Our breasts are our sacred source that connects to our heart energy. Daily breast massage is an sensational way to reconnect, activate, tone and grow your breasts. Scientific research has shown that breast massage helps to fight cancer. In fact, “nipple stimulation encourages blood flow and promotes the production of a useful female hormone, which encourages cells to expel cancer-causing chemicals from breast ducts,” says Professor Tim Murrell, of the Department of Community Medicine, at the University of Adelaide. Breast massage stimulates the endocrine system to secrete a powerful cocktail of youthful hormones:prolactin, oxytocin, and estrogen. Prolactin is also known to slightly enlarge the breasts. Regular breast massage lifts the breast by tightening and toning the tendons and muscles. And as a cherry on top, the ‘love hormone’ oxytocin is produced from breast and nipple stimulation, increasing feelings of connection, bonding, relaxation and pleasure. Free your breasts and the rest... View Article
