Acupuncture and Acupressure Techniques for Labor & Delivery

8 PDA's

Pre-Registration Fee: $175.00 (early registration ends one week prior)


In this class, students learn to recognize the familiar faces of yin and yang throughout the course of labor and delivery. Using a clinical problem-solving approach, students learn to facilitate normal labor. Specific differential diagnosis needling and tui na hand techniques are introduced for labor that is excessively painful or failing to progress, preparation treatments, and moxa for breech. The course addresses but does not remove the malpractice insurance and credentialing matters that need to be addressed to needle professionally in a hospital. The acupressure techniques are applicable and teachable for any birth anywhere.
