ONLINE WELLNESS WEDNESDAY WORKSHOP: Breast & Lymphatic Health for Whole Health
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.
Come learn ways to improve your breast and lymphatic health and how these are connected to your overall wellness. We will discuss breast massage techniques, the lymphatic system and participate in movements which assist in lymphatic drainage. Please wear comfortable clothing to move in and let’s have a discussion on ways to improve breast and lymphatic health to support your whole health!
This FREE Wellness Wednesday event will be presented by Krista Tarantino, RN, IBCLC of Earth Milk Moon and Alexis Pittmon, Movement Educator of Be Well Pilates.
