ACUPUNCTURE HOME VISITS
A home visit involves me coming to you for on call acupuncture support, based upon my availability. This option is especially useful for laboring women, postpartum women, and those who are unable to come to the wellness center. In the event that I am unable to come to you, I will do my best to find a colleague who can. Typically this service is a flat rate of $150/hour for visits in Minneapolis and St. Paul. I welcome inquires 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to come see you at the hospital, at a birthing center, or at home.
For laboring women, acupuncture treatments can be extremely helpful for the following conditions: optimal fetal positioning, pain management, fatigue, assisting in sleep, encouraging contractions to increase in intensity and duration, promoting the flow of oxytocin, and honoring the physiological experience of birth. I have attended many births as an acupuncturist and am honored each and every time. I also am very interested in hearing what the birthing outcomes look like. I am pleased to say that many of the births I have attended have resulted in vaginal births! Because I am also a birth and postpartum doula, my experience gives me the needed confidence to be at home when attending births. I look forward to attending many more births as an acupuncturist!
Although births are the most common places I attend doing on call acupuncture support, I travel to treat anyone who may benefit from my services. Please call me at 612.240.3883 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your needs.
