Welcome to  Motherhood

Congratulation and Welcome to the Parent Tribe!

I am here to honor you! 

To support you!

To share with you the beautiful and rich wisdom that has been caring and nourishing mothers for thousands of years. 

In Chinese Medicine the postpartum period begins with the Golden Month or the Essential Month and it is considered to be one of the most precious of times in a woman's life. 


Giving birth is no small thing! Pregnancy and delivery requires a tremendous amount of physical and emotional resources.  Now settling back home to care for this beautiful life you have created, your health & well being is more important than ever.  It's true, Happy mommies-Happy babies, as the health of your baby relies fundamentally on your health.  Taking preemptive action before birth and after can make the transition to parenthood or a growing family a smoother one.    


Acupuncture and herbs are a phenomenal way to nourish and support your body, mind and soul back to balance.  The goals of after birth treatments are to help with any immediate issues that may arise directly from the birth process such as uterine bleeding, afterpains, hemorrhoids and fatigue.  Other treatments can focus on stabilizing hormonal fluctuations, reduce stress, encourage healthy milk supply and replenish energy levels to foster natural healing. 


One very special treatment called Mother-Warming is given for the first couple of weeks after labor to promote general recovery.  This gentle method is done by warming up the lower abdomen & back with a Moxabushtion (Moxa) technique.  Moxa is a form of heat treatment that stimulates specific areas or points on the body to promote healing.
