A 41 year old nursing mother presented with a right breast infection (including her nipple and the entire lateral half of the breast) of 6 days duration.  She described the pain as “excruciating,” especially when she nursed (which, of course, she continued to do in order to help the infection to heal.)  IRT to the nipple and breast areas was performed.  In addition, Touch and Tap technique (Set Point Technique) (tapping R St-1 while she touched the painful breast areas) resulted in a 75% reduction in pain. Several minutes of tapping St-1 was necessary for maximum pain relief.  (Note: When both IRT and Touch and Tap / Set Point Technique are indicated in the same patient, performing IRT first enhances therapeutic effectiveness.)
