Do your boobs get swollen, tender, and painful in the days or weeks leading up to your period?
You find yourself...
Sleeping in sports bras,
Trying to avoid having sex with your partner,
Skipping workouts that could cause any amount of bouncing.
THIS ONE IS FOR YOU.
We have unfortunately been taught a lie - that cyclical breast pain is normal and something we have to put up with as bleeding babes. I'm here to tell you, that's just not true.
Painful, cyclical breast symptoms are common, but they are not normal. Pain is your body's way of telling you something isn't right. The same goes for breast pain.
For many, cyclical breast symptoms can be relieved by simply giving your boobies a good 'ol wigglin' and jigglin'. That's right, you gotta let the girls out of their holsters, I mean bras, and let them bounce around!
Our beautiful boobies are often smooshed up against our chest in bras for 8 to 12 hours a day. They don't really move around all that much unless we intentionally choose to bounce 'em around. No wonder they're all tender and uncomfortable.
Think about it this way - Imagine how painful and uncomfortable your arm would be if you walked around with it strapped up towards the sky all day, or if you sat cross-legged for 8 hours straight. That shit would hurt!
Your boobies need some movement in order to feel good, too!
That's why today I'm sharing with you this SUPER simple self-massage practice that helped me overcome more than a decade of worth of cyclical breast pain, swelling, and tenderness in just 3 weeks.

I struggled with cyclical breast pain and swelling from the age of 9 when I got my first period. It got so bad in my twenties that I had two different types of bras - regular bras and period bras that were an entire size or 2 bigger than the regular bras.
For two weeks out of every month I didn't even want to look at my poor swollen boobies let alone touch them, or *gasp* let someone else touch them.
I did some research (before my women's healing arts & hormonal health coaching days) and read that estrogen excess could be causing my breast symptoms, so I overhauled my diet, ditched home + body products with estrogen-mimicking chemicals, and took every estrogen-lowering supplement under the sun.
Good news - all of my other estrogen excess symptoms disappeared. Bad news - the breast pain and swelling did not.
It wasn't until I learned about lymphatic massage for breast health in my women's healing arts training that I actually got relief from my lifelong breast symptoms.
Lymphatic massage for breast health works by using hands-on pumping motions to strategically get lymph flowing around the breast. It takes less than 5 minutes a day and I had my first ever cycle with ZERO breast pain or swelling in just 3 weeks of daily self-massage!
