Breech Baby Treatment (60 minutes)
The combination of acupuncture and Moxa have been used for centuries to help with baby positioning and to prepare the body for labor.
Birth/ Labor Prep (60 minutes)
Pre-birth acupuncture helps to prepare mama-to-be's body for birth, with an emphasis on preparing the cervix and pelvis for labor.
Labor prep is ideally started by week 36 of pregnancy, but is helpful at any point.
Mother Warming (60 minutes)
Mother warming is a Moxa technique used to help the mother recover and restore energy after giving birth. This treatment can give relief and aid healing to any tender areas and help tone the uterus. Acupuncture points to nourish the post-birth body and promote stamina are used.
Mother warming is ideally done at 4 days- 4 weeks postpartum.
Appointments can also be scheduled in pregnancy: Bring a partner along and we will teach them how to perform mother warming at home!
