Esoteric Breast Massage: A Wonderful Tool Alongside Conventional Medicine

by Donna Gianniotis, Australia

Four and a half years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 33 at the time. It came as a shock as I thought that I lived a healthy lifestyle. I was a yoga teacher, ate a ‘healthy diet’, exercised, meditated, and practised yoga. However, I knew from the moment of the diagnosis that this wasn’t something that happened to me. I had a feeling somewhere deep in my body that this was the result of how I had been living.

I spent the year going through conventional treatments, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and IVF to freeze my eggs. I also searched for answers as to the underlying root cause of breast cancer.

It was a year or so later that I came to the work of Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. I remember sitting at the first Esoteric Medicine presentation that I attended in person that was presented by Serge. I connected strongly to what was being presented in regard to the need for women to self-nurture; it wasn’t the first time that I had heard this, but it just seemed to resonate much more deeply that night, I knew it in my body to be true. It felt as though Serge was talking directly to me.

This understanding has continued to unfold for me and it wasn’t until I started to receive regular Esoteric Breast Massages (EBM) at the end of last year, that I could really connect to the energy of being self-nurturing. Before it was a concept, but not one that I really understood from my body. I attended a Women’s Group where the Esoteric Breast Massage was discussed. I resonated with all that was said and booked in for some sessions.

These sessions were and continue to be deeply healing for me. The first few sessions were exposing. I had rashes that came up all over my body that lasted for a couple of months. With these rashes came the feelings of how I’d been living in disregard, the pain, the hurts that I’d felt throughout my life. I’d had these rashes many times before, but not to this extent. I also had these rashes 12 months before the diagnosis of the cancer. I know now that this was my body’s way of telling me that I wasn’t living in a way that was harmonious or nurturing. The rashes passed and I understood that these were my hurts that I had buried within me. Also what came was a clear understanding of how to truly connect with myself. It wasn’t intellectual, but was a felt sense that came from my body.

Since having the EBMs I have been able to connect more to me. I’m able to feel that I am a beautiful, amazing woman, that I deserve every ounce of love that I can give to myself, to be self-honouring in all that I do, to love the woman that I am. My relationship to my breasts has totally changed. Actually, my relationship to my whole body and to myself as a woman has changed and this continues to develop. For the most part, I love being me. It’s a far cry from the person I used to be – to wake up each morning and not want to be me.

Having recently come off Tamoxifen, I have returned to having a normal period. My periods are very different to how they were pre-cancer. I no longer have pain, cramping or dark red clotting. My periods are heavy, but are a bright red healthy flow. The Women’s Groups have been an integral part of me learning practical ways to live in a way that I can honour myself as a woman and in turn, I see that reflected back in my body.

I am deeply grateful for the work that is presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and for the wonderful work of the practitioners and in particular for the Esoteric Breast Massage modality.

Esoteric Breast Massage – a wonderful tool alongside conventional medicine.

  1. Donna while I was reading your honest blog I could feel your power when re-connecting to the woman deep inside of you. That feeling is for me very inspiring as it is seems to be a reflection of my own power deep inside of me.

  2. In a world where we put many expectations on our shoulders as women a reminder of the importance of self nurturing is very important. If we are not nurturing ourselves as women then we have nothing of quality to offer another. It’s no different to the safety announcement when flying, to first put on your own oxygen mask if needed, before putting one on your children.

  3. What could be a more positive outcome from Cancer than learning to embrace yourself, to love the person that you are? While its a huge diagnosis, its also a wake up call – a golden opportunity.

  4. Thank you Donna for a very inspiring story, about what cancer has shown you and the loving care you are giving to yourself. I have started EBMs again and am feeling what it is like to deeply nurture myself, feel what my body is sharing which gives me a greater sense of solidness in my body. EBMs are a very powerful modality bringing about true healing.

  5. The journey of cancer is incredibly challenging, and to have access to a modality such as Esoteric Breast Massage to support you on that journey is without doubt a great gift.

  6. I too had intense rashes on my body on and off for years, it was all the poison coming out of my body from the total disregard I had been living in. I am thankful now that I had the rash as at least the poison was leaving my body and not staying in as it would probably be cancer by now.

  7. Thank you for sharing that Donna. It is really beautiful to hear how the women’s groups and the EBM have supported you. I feel they work so well in conjunction with the support available through doctors, they just bring a responsible body to the tests and the surgery. That has got to be beneficial all round.

  8. Love how you present this Donna – I think a lot of women would love to have the room to speak about these things, if only they allowed themselves to. It seems however that the trend is not going this way but more on how heavy kettle bells you can lift and swing. More of these discussions please so that we can come back to truly looking after our precious bodies.

  9. It is gorgeous that you felt to share your experience and the appreciation you have for how Universal Medicine and the EBMs have supported you so profoundly to connect to yourself as a women and honour yourself in a way you deserve.

    1. This is paramount really and a true test of how things support you, are you being treated by something that is adding to your woes or are you being treated by something that is bringing you clearer and supporting you to truly heal? From what I have seen personally and from what we are reading here the EBM modality is certainly supportive of a true healing and also working alongside our current traditional treatments.

  10. How very needed deeply nurturing ourselves is, is very much felt in your blog and most of all how very natural this actually is for us. So it is a relearning of what we know is true for us, step by step, living accordingly to the rhythm of our bodies.

  11. Stories like this inspire me to understand how much more there is to illness and disease. The opportunity they allow for healing and changing what has led to the illness in the first place. There is so much fear around it all, especially cancer, so hearing an empowering story such as this really breaks through that consciousness and delivers the blessing that the body is actually giving.

  12. Its a very positive reflection you are offering to others Donna, as far as viewing the cancer as an opportunity to heal.

    1. This article is allowing and showing others how they can support themselves further with what is a shocking and far reaching disease. It gives us all more understanding on what goes on and how modalities like the EBM can support in your treatment regime. With more and more people being touched by this each day it’s great to see this level of care available.

  13. The Esoteric Breast Massage (EBM) is a modality that truly supports women to re-connect with themselves and their breasts. Most women are not even aware of just how disconnected from their breasts they actually are-I know I certainly wasn’t aware of how disconnected from my breasts I was until I experienced the EBM. The depth of stillness that a woman can go to in the EBM is deeply healing and so very needed.

  14. Esoteric Breast Massage (EBM) truly is a wonderful tool alongside conventional medicine and a great support even before we get sick or unwell as it restores us as women into our true nature of nurturing, stillness and reveals to us our preciousness.

  15. Developing a relationship with our body and actually listening to what it is telling us promotes self-responsibility for our health and wellbeing. And in a world where the rates of disease are escalating this to me is both integral and essential to the very health of our conventional health care system.

  16. The Esoteric Breast Massage offers something unique, and that is a space for a woman to be herself. Sounds small, but is everything.

  17. It’s extraordinary really how I lived what you could say was a normal life on the surface and I seemed like a good moral standing person of society but I was just fitting into the mould on what was accepted. I had been shaped by family, education and religious core beliefs that I was not so aware of were harming me. I did not love myself. I did not respect and was not guided how to self-care and nurture my body. My role models – e.g. sportsmen failed me.
    Serge Benhayon and the Benhayon family have become my true role models that deeply inspire me in every way. From the love they express and honour everyone equally, to the integrity and dedication to how they work. They continue to be everything in every way how a human being should live.

  18. The Esoteric Breast Massage modality is deeply healing and nurturing and this is a testimony to how much your body has changed with the support of them ‘Having recently come off Tamoxifen, I have returned to having a normal period. My periods are very different to how they were pre-cancer. I no longer have pain, cramping or dark red clotting. My periods are heavy, but are a bright red healthy flow.’ AMAZING.

  19. Thank you for providing this beautiful insight into what it was like for you to receive cancer diagnosis and treatment. I am astounded at the grace and acceptance you handled it all with. You clearly supported yourself in every way you could and it has paid off.

  20. When a woman embraces her body and honours what she feels, self-worth issues can dissolve and the true power of that woman in her nurturing and sacred qualities can be lived and inspire others.

  21. The Esoteric Modalities support me to connect to myself and are helping me to develop a loving relationship with my body. The modalities support me to feel good about myself which was sorely missing in my life before attending Universal Medicine. The Esoteric Modalities have changed and are changing how I am in the world.

  22. Donna what you share here is very inspiring and supportive for all women to read, the Esoteric Breast Massages are a beautiful way for a woman to re-connect to herself and to begin to self-nurture and self-care in a way that is tender and honouring of her in every way.

  23. Imagine a modality that offers the space to feel the love you are as a woman, to like what you see in the mirror simply because it reflects how you already feel inside, and to treasure your way of being with yourself. Such a modality is available – the Esoteric Breast Massage.

  24. With so many women contracting breast cancer, it would seem sensible to consider any complementary medicine modality that can support what can be at times a difficult treatment process.

  25. This is beautiful Donna, and yes nurturing and honouring ourselves is imperative, ‘I am a beautiful, amazing woman, that I deserve every ounce of love that I can give to myself, to be self-honouring in all that I do, to love the woman that I am.’

  26. Esoteric Breast Massage is a modality that helps support women to re-connect with themselves and their breasts, much needed in our world.

  27. To express what hurts us and not to hide it and allow it to fester is very good medicine for the body. To simply acknowledge that something hurts, that something is not okay, is very honoring and nurturing for ourselves. This process is always a deepening one and it is one which we continuously deepen the love and understanding for ourselves. Once this process is started, it is surrender that we learn. I know many people who would stop themselves from feeling any hurts for fear that once they start, they cannot cope with what will come from the many years of not feeling. But our bodies know what we can take, and no one has died from a deepening of love–but many harm themselves when we hold back our own love away from ourselves.

  28. “Since having the EBMs I have been able to connect more to me. I’m able to feel that I am a beautiful, amazing woman, that I deserve every ounce of love that I can give to myself, to be self-honouring in all that I do, to love the woman that I am.” A beautiful testimonial of the deepening connection we can feel with the Esoteric Breast Massage.

  29. What a beautiful sharing Donna of how conventional medicine and esoteric modalities marry together so seamlessly and effortlessly. That there is more to an illness or disease just presenting, that there is more to feel into for each person, to understand what and how it has presented, the actual origins and how to achieve true healing.

  30. You know it doesn’t take a lot for us to get back on track aligning and living the harmony, love and wisdom that is innately with our body and being but we do need the true energetic guidance in how to do this … queue Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine for this is exactly what (among a trillion other incredible things) they bring.

  31. Amazing how your relationship with yourself has changed Donna. You have it clear that even those of us that live ‘healthy’ lives are even in a chance of getting cancer. What is so apparent is that we aren’t taught that there is more to medicine than pills, liquid and surgery and in fact the simplest medicine like self nurturing and self appreciation goes a long way in improving our physical health.

  32. What once had worked no longer worked. By this I mean that we constantly evolve and need to adjust – this brings a more universality to earth.. As expansion goes beyond physical form.. Hence it is an interesting observation to see that this is what we as humanity are not so well at, we like to keep our restrictive or comfortable ways and avoid this responsibility of universality we then feel we are heading. Hence it is the fight against the light of expansion we need to stop and not so much the physical acts. It is a big choice of will that either connects us back to this universality or not. A gorgeous reminder that there is so much more to explore than our eyes can see.. We belong to something big… And it is our call when to make it.

  33. This is a very important sharing Donna. Getting diagnosed with breast cancer while ticking all the boxes of what is normally considered taking great care of yourself is a real eye opener that something is missing from this picture. Your sharing is a confirmation of the importance of being in connection with ourself and nurturing from this connection rather than from a mental construct.

  34. What I can truly sense is the lack of understanding we have for ourselves as women.. We seem to come so loaded with ideals, images of how to be and want to look, how to behave and attract people etc.. But where does that come from? And is that who we really are or want to be?
    Hence, we are currently in the result of our past, and it is lacking our true understanding. When we allow ourselves the space to observe our choices, life, movements, sounds – we will be stunned to see what happens and the clarity this brings to our life. Including the understanding for ourselves and each other as women (and beyond) that brings one big factor in us alive – LOVE.

  35. To understand the true root of the illness, in this case breast cancer, and be on the path of true healing you certainly found the right person and organisation for this .. Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine ✨ I have learned so much from them and healed so much with their support which is a continuing unfolding, healing and learning process.

  36. Beautiful Donna. I too would not be the woman I am today if it weren’t for this incredible modality. The Esoteric Breast Massage frees the woman up be herself, in the knowing that it is only through a body that is deeply nurtured and cared for, that the woman can bring what she is here to bring – Godliness in physical form. It is this that will heal not just the woman but the world at large.

  37. Thank you Donna, a great line here ” I’m able to feel that I am a beautiful, amazing woman, that I deserve every ounce of love that I can give to myself, to be self-honouring in all that I do, to love the woman that I am.” This is such a huge leap for a woman to be able to feel this way about herself, it’s not how women generally feel and it highlights the powerful healing Universal Medicine and Esoteric Womens Health offer to women. Your story also highlights the connection towards how we feel about ourselves and how that can translate into ways of being and living that impact on our health. It’s beautiful to feel what’s unfolded for you and also reflect on those same changes within myself to truly love, cherish and honour me.

  38. The importance of having support and understanding when you are healing from a major illness is invaluable. The Esoteric Breast Massage is not a cure for cancer or any other illness, but it offers understanding about lifestyle and how the body is affected by it, and this can be a great support in recovery.

  39. It must be very disillusioning to not only have to deal with a diagnosis of breast cancer but have the false foundation of a believed ‘healthy lifestyle’ pulled out from under you. This is the challenge but also the healing offered to break out of something that is not true or supporting your body. Even though something like yoga may give a sense of identity and temporary relief in the body, it is not ‘it’ if a 33 year old woman can still get breast cancer.
