Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is an ultra-light rhythmical massage techinque that  simulates the body’s natural lymphatic process, flushing out excess fluids and toxins and can be incorporated after the first three months of pregnancy until the moment of birth. If you’re suffering from uncomfortable swelling in your hands, feet or legs, as long as pre-eclampsia is not a factor, MLD ( manual lymphatic drainage)  can but incorporated to address water retention issues, swollen legs and ankles during pregnancy.

Post partum MLD can be used to boost mom’s immune system, to help her experience total relaxation and increase her overall well being. The prenatal lymphatic drainage helps blood circulation that is affected by the weight of the fetus. To improve blood circulation, blood travels through the oxygenated body of the pregnant woman which boosts the immune system, naturally protecting against diseases.

LABOR INDUCTION

Our Labor Induction treatment is for those moms who are at or beyond the 40-week mark and  have  babies that want to stay put.  Due dates are, of course, just estimates, but overdue or post term pregnancies can leave exhausted moms-to-be  stressed out and considering ways to induce.

Many post-term pregnant women will look for alternative approaches to help induce labor if they want to avoid medical induction and one popular method acupressure. Our custom labor induction protocol uses acupressure to stimulate the uterus to begin the labor process without the use drugs or other medical techniques.

Benefits of Labor Induction may be:

  • Stimulate labor without having to use drugs or other medical techniques.
  • Acupressure might increase blood flow to the uterus.
  • Influence hormonal responses.
  • Stimulate uterine contractions.

*Please note– Every mother is different and their bodies will respond in differently.  Like anything in life there is no guarantee labor will begin immediately upon receiving the treatment.   Some women will respond immediately while others will experience the labor signs within 1 to 4 days,  results may vary.
