A Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Clinic
Moxibustion & Acupuncture for Breech Presentation
Acupuncture and moxibustion therapy can be very effective to help turn a single breech. The treatments
are safe to both mother and child. Needles are never placed in the abdomen but may be placed on your
legs, hands, ears or feet. In our 30 years practice, the highest success rate occurs when patients come in
ASAP after breech diagnosis, preferably around 32 to 34 weeks of gestation. Once the mother has
reached 38 weeks the success rate reduces because the baby’s growth does not leave much room to turn.
In general, we recommend 2 to 3 treatments weekly for at least two weeks, as well as using moxa therapy
at home 2 times daily.
