Acupuncture

 
 

Chinese Medicine is a complete system of medicine that developed over thousands of years. It includes acupuncture, Chinese herbs, food therapy, tui na massage and qi exercises such as tai chi and qi gong.

Acupuncture treatment is very relaxing as the body releases endorphins in response to treatment.

For many cases, we will recommend two or more types of treatment to resolve your condition from all necessary angles.

Labor Induction with Acupuncture

Acupuncture for labor induction is safe for both the mother and baby as long as there are no serious complications with the pregnancy.  We recommend visiting once per week starting week 36 to prepare your body. Several studies show a success rate of over 70%.

We have done an extensive amount of labor induction acupuncture at Blue Sky.  We find that it gives moms a chance to relax and to ask questions about their symptoms.  We've also generally found that when women get a series of appointments leading up to their labor, they report back an easier or faster labor experience.

We do offer a new client labor induction package of $240 for your first three visits.  (Save $60.)

Patient policies:

Please arrive early to display your insurance card, do any paperwork, and settle into the space.

Please note that we have limited buffer time between appointments, so if you are running late, it may effect the overall length of your massage.  

We do charge a $25 fee for appointments cancelled within 48 hours of the appointment time.  If you'd like to avoid that fee, you are welcome to send someone in your place.

We charge this fee because last minute cancellations affect our providers' ability to earn an income.  We do make exceptions in emergencies, but otherwise please plan on respecting this policy.
