HOMEOPATHY

 

Homeopathy is a centuries-old medical science, which uses the natural healing properties of plants and minerals to create non-addictive remedies with no dangerous side effects.

Homeopathic remedies are ideal to use during pregnancy, when you may not want to use other conventional drugs. Although we are not physicians, we have decades of experience and success treating many pregnancy and birth related issues with these remedies.

AROMATHERAPY

Aromatherapy uses natural plant oils to improve your psychological and physical well being. When utilized during your pregnancy, these essential oils can help alleviate many discomforts: from nausea to vomiting, edema, insomnia and stress.

Essential oils also can be added to your massage lotion to promote deeper relaxation on the massage table … or rubbed into the skin of  your belly to help bring on labor contraction.

To ensure your wellbeing, we are proud to use the highest quality pharmaceutical-grade aromatherapy oils available, including a large selection by doTerra.

ACUPRESSURE

 

Acupressure treatment involves applying direct and firm pressure to specific points along the acupuncture meridians in the body. It often produces a pleasant sensation or noticeable effect, which dissipates after treatment ends.

By stimulating these points, we can prompt your body to work more efficiently. In turn, this can promote the release of endorphins, block the brain’s pain receptors, dilate the cervix and increase the efficiency of your contractions.

When used during labor, some woman are able to find clarity and provide helpful feedback to their support team. As you can imagine, this is quite helpful for everyone involved.
