Step 1. Ultrasound therapy vibrates and jiggles the tissues to loosen a blockage. This is focused on the congested, painful area of your breast.
Step 2. Massage therapy from our highly skilled hands to move fluids and lumps away from the problematic area. This can soften the tissues to regain fluid flow to the breast and relieve pressure & pain. Many women expect massage 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. A take-home sheet will be provided so you don’t have to memorise the techniques.
Step 4. Follow-up care. Our plan is to get you past this challenge and we will follow-up with you until you are “right”.
Don’t be fooled by mastitis practitioners only offering breast ultrasound alone. The massage component is very important to move fluid blockages, helping your body to heal itself. That’s why it’s essential in what we do.
Why is our specific treatment sought after by GP’s and lactation consultants?
We have a detailed understanding of:
- 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 breast abscesses by feel, & can refer to appropriate avenues for resolution.
Our goal is to relieve the pain & give you a solid plan for recovery. Breast-feeding challenges create stress. So providing you with genuine support is also high on our priority list and CLEAR answers to your questions.
We are a lovely, friendly bunch that work with you to get it right. From our knowledgeable admin team & professional Osteopathic care, to the follow-up contact on your progress, we work with you from start to finish.
