If you ever get intense pricking pains or aches in the breast area, then this Jin Shin Jyutsu self help hold for breast discomforts might be helpful.

There are a few common reasons that might cause pain and discomfort:

  • Hormone fluctuation
  • Birth control pills (can be a side effect)
  • A bra that is too tight
  • Stress
  • Mastitis (breast infection)

Moreover, breast tissue extends to under the armpit where we find a lot of lymph nodes or glands. There are also lymph nodes that run up the center of the chest. So in my view, keeping the lymph clear, i.e. free of congestion also goes a long way to maintaining healthy breasts.

A special energy function

We have a variety of special energy functions.

Working with them can really help the body, and alleviate many discomforts. To clear discomforts in the front of the chest, there is a special energy function entailing three energy pathways that run along the back and front of the body as follows.

Runs along front and back

Two energy pathways run along the front of the body.

For the left side of the body, one of them starts on the right last rib, crosses the solar plexus area, travels along the left breast area into the top of the arm at the acromium process and then travels along the left arm into the palm sides of the thumb and index finger. The other energy pathway is found along the base of the pelvis starting on the left side and travels along the right side of the body along the abdomen, the rib cage, the collarbone, the neck, the jaw, the teeth until the base of the left cheek bone (SEL 21).

One energy pathway runs along the back of the body.

The left side energy travels from the top of the shoulder blade (SEL 11 and SEL 3) from the base of the neck along the arms into the back side of the index finger.

The same happens for the right side of the body.

So when this energy function is congested or stagnated, it can show up as discomforts in the breast area.

Simple Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help for Breast Discomforts

I am still amazed at how some simple self help holds can be so helpful. So remember this one to clear any breast, or front of chest discomforts the moment you start feeling them.

For the left energy, place your right hand over the left shoulder so that the fingers rest on the area between the top corner of the shoulder blade and the spine. Gently fold the left fingers onto the base of the left thumb. Hold for a few minutes, or until there is relief.
