An Integrative Guide for Acepuncturists and Birth Professionals

Opis książki

For acupuncturists and birth professionals, this book explains how yin/yang and other principles of Chinese medicine can improve birth experiences as well as outcomes. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can shift and support the physical and emotional journey of birth and provide nonpharmacologic treatment approaches for commonly occurring disorders of labor such as malposition, asynclitism, slow cervical dilatation and inadequate contractions, as well as postpartum and post C-section care.

Accessible and engaging, the book includes an overview of Chinese medicine for women's health; information on what happens before, during and after birth from both a biomedical and Chinese medical perspective;and a toolkit of treatment strategies for birth work. The techniques described include acupressure, Tui Na (Chinese medical bodywork), needling, auricular acupressure and electrostimulation.

'Given that the world of Chinese medicine can seem a bit mystical and be quite mystifying, and the world of western medicine can be incomplete in its ability to address medical issues, Claudia Citkovitz's text is a complete breath of fresh air. Right away, before she even gets going on the actual book, she is giving useful, practical information. In the introduction she writes "I have compiled the list below of "low-hanging fruit." These are acupressure and other EAM techniques that can easily be applied in the moment, or taught to birth team members, without having to read the whole book." This is followed by a list of super easy to learn and fantastically effective techniques to improve labor. Of course, this just makes one want to read the book!'                                                                                                                                              - Sharon Weizenbaum Lic. Ac., Dipl CH

'Claudia Citkovitz combines extensive experience in obstetric medicine with a deep knowledge of East Asian Medicine and the result is a fascinating and practical book, which offers unique insight into the physiology and psychology of labor and delivery and explains how to support all stages of the birth journey, naturally and effectively. A must read for birth professionals of all disciplines.'                                                    - Jill Blakeway DACM, L.Ac. Author of Making Babies: A Proven Three Month Program for Maximum Fertility, Sex Again: Recharge Your Libido and Energy Medicine: The Science and Mystery of Healing
