Having written a 27-page treatment protocol on mastitis and associated conditions, feel confident you are choosing practitioners that are well-educated in breastfeeding, and issues that arise with the breast.
What to expect?
Step 1. Ultrasound therapy vibrates and jiggles the tissues that are blocked to loosen the blockage. We focus this on the congested area of your breast.
Step 2. Massage therapy from our highly skilled hands is next to move the fluids and lumps away from the congested & problematic area. This softens the tissues to regain fluid flow to the breast and relieve pressure & pain. Many women expect this to be painful and in fact it’s not. You will be very comfortable, we guarantee it!
Step 3. You are taught how to massage the breast tissue for the best drainage to avoid this scenario in future. The right technique with self-massage can make all the difference.
Don’t be fooled by mastitis practitioners only offering breast ultrasound alone. We hear of this frequently from mastitis clients when they are looking for more. The massage component is so important to move fluid blockages, helping your body to heal itself. That’s why it’s at the core of what we do.
Why is our specific treatment sought after by GP’s and lactation consultants?
We have a detailed understanding of:
- the breast tissue & it’s detailed functions
- how to drain breast tissue that has become inflamed and/or infected
- how to move the lumps and fluids from where they are currently congested
With our experience & knowledge of the physical differences of mastitis, blocked ducts, engorgement, & breast tissue congestion, our method can help clarify what is often a confusing & stressful situation.
Our practitioners have also identified many abscesses & can refer to appropriate avenues for resolution.
