EAr acupressure

Auriculotherapy or Ear Acupressure is a form of non-needle alternative modality based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem reflecting the entire body, represented on the auricle of the outer portion of the ear.  The acupressure of specific points with small statelessness balls will continue the therapy for several days allowing time for the body to balance.  

 

Acupressure promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and opens up blocked channels within the body called meridians. The meridians are associated with the Central Nervous System, all of the organs and areas of the body.  After having a baby your nervous system is on high alert.  The lack of sleep and loss of sleep rhythm exacerbates anxious, alert, and worried feelings.  The nervous system may be calmed with the use of ear acupressure allowing for a sense of calm in the body and mind.

“Vaginal steaming--an ancient women’s health practice that involves sitting over warm steaming herbs--is found in many places throughout the world. Current research finds that it is a traditional practice in, at least, 28 countries worldwide. Although steaming varies from place to place it is universally used after giving birth. Most often administered by midwives, the popularity of postpartum steaming isn’t without good reason. In the United States postpartum care is minimal. It often involves 24-hours or less at the hospital and then a standard 6-week checkup. In that 6-week time period the mom does not receive any medical assistance with recovery. During this time her body is tasked with closing the vaginal canal and cervix; her uterus is to clear out all of the leftover lochia (pregnancy matter) and reduce down to its normal size; her abdominal organs return into place allowing her elimination functions (urine and bowel movements) to normalize; delivery tears and stitches (if any) have to heal; the abdominal skin is to retract and the leftover pregnancy weight is supposed to shed. Common complications include postpartum contractions, painful stitches or an infection. Needless to say, recovery can be daunting, especially when moms do not receive much instruction on what recovery entails or how to help along the process. In many cases, full recovery never happens. According to acupuncturists Daoshing Ni and Jessica Chen in Sitting Moon: A Guide to Natural Rejuvenation After Pregnancy a significant amount of women’s health concerns including depression, headaches, prolapsed organs, incontinence and menstrual complications occur because of improper postpartum care. Considering the minimal attention mom’s receive after hospital births, it’s pretty significant to discover that vaginal steaming is a postpartum treatment that’s been used worldwide for ages. Commonly administered by midwives, the practice of steaming appears to have fallen into obscurity as male doctors took over an area of medicine historically attended to by females.”
