  • Heartburn
  • Headaches/neck pain
  • Low back, sciatica or hip pain

Treatments to Promote Optimal Positioning of the Baby

Breech, transverse, and oblique positions are commonly addressed during the later stages of pregnancy between 34-37 weeks.

Only the baby can find the best position, but by creating a more ideal environment through TCM therapies, a baby in the wrong position may settle into the right place.

Many studies support the use of moxibustion to encourage optimal position of the baby. By warming and nourishing the body to reduce stagnation, acupuncture, bodywork, and moxibustion can cause a very positive reaction.
