Prenatal Bodywork

Prenatal Bodywork

At Praxis, we offer several natural, drug-free treatment methods for expectant moms, including prenatal chiropractic and acupuncture. These holistic therapies can help relieve low back pain, pelvic pain, headaches, and psychological stress. They include acupuncture protocols for morning sickness and cervical ripening in preparation for labor, as well as Webster technique—a chiropractic approach to align the pelvis and decrease tension on uterine ligaments to allow freedom of movement.

Dr. Willetts has received post-graduate training from the British Medical Acupuncture Society in the use of safe medical acupuncture during pregnancy, and she is certified in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic through Logan University. She uses gentle, low-force chiropractic techniques on a special treatment table that has a break-away abdominal piece to allow pregnant women to lie face down comfortably.
