Acupressure for Birth
Did you know how helpful acupressure can be for birth?
Anyone who’s experienced the benefits of acupuncture or acupressure knows how powerful this modality can be. It’s been used for thousands of years so I’d say that’s a pretty esteemable track record.
In this video I talk about 4 key points that are commonly used in acupuncture to influence the birth process.
I remember the first time I used a point to encourage contractions. The response was immediate. She went from having contractions that were spaced apart every 7-10 minutes to contractions coming consistently every 3 minutes!
The effects of some points can also be profoundly relaxing, or distract from the pain of contractions, or positively influence the uterus or baby.
Enjoy the video and give the points a try. Let me know how it goes!
