Traditional Acupuncture Stimulates Movement of Baby In Utero

30 weeks pregnant Andrea came to clinic last week reporting the bub in her tum had moved significantly during a flight (1hr) earlier in the week.

She then conferred with her Gynecologist who confirmed that the bub had in fact turned and was now in less than perfect position in utero.

Her Gynecologist was very clear in her communication, that if bub’s position in utero remain unchanged then some level of medical intervention might be required to expedite delivery.

The judicious application of 12 strongish cones of tonetskyu (rice grain moxa) to Bl.67 had Andrea confirming that bub was moving even as we treated her.

A week later she came back for a follow up treatment and reported that the position of the bub felt a lot more comfortable and everything seemed in it’s rightful place.

Certainly not the only time that such an outcome has been the result of appropriate treatment but the most recent, for sure.

Traditional Acupuncture is definitely an amazing medical art and it can fun and rewarding to practice.

Hope all is well with you and yours,
