Conplementary and Alternative Medicine in Breastfeeding Therapy

Time-frame: 60
CERP: no

Integrative medicine blends conventional medicine with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). In this presentation, Nikki discusses the history of the schism between the two, the importance of energy in healing, and uses current evidence to underscore the value of CAM in breastfeeding work. She can show how different modalities may be effective in treating clinical situations: infant colic, and maternal mastitis, bleb and breast pain. She can integrate audience activities into the discussions of craniosacral therapy, aromatherapy, and energy. In-depth discussions and case histories are offered about acupuncture, aromatherapy, craniosacral therapy, homeopathy, and massage (infant and maternal).
