Acupressure for labor pain relief is great way for pregnant Moms-to-be to receive relief from the pains of labor; especially if it is applied as soon as the "true" contractions start. What's even better is that Dads-to-be can learn the pressure points and use them to be helpful and proactive with the birthing process as well.
Labor pains aside, pressure point therapy is also helpful for other aspects of your pregnancy:
- nausea/morning sickness
- back pain
Caution: Do not attempt certain point techniques without consulting your acupuncturist, especially if you are not near your estimated due date.
