Moxibustion is an ancient Chinese treatment that uses burning fragrant herbs over acupuncture points using small Moxa herb sticks that heat up.
Certain health conditions respond far better to moxibustion than just acupuncture on its own. The heat from the moxa stick radiates into the acupuncture point where normally a needle would be inserted. Moxibustion is a completely safe and natural treatment.
Moxibustion for breach babies
Moxibustion is a proven technique for turning a breach baby. By stimulating certain points with a moxa stick the uterine muscles can be made to relax and thereby allowing the baby to turn. The best results are achieved at around 34-35 weeks where there is still sufficient space for the baby to move around. However I have had babies successfully turn at 38 weeks.
