Acupuncture for Hormonal Imbalance

Endometriosis is a health condition that takes place in a woman’s body when the same endometrial cells that are found in the lining of the uterus are dislodged and begin to grow outside of the uterus and into other areas of the body.

Acupuncture and Breech Presentation

When a woman gives birth, the baby’s position as it exits the birth canal is crucial to ensure its safety. When a baby is said to be breeched, it means the baby is coming out feet first versus coming out head first. This can present complications such as limb displacement and blood circulation deficiencies.

C-sections are often the protocol for breech babies. However, many women are concerned about of the risks involved with such a procedure such as infections, bleeding, longer hospital stays and extended healing time.

This is why traditional Chinese medicine practices such as moxibustion – a specific kind of Read more …

Breech fetal presentation (where the position of the fetus is opposite how it would normally lie within the uterus) commonly occurs in pregnancies.   Left untreated a breech presentation may result in the delivery of the buttocks or a foot first, significantly increasing perinatal mortality risk and leading to a true medical emergency.  To avoid this caesarean sections may be ordered for mother’s who would otherwise prefer a normal vaginal delivery.   The preventative goal of Oriental Medicine and breech presentations is to manually version  or “flip” the baby as early as possible resulting in a normal position within the uterus and forestalling further complications and/or surgery.
