I first experienced having my full chest and breasts included in a wellness focused, full body massage when I was in college more than 40 years ago. This transformative experience is seared in my memory, reinforced by similar massages I have received since then. Massages which integrate skillfully done, full chest massage are consistently my favorite, most enjoyable, and most physically, emotionally and spiritually powerfully healing massages.
Receiving massage in this way consistently helps me to feel connected with my own inner and outer light, with my own love and beauty, and with God. I rest in this experience of safety, and of awareness that my entire body is good enough, and indeed all of me is good enough, just the way I am.
Lying still, receiving freely given touch that is tender yet neutral and asks for nothing from me in return, I get that my body is innocent. It's an innocence that was there before anything happened and is still there and has been there all along. I don't need permission to exist. It's OK that I have the feelings that I have. It's OK that I have the thoughts that I have. It's OK that I have the body that I have.
This special massage eases and releases lumps which sometimes settle in my throat when I feel frustrated, scared, irritated, upset or anxious. This massage opens the way for me to more easily speak my truth. Full chest/breast massage has been a precious a transformative gift for me.
