Acupuncture for Pregnancy Related Discomforts or for Childbirth Preparation

The origin of acupuncture, a branch of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), pre-dates recorded history. It is a stimulation therapy that promotes the self-regulating process of the body. Acupuncture is a treatment regimen which gives you the opportunity to ease the discomforts associated with pregnancy without endangering your child. Pregnancy is not an illness-however, treatment is often difficult when women become sick during pregnancy. Most medications are taboo  as they could damage the fetus. Traditional home remedies are often not enough to treat discomforts during pregnancy.

Acupuncture offers mothers-to -be an effective treatment option with few side effects which can supplement conventional medicine. It is helpful during pregnancy-after consultation with your doctor-for the following indications:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Shoulder and neck tension
  • Pubic symphysis and back pain, sciatica
  • Heartburn
