Acupressure for Labour and Birth
This class is currently being taught ONLINE in a live-taught, interactive format.
Join our us for this hands-on one hour class for you and your birth partner. Birth partners will learn and practice simple acupressure points that can be used during labour and delivery to help manage pain, calm the mind, and improve efficiency of labour. You will leave with practical skills as well as printed material for future reference.
One spot is good for two people – it is important to bring your birth partner.
Attendance at any of our pay-what-you-can informational talks entitles you to 15% off your first visit with any of our practitioners. This promo is for new patients only.
