Breech Baby

If you have found out that your baby is in a breech position, and you are over 34 weeks, consider using moxibustion at the acupuncture point called BL67 or 'Zhuyin' 

Simply book in for a session in the maternity clinic and your practitioner will give you a supply of moxa sticks, explain how to do the treatment and also check that it is safe for you to go ahead.

Pre-birth treatments

Giving birth is one of the biggest events in most womens lives. We encourage women to have weekly 'pre-birth' treatments from 36+ weeks to prepare. This usually involves weekly treatments up until birth, unless more frequent treatments are needed for other pregnancy related conditions. If women choose to pay in advance, and cannot use all their treatments due to going into labour, they can be used up until 6 weeks post partum.
