Natural labor induction technique utilizing acupuncture and electronic stimulation. This is best suited for women 38+ weeks pregnant, and typically works best when 2 sessions within a few days apart are booked. How Does It Work? There are several techniques that work, including needling therapy (acupuncture), direct pressure on acupuncture points (acupressure), and electronic stimulation. To induce labor, Joanne uses a set of points that stimulate the uterus. These points will help establish contractions and promote dilation of the cervix. A low frequency electronic stimulation can be added to the acupuncture needles to deliver consistent stimulation, thus enhancing the overall treatment. Who Is A Good Candidate For Labor Induction? A good candidate is any woman who is very close to their estimated due date, or even post-date. You can start inducing labor about one week before your due date, or any day past 40 weeks. If you are scheduled for labor induction at the hospital, but would prefer to start labor naturally, you can come in for labor induction with acupuncture before your appointment for a session. You will be instructed on how to practice acupressure at home on your own and with your partner to increase your opportunity for a successful natural induction.
Please allow 24 hours for any cancellation. If the cancellation occurs within 24 hours of your session, a $40 fee will be applied to your account. For all no-call, no-show appointments, the full fee will be required. Thank you for your consideration!
