Daya Fisch  MS, CMT

My grandmother died from breast cancer that had spread to her bones when my father was only thirteen. The horrible pain she suffered and the wounds my father carries from watching her die affected my family in a number of ways. My father never talked about his mother, except that she was like an angel. As an adult, when I asked him and other family members, the story of her death came together.

At about the same time that I was hearing this story, my best friend was diagnosed. She did the lumpectomy and radiation that are common protocol. Less than two years later, she was facing a reoccurrence. I had done enough research at that point to know that her life was very much in danger.

At that point, I was looking for ANYTHING that I could do to help. I learned about essiac tea and coffee enemas and every alternative therapy you could imagine. Anyone who has faced cancer will understand the barrage of information about which I am talking.

I have worked with thousands of women around breast issues.  I practice massage, specializing in lymphatic massage.  I have a MS in Holistic Nurtition from Clayton College of Natural Health.  I'm a geek in that I read as much as possible about the subjectof breast health, breast cancer, nutrition, complementary therapies, detoxification studies etc, so that this project can continue to help other women.

We have more teachers on board.  Please meet some of them.  What does it take to teach this - learn it and tell your frineds!  But these women below are actually going out and educating other women.  If you are teaching these classes, let us know!

Creating Breast Health
Jane has a family history of breast cancer having touched her great aunt, an aunt and her mother. For over 5 years Jane lived with a mass that the doctors had not been concerned about. When her sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, Jane’s physician ordered a breast MRI and a needle biopsy. Fortunately the biopsy results were benign.

Jane attended Daya Fisch’s workshop on “Creating Breast Health” in December 2006. Using Daya’s technique, Jane performed daily breast lymph massage in the shower. Six months after beginning the massage, she had her annual mammogram and a follow-up appointment with the breast specialist. The mass was significantly reduced in size.
Jane is confident the daily breast lymph massage made the difference. With Daya’s blessing, Jane is now sharing her story and teaching the breast lymph massage workshops.

Jane now shares the Mammassage technique Daya taught her with others.
