Acupressure During Labor and Birth

Come learn simple acupressure and moxabustion techniques that can help get you, your baby, your body, and your birth partner prepared for your labor!

Dana Balassi sitting in front of Dragonfly Holistic Healing in Fremont, Seattle, Washington

Acupressure and moxabustion can help your baby find the best position for labor, as well as prepare the mother’s body for labor. Acupressure is also a great method for helping to reduce pain during contractions, promote efficient labor, shorten the first stage of labor and address many common conditions that can arise during labor.

We will learn Qigong self-massage, view Debra Bett’s Acupressure for Pain Relief During Labor DVD and have hands on practice. All couples and Birth Partners are welcome.
