[Acupuncture therapy of hypogalactia]
Reference is made to the current tendency to reappraise breast feeding in the light of both medical and social-cultural considerations, and attention is called to the current lack of sound treatments for hypogalactia. The physiopathological mechanisms underlying this condition are examined, and an account is given of results obtained with acupuncture reflexotherapy in this field. The conclusion is drawn that the technique is effective, innocuous and well accepted.
