Healthy Mommy, Healthy Baby
Traditional Chinese medicine is a useful tool for women looking to enhance their fertility, alleviate the symptoms of pregnancy, induce labor, turn a breech baby and to nourish their body postpartum.
Acupuncture has little to no side effects, and it’s safe for you and your baby. Usually during a first visit the practitioner will ask you lots of questions about your main complaint as well as questions concerning your diet, sleeping patterns, and lifestyle. As a holistic medicine there is no separation between the mind and the body, therefore everything is taken into consideration before an illness can be diagnosed and treated. A typical treatment usually lasts about an hour and most people report feeling very relaxed or energized after treatment.
I have worked with woman in all stages of pregnancy, and have found acupuncture helps address all sort of things such as: nausea, fatigue, depression, anxiety, constipation, round ligament pain, sciatica, insomnia, acid reflux, anemia, congestion, hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
