Natural way to flip breech baby?

 I am 36 weeks preggo and baby is in a Frank breech position.  I have tried everything I can possibly think of to get him flipped: inversion exercises 3x+ a day, hand stands in pool, flip turns in pool while swimming, peppermint oil and ice pack on top of belly, and I just went to Chiro (1st visit) yesterday (next visit is sat).  It doesn't feel like he has flipped yet.  My 1st child came early at 38 weeks and I am assuming he will not make it all the way to 40 weeks (he's my 2nd), plus I am very active so I'd be surprised if he made it all the way to 40.  Anyways, is there anything else I could be doing to help get him turned that might've worked for other moms?  Help I do not want to get a C-section, trying to do this all natural this go around!

Just for reassurance, babies can turn at any time.  They are never too big to turn.  My son literally flipped every other day for the last 3 weeks.  He was born at 39 weeks, 6 days and 10 lb.

The Bradley Method realigns the pelvis so that the uterus is not twisted. This gives the baby more room to turn by herself.
