Moxibustion Turns Breech Babies

A systematic review including 6 randomised controlled trials and a total of 1,087 pregnant women that assessed moxibustion for breech presentation.

The rate of cephalic version among the moxibustion group was 72.5% versus 53.2% in the control group (relative risk, 1.36; 95% CI 1.17-1.58).

In terms of safety, no significant differences were found in the comparison of moxibustion with other techniques.

The reviewers concluded that moxibustion at acupuncture point BL67 has been shown to produce a positive effect, whether used alone or in combination with acupuncture or postural measures, in comparison with observation or postural methods alone, for the correction of breech presentation.
