In my practice and my classes, my job is to ask all the women I work with:
1- Do you perform breast self-check? (1/3 of women perform breast self-check regularly) *
2- How often? (21% practice breast self-check monthly) *
3- Do you feel confident when you are doing your self-check?
A dear colleague, Barbara Helynn Heard, forwarded this post to my attention. It is a letter from a woman to Dan Savage, the sex advice columnist, detailing her experience with breast massage during a bodywork session. She left the treatment feeling confused that she may have been drawn into a questionably sordid situation, rather than confident that she received a therapeutic treatment by a sincere professional.
In Part 1, I shared a story from “The Stranger” blog from a woman who felt uncomfortable and confused after receiving breast massage during a bodywork session. Here I offer the world an idyllic “redo” where both parties are safe and protected.
