Your first visit includes a review of health history, current health concerns, inspection of tongue and pulse, and an acupuncture treatment. With needles in place, you will rest for approximately 30 minutes.
In this session, your practitioner completes a full health history and gains an understanding of your current health concern(s). Your practitioner follows up with a treatment plan that will likely include nutrition and lifestyle suggestions and potentially supplement and herb recommendations.
Your practitioner will review current health concerns, noting changes and your progress. Additionally, they will likely advise on herbs, supplements, nutrition and lifestyle adjustments.
Breech Presentations Initial
This is essentially an Initial Visit (as above) but with the specific intention of turning a breech baby to vertex position. Ideally, this treatment is performed between 34 – 38 weeks, but it may be performed later in pregnancy if need be. This treatment utilizes both acupuncture and moxibustion.
Breech Presentations Return
During this return visit, your practitioner will review current health concerns and progress. As with the Breech Presentation Initial, both acupuncture and moxibustion will be utilized.
Labor Support Initial
This visit is essentially an Initial (as above), however, the goal is to support a woman's normal progression into labor. This is for pregnant women who are either past their due-date or, for medical reasons, are set to be medically induced. The treatment is often a combination of acupuncture and massage.
Of special note: In our experience, when we are working with women throughout their pregnancies, or at least 35 weeks and beyond, women are more likely to go into labor naturally.
Our Mother Roasting treatment is ideally performed one to four weeks postpartum, although it can be performed later. Your practitioner will inquire about labor, delivery and postpartum health. The treatment will be a combination of acupuncture and moxibustion. Moms love this special and ancient treatment!
