Breast Health is not often a topic discussed unless in relation to a mammogram or cancer diagnosis. 1 in 8 women in the US will develop breast cancer and the death rates of those diagnosed are higher than any other cancer, besides lung cancer. We need to take matters into our own hands, literally.
Gather with us via Zoom and learn how your breast and lymphatic health are connected to your overall wellness. In the privacy of your own home, we will discuss the lymphatic system, learn breast self massage techniques and participate in movements which assist in lymphatic drainage. Please wear comfortable clothing to move in and let’s have a frank discussion on self care tools to support your whole health!
This wellness workshop event will be presented by Krista Tarrantino, RN, IBCLC of Earth Milk Moon and Alexis Pittmon Movement Educator of Be Well Pilates.
About your presenters:
Krista Tarantino, RN, IBCLC
Krista is an experienced Registered Nurse specializing in postpartum and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant with a BA in Social and Behavioral Sciences. Through her years of experience working in Mother/Baby care in multiple hospitals throughout California, she has witnessed the powerful emotional and spiritual shift which takes place; as when a child is born, so is a mother. Krista is honored to walk with women through these transformational experiences, which has opened her eyes to the importance of conscious health care and postpartum wellness. Teaching women to find guidance through informed choice, community, and within themselves has become her mission. She believes that when women are educated and empowered, our wellness can be an intuitive art. Krista loves making herbal infusions, spending time in nature, being in the ocean, traveling, meditating and teaching women about connecting to our natural cycles and traditional postpartum healing modalities.
