Acupuncturist, Tina Singh has outlined details about this beautiful treatment below.  I experienced a mother roasting with Tina and I highly recommend it...whether you are a few weeks or a few years postpartum!  It's never too late

"As an Acupuncturist and Herbalist, I offer this amazing postpartum treatment called “Mother Roasting,” signifying warming the mother’s uterus and body after giving birth.

What Is Mother Roasting?
In Chinese Medicine Mother Roasting, or “zuo yuezi,” is a traditional treatment
to promote recovery after childbirth. It closes the gates of birth that have been
opened, repelling Wind and Cold from the uterus, and nourishing the Blood and
Qi of the mother.

Why Is Mother Roasting Beneficial?
This postpartum phase is crucial to the health of the mother and sets the stage
for the rest of her hormone health!
Since we loose considerable blood after childbirth, we need to warm the uterus
and build blood again to recover and make breast milk for the baby.
Mother Roasting is so nourishing and relaxing! My postpartum mama’s feel
loved, and restored with Mother Roasting

How does it Work?
Mother roasting is applied with special hand rolled rice grain Moxa otherwise
known as Artemisia, and a bamboo tube. The moxa Warms the back of the body and entire uterus.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called
"moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin.
The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel
certain pathogenic influences.

When Should I Receive Mother Roasting?
I offer this sacred treatment in the comfort of their own home about 2-3 weeks
postpartum. However, you can receive this treatment during the fourth
trimester or several months after delivery. It’s beneficial for a Women’s body at
any given time after having her baby.
