Breast Treatment Options to Alleviate Compression

Many women suffer from restrictions in and around the breast area. When brassieres and other garments pull too tightly, they can restrict the fascia, the tissues that “hold everything together,” all throughout the neck and shoulders, and especially under the arms and along the sides of the ribcage.

This directly affects the cranial base and the bones and muscles of the cranium (skull) itself. In general, women experience a great deal of soreness and inflammation in this area. This condition is exaggerated by breast enlargement or reduction, mastectomy and injury.

A qualified craniosacral therapist can help to release the strain and restriction that wearing a bra can cause, unwinding pain and stress and unlocking long-held patterns of compression.

Lucke Mercedez is a craniosacral therapist at Medicine Wheel Dental Health and Wellness Center and La Vie Day Spa. Contact her at 520-743-7101 or 520-232-9500.
