Pregnancy in Balance - Breech, Transverse or Posterior Baby

This specialised treatment is appropriate from 32 weeks gestation to help create musculoskeletal alignment in the supporting muscles and ligaments of the thoracic and lumbar spine, ribcage and pelvic/uterine ligaments. This helps create a more symmetrical space within which your baby can attain optimal foetal positioning.

This massage treatment includes stimulating acupressure points +/- moxibustion to assist with baby's position. A PDF is emailed after the treatment with guidance and instruction on the use of moxibustion at home (where appropriate) and guidance in some spinning babies soft tissue balancing techniques to create balance, movement and gravity.

Birth in Balance

What better way to approach your baby's 'birth'day, than with our blissful balancing, nurturing and birth prep treatment.

This treatment is recommended from 38 weeks and focuses on creating musculo-skeletal alignment and balance. A combination of massage, acupressure and reflexology helps to create a symmetrical bowl for baby to access the pelvic inlet, align and rotate through mid-pelvis and make space in outlet pelvis.

Acupressure points may then be further stimulated with moxibustion to help to ‘awaken’ the body for labour.

Although this treatment is more 'stimulating' in nature, it is also very calming and nurturing and therefore helps reduce adrenalin and increase oxytocin.

INCLUDED IN THIS TREATMENT IS A BIRTH PREP KIT FOR HOME this contains moxa sticks, a PDF with specific spinning babies techniques, pelvic opening positions for labour and Guided Meditation and Birth Affirmation audio files.

A component of this treatment can be claimed as a Remedial Massage through private health.

For additional information and guidance in creating alignment and balance, movement and gravity and to assist your baby's position and journey towards a spontaneous labour and birth, our Ten 2 Zen Ebook: can provide you with these additional skills and techniques.  Learn more
