Lymphatic Brushing for Breast Health

Posted by on Thu, Oct 13, 2016

October is Breast HEALTH Awareness month!

Many women are aware and being bombarded with the "Pinkness" of October.

Breast cancer this, breast cancer that... How about we look at it from a different perspective? Instead of focusing on Breast Cancer, how about we focus on Breast HEALTH?

Let's talk prevention. 

Have You Heard of Lymphatic Brushing?

Lymphatic brushing is a perfect example of a proactive technique for good breast health. Keeping the lymphatics moving and stimulated is a great tool for overall good health.

Posted by on Wed, May 05, 2010

When we were invited to be breakfast sponsors for last weekend's Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, I had no idea what would be involved other than getting up at 3 am to serve bagels to 3,000 (mostly) women. There were the details of arranging to collect the bagels and cream cheese from Booeymongers, and how to squeeze 3,000 bagels and cream cheese into just 2 vehicles.

Breast Thermography: An alternative to mammography?

Posted by on Wed, Nov 25, 2009

    Many women are concerned about the recent recommendations to limit mammography to women over age 50. On November 16th, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), an independent panel of doctors and scientists that make recommendations to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, announced a change in their mammography screening guidelines.
