In brief: Gentle

Simple gentle massage will do for half the length of a normal breastfeeding, no need to make yourself sore, make sure your hands have a lotion with some lanolin to avoid irritation of the skin.
Gentle rubbing or rolling the nipple and areola with your hand works, or simply use a breast pump to mimic the baby suckling
