If you’re a midwife, student midwife, doula or a reflexologist, then please read on to find out more about our acupressure 1-day workshop.This one day workshop is a combination of theory, research and practical on the use of 8 acupressure points that can be used safely during pregnancy, labour and postnatal period. 

Research published in western medical journals such as Complementary Therapies in Medicine and The Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health conclude that acupressure is a safe, non-invasive, non pharmacological method of reducing - dysmenorrhea, nausea in pregnancy, and pain in labour. These studies will be examined; detailing the acupressure points and methods used to produce these results. The role of the partner and support persons to use these points is discussed. 

The afternoon session provides a practical hands-on session that involves locating 8 acupressure points. Along with written information and diagrams, time is allocated for all participants to demonstrate that they are able to locate the points accurately on each other. Using acupressure for specific problems:
