Using Acupressure For Mastitis Relief

Another option for women with breastfeeding issues is to use acupressure techniques to find relief, especially for conditions such as mastitis.

The HealthPoint™ device is a DIY acupressure device that allows you to accurately locate and stimulate the relevant points on the body that are causing health concerns. Once the points are correctly stimulated as indicated in the Mastering Acupressure book that the device is accompanied with, its then possible to find relief for conditions such as mastitis.

Robert Redfern’s daughter Lucy used the HealthPoint™ device during her pregnancy to achieve relief for these breastfeeding problems. Lucy used the HealthPoint™ device as Serrapeptase was not widely available at the time. Therefore, this can be considered as another natural solution to support and achieve relief for breastfeeding problems.
