Acupressure DVD

An instructional DVD for pregnant women and their support people with Debra Betts and Tom Kennedy

If you’re pregnant and looking for a better birth experience, at last there’s a professionally produced instructional DVD/download offering a detailed explanation of acupressure in labour for both you and your support people.

The acupressure methods outlined in the DVD are really easy to use, promote natural birth and encourage close partner involvement. As a mum-to-be you need to know that acupressure is safe. Unlike acupuncture where needles are used, acupressure applies physical pressure to specific acupressure points using the thumbs, fingers, hands, elbows, or with various other devices on the surface of the body. Acupressure may also control pain during child birth and support your body as it proceeds towards labour: Your baby too can derive many benefits from acupressure. For example, it can encourage the baby into the most optimal position for birth.

The Acupressure for Natural Pain Relief in Labour DVD also includes testimonials from women and their partners who have used the techniques and comes with an illustrated 16 page booklet reminding you of the points and their application.

NB: All the Acupressure techniques are fully demonstrated on the DVD and are ideal for pregnant women and their birth partners, practitioners of acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu and massage, doulas, midwives as well as birth helpers.

Contents include:

  • Information about Acupressure, using Acupressure appropriately
  • Advice for support people
  • How to find the eight acupressure points covered in the DVD, and using the points effectively
  • Baby in breech or posterior position and failure to progress

Running time: 34 minutes with a recomended retail price of RRP £17.99 UK and $24.99 US.
