Labor Induction

Acupuncture offers significant benefits in inducing labor for both women over 37 years old and younger women.

For older women, acupuncture can help address potential challenges related to the labor process due to age, such as decreased uterine efficiency or increased pelvic tissue rigidity.

 On the other hand, for younger women, acupuncture can serve as a natural option to promote the onset of labor in a gentle and effective manner.

Mother and Baby

 Based on my experience, the treatment protocol outlined below has proven to be successful:


  • Week 34-35: During this period, our focus is on gently relaxing the lower back and hips while mentally preparing for childbirth. Acupuncture sessions are accompanied by meditation to enhance relaxation. If the baby is in a breech position, I provide interventions to guide the baby into the correct position.

Acupuncture Protocol for Smooth Labor Experience


I recommend acupuncture sessions 1-2 times per week. In cases of breech presentation, we suggest acupuncture and moxibustion sessions 3 times per week, along with guidance on exercises and the use of moxibustion at home.

  • Week 36-37: As the due date approaches, the goal is to open the sacrum, lower back, and hips to facilitate the baby's descent. I employ relaxation techniques, including visualization, to prepare the mind and body for labor. I recommend increasing acupuncture sessions to 2 times per week, with 3 sessions per week recommended for breech presentation cases.

  • Week 38-40: In the final weeks of pregnancy, our focus shifts to stimulating relaxation in the pelvic girdle and encouraging the baby to descend further. Acupuncture sessions are intensified to 2-3 times per week to enhance circulation and stimulate uterine contractions, thereby aiding in the natural onset of labor.


In conclusion, acupuncture offers a holistic approach to preparing the body for childbirth, catering to the specific needs of women of all ages. With a focus on relaxation, stimulation, and guidance, the treatment protocol has been proven effective in promoting a smooth and natural labor process.
