Mother roasting is a treatment that can be a major factor in the growth of new mothers. Following birth, new mothers cease almost all self-care. They immediately have the duty to keep their newest bundle of joy healthy. In short, mothers deserve all the help they can get in making their transition process as seamless as possible. 

Mother roasting is a traditional treatment that gives the recovery process for mothers expedited results. This preserves the health of the mother by minimizing fatigue, depression, stress-induced anxiety, and insomniac tendencies. Additionally, it’s impactful that mothers are able to keep themselves on a self-care schedule. Otherwise, these healthy habits will quickly fall to the wayside.

Benefits of Mother Roasting

It keeps the body warm, nurtured, and nourished consistently. The treatment is relaxing and applied by one of our acupuncture specialists with ample experience in providing the treatment.

Our own acupuncturist Tina Ghahramani Singh recently posted her experience and expertise on moxibustion and mother roasting here:

“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. 

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. 

This postpartum phase is crucial to the health of the mother and sets the stage for the rest of her hormone health!


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 the entire uterus. 

Since we lose considerable blood after childbirth, we need to warm the uterus and build blood again to recover and make breast milk for the baby.

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.

Mother Roasting is so nourishing and relaxing! My postpartum mamas feel loved, and restored with 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.”
