Birth Basics: Acupressure, Acupuncture and Chinese Medical Diagnosis in Birth


  • Sun Acupuncture Clinic 10912 Greenbrier Road Hopkins, MN, 55305 United States (map)

In this class, students learn to recognize the familiar faces of yin and yang throughout the course of labor and delivery.

Using a clinical problem-solving approach, students learn to apply the Chinese medicine skills they already have, to provide effective support during labor. Specific needling and tui na hand techniques are introduced as well as labor preparation treatments, and moxa for breech. The skills taught in this course do not substitute for midwifery training, and the course addresses but does not remove the malpractice insurance and credentialing matters that need to be addressed to needle professionally in a hospital.
