Traditional Chinese Medicine Encapsulation
Softer, Nurtring Energy
The signature of this method is the steaming step. In TCM theory, the process of labour and birth leaves a lot of open, empty space, which is considered very yin, or cold. Therefore, one major way we can promote healing during the postpartum period is to add yang energy via heat. Raw placenta is considered extremely cold, and therefore inappropriate for extended use during the first few months after birth. We therefore incorporate steam and warming herbs into the remedy, and the final result is warming, tonifying, and nourishing for the postpartum. This method also has been encouraged for postpartum, depression or concerned stress levels with mother.
The Raw method is often used for clients who adhere to a Raw diet, which is based around the idea that heat destroys vital enzymes in food. In the case of Raw placenta encapsulation, some argue that the Raw method also yields a medicine with more hormones and nutrients than the TCMI method. This is not to say one method is better than the other, just that you have several options for encapsulation and should choose the method that best suits your needs and preferences.
Tincture ( Mum & Baby )
Putting part of your placenta in tincture form is another way to stretch out its longevity. A small portion of placenta is added to >100 proof alcohol and set to ferment for six weeks. Some of the benefits include hormone stabilization in your postpartum cycles, less bleeding during those cycles, energy and for menopause years down the road. The tincture can be used in any time of trauma, transition and emotional distress. The female child can also benefit from placental tincture once she begins her menstruation cycles. Tinctures, when stored properly last indefinitely. They are created with alcohol and presented to you in an amber dropper bottle. Tinctures will be delivered in 6 weeks.
Gentle Bodywork for Postpartum
Bowtech does not use forceful manipulation. Gentle subtle moves are performed over the muscles and connective tissue, sending messages deep into the body. This may help with a relaxed, balanced way of wellbeing.
The technique may access not only the musculo-skeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves and internal organs. The body’s integrated response may assist in supporting healthy circulation and normallymphatic drainage and potentially support in the assimilation of nutrients and elimination of toxins.
