Did you know acupuncture and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) can be used during pregnancy? Practitioners access specific acupuncture points to balance the body’s meridian and organ system to help you feel your best. Regular treatments during this time can help with a number of common symptoms and help prepare your body for the birthing process.
Some of the things acupuncture can help with are:
Digestive issues like heartburn and nausea
Pain such as back pain, headaches, rib pain and round ligament pain
Emotional issues like stress, anxiety and depression.
Acupuncture could also help with more serious issues during pregnancy such as breech babies and placenta previa. There are also treatments acupuncturists can provide in the last month of pregnancy to prepare your body for the birthing process.
Acupuncture and TCM provide a safe way to nurture your body and optimize health before, during and after your pregnancy. If you are interested in finding out more information or setting up and appointment contact me today!
