Acupressure for Labour Registration


Instructor - Harris is a Doctor of Chinese medicine at the Elements of Health Centre in Victoria. He has been in clinical practice for the past 12 years with a focus in reproductive health and obstetric care. He is an active member of the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and is a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM).

Melding classical philosophy, clinical experience and modern research, Harris aims to equip workshop participants with a deep sense of confidence and competence in applying the skills that they will learn. He has presented this course to doctors, midwives and doulas, as well as having his own first hand experience of how effective these points can be. His son arrived in a very punctual manner, half an hour before his due date and only five hours after starting the acupressure points. (More on this and maybe the odd dad joke during the workshop).
