  • 12. Breast Anatomy Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 13. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014 The breast is a specialized gland that grows as an appendage of the skin. It sits on top of the Retromammary Space which sits directly on top of the Pectroralis Major Muscle.
  • 14. Between the Lobes and filling out the breast contour is Fat, which is the major component of the breast. Individual breast size and shape is somewhat dependent on the amount of fat in the breast. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 15. The functional unit of the breast is a glandular system of 15 – 20 Lobes that produce and deliver milk to the nursing infant. Each Lobe contains 20 – 40 clusters of milk producing cells called Lobules. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 16. The Lymphatic System • The lymphatic system bathes every cell in our body, filtering and destroying toxins. • In the breast, lymph flows from superficial to deep and most lymph exits the breast through the Retromammary Space at the rear of the breast. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 17. Lymph Flow Can Be Restricted Due To: Engorgement and Swelling Scar Tissue From Accidents or Surgeries Tight Muscles Poor Posture Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 18. More Factors That Can Restrict Lymph Flow Emotional Holding Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Other Medical Conditions Sedentary Lifestyles Social Mores That Inhibit Breast Movement Restrictive Clothing Such As Poorly Fitted Bras Worn for Extended Periods That Impede Lymph Flow Through the Retromammary Space! Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 19. About 75% of lymph drains to the axillary (underarm) nodes. These nodes filter lymph and destroy undesirable substances. Most breast cancer cancers occur in the upper outer quadrant of the breast, the portion nearest the axilla. All breast cancer originates in the lining of the milk ducts. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 20. Movement of Lymph Lymph movement through the body is largely dependent on muscle contraction and body movement. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 21. Unlike the rest of the body, there is very little muscle tissue in the breasts, further restricting the flow of lymph. The natural rebounding action of breasts is the main method of drainage for breast tissue. Lymph can become stagnant in the breast, retaining toxins and inhibiting proper nutrition to breast tissues. When lymph cannot move easily, breast health is compromised. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
  • 22. Lymph Drainage Through The Retromammary Space Breast Massage is designed to move lymph out the of the breast through the Retrommamary Space (loose connective tissue that allows the breast to move freely on the chest) and other channels. Breast Massage also aids in venous drainage and in bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the tissues. Intuitive Bodywork Massage Therapy 2014
