If you’re looking for natural treatments and ways to keep your breasts healthy, learn how to clear energy blocks in your breasts by massaging your feet. When energy is blocked or not flowing smoothly, that’s when physical symptoms can appear. From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, breast lumps and breast cancer are simply the result of stagnant Qi. Thus, to clear physical blocks, you must get your Qi flowing.

5 Steps to Release Stuck Emotional Energy Related to Breast Cancer and Breast Lumps

If you have a breast lump or you are recovering from breast cancer, I highly recommend tuning into your body to hear what emotions may be held inside. When you acknowledge and let go of the emotions, you truly release the root cause of what has caused the obstruction to form in the first place.

Here are 5 simple steps to help you release stuck emotional energy in the breasts.

  1. Sit quietly for 15 minutes. Try your best to simply relax and focus on your breathing. Have a journal with you.
  2. If you notice a lot of chatter in your mind, simply be aware of it and set the intention that you would like to quiet your mind even a just a little bit.
  3. When you feel calmer, quieter and more centered, bring your awareness to your breasts. Notice what you are physically feeling. Do you feel tension? Do you feel pain? Do you feel nothing?
  4. Then bring your awareness even deeper inside until you feel like you’ve focused in on the exact area of your breasts where you are holding the most emotion.
  5. Ask your body what is going on. Start writing. You might need a box of tissues handy, but the brilliant thing is that you are beginning the process of acknowledgement and release.

Chinese Reflexology Points for Natural Breast Health

In addition to practicing emotional release, here are a couple of Chinese Reflexology points that you can practice to help your Qi flow smoothly. When you massage these Chinese reflexology points, it’s like you’re balancing the flow of your river to clear blocked energy and to support your body in clearing accumulated “debris” as well.

As well, if you are pregnant or have an acute heart condition, do not practice reflexology. If you are not sure whether it is appropriate for you to practice reflexology, consult your medical practitioner.

1) Chinese Reflexology Point for Breasts

Reflexology breast point for breast health, natural treatmentsThe Chinese reflexology point for the breasts isn’t a point. It’s actually a large area on the top of your foot. The breast reflexology point is a rectangle that extends from the base of your toes to slightly below your big toe knuckle.

To massage this area, make a fist. Then, use all of your knuckles to rub in an up and down motion. The key is to get the right amount of pressure. If it’s too hard, you can bruise the sensitive area on top of your feet, but if it’s too light, you’re not getting the full benefit of the massage. Don’t just skim the surface of your foot, but feel into the sides of the bones of your feet too.

Sensitive areas indicate energy blocks that may or may not have manifested in the physical body. When I was first introduced to Chinese Reflexology, my reflexologist knew simply from massaging my breast reflexology point that I had a breast lump. While I was squirming in pain, he suddenly asked, “Do you have a breast lump in your right breast?” That’s how accurately your feet reflect your body!

You should aim to massage this area for about 30 to 60 seconds per foot about twice a week.

2) Chinese Reflexology Point for Lymphatic Drainage

Chinese reflexology lymphatic system, breast reflexologyThe lymphatic system is an often-overlooked system in your body. It’s made up of lymphatic vessels, lymph fluid, lymph nodes, and it also includes the thymus and the spleen.

You can find lymph nodes throughout your body, but there are large groups of them located in the breasts, armpits and groin area.

The lymphatic system is responsible for quite a lot of stuff, including:

  • Draining excess fluid from surrounding tissues and returning it to the blood
  • Defending the body against infection by producing lymphocytes and filtering foreign substances and pathogens from lymph fluid

Both of these functions are a fancy way of saying that the lymphatic system helps to clear the gunk out of your body. Remember the river analogy where if things aren’t flowing, then debris starts collecting? Your lymphatic system plays an important role to keep your river flowing.

The reflexology point for lymphatic drainage is located on the top of both of your feet. It’s in the webbing between the big toe and the second toe and extends all the way down until the bottom of the “V” formed where your metatarsals (long bones in the foot just below the toes) meet each other.

Use the knuckle of your index finger to massage in a downward direction only (from base of toes towards bottom of the “V”). This follows the proper flow of lymph drainage in the body. To help the Qi flow through this area, do about 30 downward strokes per foot about twice a week.

P.S. The best way to get the Qi flowing in your lymphatic system is to exercise! Physical movement is the only way that lymph fluid gets moved through your body.

More Chinese Reflexology Points

Because breast lumps and breast cancer involve the whole body, it would be beneficial to massage additional points to support your body holistically. The root causes from an emotional perspective must be released and the underlying Qi disharmonies in the body must also be balanced.

The Spleen, Stomach and Liver points would be very beneficial to massage. As well, since you are clearing stuck energy and toxins, I would highly recommend massaging the Kidney point. The kidneys help to excrete waste from the body and from a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, they are considered the root of life.
