Taught by Dr. Claudia Citkowitz, Ph.D., L.Ac.

JTS is pleased to announce our Acupressure and Acupuncture for Perinatal Care with Claudia Citkowitz has been moved to a livestream classroom event. We are heavily discounting this event so that this important content is available at an affordable rate. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a leading expert in the field! Registration now open!

This course for acupuncturists and perinatal care providers introduces a toolkit of bodywork, auricular and acupuncture approaches for use in pregnancy, during birth, and postpartum, from simple exercises and acupressure that can be taught to family members, to specialized perinatal support, ear acupressure seeds, discussion of body needles that can be securely taped, and other treatments for difficult cases. Participants will learn how to determine the best treatments for their patients by understanding better the mechanisms at play during the course of a pregnancy. 15 NCCAOM PDAs pending.
