Massage will do nothing for fat or gyno.

Losing weight will reduce (somewhat) the fat component of the gyno -- but not the breast tissue itself, which will not respond to weight loss.

to precise that out a little, where the fat is part of excess body mass i could believe it, but it seems to me if i haven't misread you that it shouldn't abate from the gyne content for the same reason weight loss wouldn't significantly reduce a woman's breasts, that they're sort of programmed to hang onto it for when nature calls on it for the purpose they were designed for. 
* a man is more than a body will ever tell
* if it screws up your life the same, is there really any such thing as "mild" gyne?

If a woman loses significant amounts of weight, her breasts will diminish in size.  Many overweight men with large breasts will experience shrinkage in their gyno with significant weight loss -- but the gyno never disappears entirely.  It is the fat component that has diminished -- not the breast tissue.  In fact, many men find that with significant weight loss, even though their breasts have diminished in size, their breasts now seem even more prominent because the rest of their body has also decreased in size.

There is a common fallacy that weight loss and working out can get rid of gyne -- it doesn't.

Agreed completely!!! Weight loss is always good if you are overweight and may give some benefit, but the gland will persist without surgery....

STAY AWAY FROM THAT, When you have gynecomastia think of touching them as a taboo.

It can actually make it worse inducing things like prolactin (correct me if im wrong) and inhibiting the circulation of estrogen (I think). Not enought reasearch to give you a straight answer.

(this is what I have personally found out)
