Pectoralis major muscle is located between the edge of the chest and ribs, and right up to the humerus, to which it is attached. The outer edge of this muscle is a generator for the front wall of the axilla.
Muscle fibers extend from the clavicle and the rib cage to the humerus. For this reason, the motion vector, if committed by a massage therapist massaging the breast, is directed according to the muscle fibers. The palm of one hand gently moves from one clavicle to the axilla, and the palm of the other hand – from the chest to the shoulder joint, respectively. In this hands massage therapist does not touch the nipples. Stroking, rubbing his palms circular or fingertips are the main method used for breast massage.During breast massage kneading the muscles, it is captured first and second fingers perpendicular to the direction of its muscle fibers.

Massage therapist at the time located at the rear. For the therapeutic effects of massage on the chest diaphragm ends of the 2 nd – 5 th are introduced into the right and left hypochondrium, so, so long beard brush was thrust upward.
