Mother Roasting

In TCM theory, the mother to be's body is working harder to produce extra blood and qi to nourish the baby and mother.  Thus a woman isn’t only recovering from childbirth but the deplete of nourishing baby during nine months of pregnancy.  In Eastern traditions, mothers are honored 30- 100 days for a  restorative period to rest and replenish their energy, qi and blood lossed during pregnancy and childbirth.   

Mother Roasting  is a warming moxibustion treatment that is given to women ideally 4-14 days following birth. The treatment involves the gentle warming of the acupuncture points and region that run through the lower abdomen and lower back. The points and uterus region are warmed using moxa.  Moxa is a Chinese herb called mugwort.  The therapeutic function of  moxibustion is to increase the both blood and qi circulation into the uterus and pelvic region for faster healing and recovery. 

At Lotus Acupuncture, we provide home post natal visit to nurture mother during a joyful yet a difficult period.
