Acupuncture: Making a difference from pregnancy to postpartum
Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to help women achieve optimum health throughout the reproductive spectrum.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are part of a comprehensive system of healing which originated in China over 2,500 yrs ago. It is the second oldest continuously practiced medical system in the world. Pain or illness arises when our vital life force does not circulate freely. Acupuncture helps restore health and balance without the use of drugs or surgery.
How can acupuncture help?

Enhances fertility to those women looking to become pregnant
Improves energy and facilitates emotional and physical healing during the postpartum period
Acupuncture and Gynecological Disorders
Gynecological disorders such as endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, infertility and recurrent miscarriages are often successfully treated using acupuncture. It is wonderful for helping pregnant women through their 40 weeks with symptoms such as back pain, nausea, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, and labor preparation.
Acupuncture uses sterile, very fine needles inserted into points along channels to stimulate the flow of Qi, our vital life force. This sends impulses to the brain to improve the functioning of our physical and emotional health. Such improvements help bring the person back to a state of balance and well being. Sometimes, Chinese herbal medicine may be prescribed so a person can give herself a "treatment" every day and hold the benefits of the acupuncture session. Chinese medicine is the second oldest system of medicine in the world and has been practiced for approximately 2,500 years. It is safe and effective, and people love how good they feel!
