Acupressure For Labour In Norwich
One-to-one acupressure training for the birthing woman and her birth partner with Rebecca Geanty, will give you and your partner the tools to help you have a happy relaxing birth therefore potentially lessening the need for pain relief and medical interventions.
You will learn a set of acu-points that you and your partner can use to assist the natural process of labour.
With research reporting acupressure reduced the incidence of caesarean sections.(1) Acupressure has also been reported to significantly reduce the need for epidurals and caesarean sections when used as part of a complementary antenatal intervention. (2)
Your birth partner does not need to be good at massage. They just need to follow your feedback to apply firm continuous pressure you find comfortable.
Cost: £80 for 2 hours
“My husband Doug used the back pressure points that we had learnt in the workshop, and I used the hand/thumb point at the start of each contraction and had brilliant results. They instantly took the edge off, reducing pain significantly. This then gave me the chance to get my breathing under control which I couldn’t do without the acupressure. We both were relieved and comforted to have something “to do”... We would highly recommend it.”
Amy and Doug (and baby Lily).

Treat’s founder and proprietor Rebecca works as a registered Traditional Acupuncturist, specialising in natural fertility for men and women. With over eleven years experience running her own practice and a BsC (Hons) from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) she has helped countless patients with a variety of mental, emotional and physical conditions.
In 2010 Rebecca created Norwich Acupuncture Rooms at The Orange Grove Clinic as a way of making acupuncture more accessible and affordable to a wide range of people. In China acupuncture is a very common practice and recommended weekly to begin with for effective treatment. Rebecca’s goal was to replicate this in the Western world with the multi-bed setting to allow patients the option of weekly treatment at a more affordable price.
A year later Rebecca also set up the Acupuncture Childbirth Team for East Anglia (ACT), which acts as an acupuncture network for other practitioners to share and learn information on natural birth techniques and pregnancy-related complaints.
Rebecca’s latest passion is treat – a unique holistic clinic where the practitioners all strive to work together for the people of Norwich; combining their skills and knowledge in providing one-to-one care and group sessions/workshops, which empower and educate people to reach a state of well-being and contentment. Norwich Acupuncture Rooms is now an integral part of treat-norwich Complementary Health Clinic.
