Acupuncuture and PRegnancy
Pregnancy is an exciting, life changing experience that involves an extraordinary physical and emotional transformation. Taking care of one’s well-being during this time is important for both mother and baby. Acupuncture offers women a holistic drug free approach to support their pregnancy and birthing experience.
Whether it is the beginning of a young female’s reproductive years, the middle, when she may be considering her fertility, or the later stage where new symptoms may arise, Chinese Medicine offers an alternative approach.
Acupuncture and Fertility
By addressing each person as an individual, Chinese Medicine tailors each treatment to one’s personal needs. Acupuncture points are chosen based on meridian theory to remove blocks in the natural creation and movement of Qi. In doing so it brings balance back to the body’s natural hormonal rhythms. When the mind is calm, and there is an abundance of Qi and a healthy flow of blood, the body is at its optimal health to create a new life.
health and wellness and stress
By restoring the natural flow of Qi, acupuncture allows one to move more easily through thoughts and emotions and positively influences our body’s natural hormonal rhythm thereby addressing the various systems affected by the stress response.
Acupuncutre and pain
By inserting very fine needles into specific points, acupuncture removes these blockages, enabling Qi and blood to return to the area. This also maximizes the movement of the body's natural defenses to the injured area and in doing so, acupuncture not only relieves pain but also allows the body to heal.
