Use of low-voltage electrical impulses on the skin to cause muscle contractions for physiotherapeutic, pain treatment, sports training or cosmetic purposes, not all of which have been well proven.
This type of electrical impulses does not have to alter the production or quality of breast milk, especially if it is not applied directly to the breast.
Despite the low voltage and amperage of the electrical energy used, it is prudent not to apply it at the same time as breastfeeding so as not to expose the infant to any risk.
Do not apply to the chest during pregnancy, as it has been used with some success to induce labor. (Schrocksnadel 1990, Tal 1988)
