Acupuncture

Pregnancy

Once pregnant, there are a number of symptoms that come along with carrying a child. A few of the more uncomfortable ones are:

•  Nausea and/or Vomiting
•  IndigestionPrenatal and Postpartum Acupuncture
•  Constipation
•  Back pain
•  Leg pain
•  Hemorrhoids
•  Insomnia
•  Anxiety/Depression
•  Sinusitis
•  Itching
•  Hypertension
•  Edema
•  Spotting

Acupuncture has been very successful in helping to reduce or even eliminate these symptoms. Regular acupuncture treatment can help create a more comfortable and harmonious pregnancy.

Breech babies

  • Acupuncture is known to be very successful in turning breech babies.
  • Acupuncture is most successful if the treatment begins at week 34.
  • The later the treatment is initiated, the less successful the treatment, especially if done after week 38.
  • This is due to the baby getting larger and having less room for the baby to turn.

Preparing for Birth

baby in womb

  • When a woman reaches 36-37 weeks, pre-birth acupuncture is begun.
  • This treatment is done weekly to help the woman prepare for birth.
  • Research has showed the first time labor was reduced from 8 hours to 6.5 in a clinically controlled study.
  • It has also been reported that women who receive acupuncture before birth are less likely to need medical intervention

Induction

  • There are many reasons in the western medical world to schedule an induction.
  • For women who are at or past their due date and would like to go into labor on their own,  acupuncture can help.
  • Typically the woman is seen every day for 3 days prior to the medically scheduled induction.

Post Partum

It is a wonderful feeling to finally meet your new baby, but the post partum period is not always comfortable. After birth, your body goes through big changes in a short time. During the birth, you lost blood and fluids. After birth, you will continue to lose these fluids as your body starts to contract back towards a non-pregnant shape.

In addition, your breasts will begin their milk production. You will lose sleep and likely feel hypersensitive to emotions and those around you. This is all normal, and acupuncture can help ease this transition. It has been shown to help the following conditions:

• Persistent uttering bleeding
• Afterpains
• Night sweats
• Perineal discomfort
• Breast feeding problems
• Insufficient lactation
• Mastitis
• Post partum depression

Acupuncture and Assisted Fertilityacupuncture infertility

  • Acupuncture has been very successful in helping clients undergoing UIU or IVF get pregnant.
  • In various studies, Acupuncture has shown to increase the implantation rate in IVF by 15-20%.
  • For IVF, ideally treatment occurs twice a week for 4 weeks leading up to the transfer.
  • These treatments help to increase uterine blood flow.
  • Then acupuncture should be received (preferably at the place of transfer) immediately preceding and after the transfer.
  • If it is not possible to begin treatment 4 weeks before hand, acupuncture can still increase success rates on the day of the transfer.

Suffering from chronic illness?

Acupuncture Pregnancy

Plagued by chronic health problems?

Feel debilitated from pain?

Looking for a non-surgical, alternative solution?

Acupuncture can help you.

With the right approach, acupuncture stimulates the body’s innate healing abilities. Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world used to prevent and treat a wide range of diseases.

It is based on the concept that disease results from disruption in the flow of Qi (energy) and imbalance in the forces of yin and yang.

Acupuncture works to remove blockages and balance the flow of Qi (energy) by inserting thin needles into meridian points along the body.

Other methods such as cupping, Gua Sha, electro-stimulation and moxabustion may be used in addition to Acupuncture. Acupuncture treatments will promote wellbeing, alleviate pain, improve circulation and improve the immune system.

This allows for greater peace of mind and more balanced health without harmful side effects.

BodyTalk

Acupuncture without needles, BodyTalk is an astonishingly simple and effective holistic therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended.

Each system, cell, and atom is in constant communication with each other at all times. Through exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, however, these lines of communication can become compromised or disconnected, which then leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being.

Reconnecting these lines of communication enables the body’s internal mechanisms to function at optimal levels, thus repairing and preventing disease while rapidly accelerating the healing process. In this way, BodyTalk stimulates the body’s innate ability to balance and heal itself on all levels

$75.00 per session.
