I – INSOMNIA which happens to all of us & I would love to support you to ensure you have a nice bedtime routine. A relaxing treatment can ensure your body is in a balanced state.

J – JOJOBA OIL a great oil for oily skin. My fav is to combine it with Patchouli & Geranium, which balances the natural sebum production that the skin produces.

K – KIDNEYS Bowen Technique has an ace Kidney procedure which works directly over this incredible filtering organ to support with stress reduction & lower back pain. Reflexology can work over the Kidney/adrenal glands to support you working at your best.

L – LIVER get your Milk Thistle in pre & post drinking to cleanse your liver with any toxins. PS don’t drink more, this is a support as well as moderate drinking & drinking water into between alcoholic drinks.

M – MOISTURISE no matter what treatment you book in for, I can check out your skin & create a tailor homemade natural moisturiser for you with SPF 25 in whooo, go skin go!

N – NATURAL, O ORGANIC OIL whoo natural and organic oil benefiting our skin, reducing the impact on our liver has in detoxing products & supporting the environment. Orange flower facial oil, get a load of that rubbed into your skin smells so good!

P – PELVIS often this can be misaligned from poor posture, accident/injury or even childbirth. This often goes hand in hand with jaw misalignment & lower back pain. Bowen technique has a great move which can support alignment, also benefiting your knees & ankles too, as well as supporting the lymphatic system to flow freely.

Q – QUALITY from the towels, the treatment bed, the music you hear, the products you smell, the colour scheme, the health questions asked, the picture on the ceiling as you like back, all is considered to support you fully & provide a quality treatment & experience.

Relaxing eco-friendly treatment room

R – RELAXATION plays an important part in health & wellbeing, being able to relax with all thoughts and emotions is something that has greatly enhanced my health. Bright.how is an amazing support network, which I highly recommend. Relaxation & taking time out for you to support your body is such a support to you and to everyone else.

S – SUPPORT I am here to support you with your health & wellbeing using all my tips and tricks that I know. It might be Bowen Technique, Aromatherapy, Hot Stones, Reflexology, Reiki, or a Luxury Facial.

T – TMJ an amazing move in Bowen Technique that can support with pre/post dental surgery, dizziness, colds/respiratory problems, releasing stress in jaw, providing realignment in the body, especially to your pelvis, as the jaw is connected to the pelvis via fascia.

U – U BE YOU I love to encourage you to be as you are & focus on your loves.

V – VERY NICE TREATMENTS 🙂

W – WATER which hydrates fascia to stay fluid & provide mobility, often after a treatment you feel thirsty because it’s like having a workout & allows toxins stored in the body to be eliminated. Your body loses up to 2 litres of H20 a day with very little expenditure, so that’s a reason to drink H20.

X – XMAS GIFTS get your gifts here, for you or a friend, go on treat yourself & de-stress.

Y – YOU I love caring for you & tailoring the treatment to you so you can receive the best care to support your health.

Z – ZZZ relaxing treatments aid the body being in a balance & support you to sleep better.
