Breastfeeding Help with a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC)
Having trouble with breast feeding? looking for an alternative to bottle feeding? Can't get a good latch no matter what you try? Suspect a tongue tie? Rebecca is a Certified Lactation Consultant and has a passion for helping new mothers with their breast feeding questions. Her own troubles with an undiagnosed tongue tie in her infant son inspired her to pursue a way to help others with feeding issues. Individual breastfeeding support is available as part of a care package, but also on a per appointment basis.
Rebecca became interested in belly binding as a way to support post partim mothers and their bodies recover from child birth. This can be incorporated into prenatal and post natal care packages.
Arvigo® Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs of both men and women, as well as many common digestive disorders. The techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph and nerves in the abdomen. They address and can release emotional and energetic tension from the abdomen. This assists to prevent the progression of chronic disease symptomology while improving the body’s ability to relf repair and balance.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® support and enhance health and wellness throughout the life cycle for women, men, and children.
Arvigo® practitioners around the world have repeatedly found that their clients experience significantly shorter and easier labors.
