Massaging your breasts will clear the milk ducts and cause the milk to flow more freely, which will help empty the breasts and therefore
trigger higher milk production.
Breast massage is not just for those mothers wanting to increase their milk
supply. It is also an important area of breast health that is neglected
due to the image that society has created about “touching yourself." Your
breasts do not get exercise or stimulation, and as a result, you will
have a fluid buildup, which can lead to breast problems.
Benefits of this Type of Massage
An increase in blood circulation within the breast.

Breast Massage Tips
The best massage technique: first start pumping the lymph glands in your armpits. This lymphatic massage will get the blood and toxins flowing.
Use a lotion while massaging: a natural lotion if you are breastfeeding. Coconut or olive oil are natural and safe to use.
Gentle rubbing and squeezing is enough to get the blood flowing. Do not press too hard, or you could damage your glandular tissue. The rule of thumb is that it should not be painful.
When you feel your breasts warming up, it’s a good sign; this indicates that the blood flow in your breasts has increased.
The massage should be done daily.
You can massage your breasts every time you have a bath; you can use soap as a lubricant. This way you won't forget, and you will be more relaxed during a massage.
