Pregnancy

Acupuncture provides pregnant women with a natural, side-effect-free option for enhancing their health and comfort. It effectively addresses common pregnancy discomforts like morning sickness, fatigue, pelvic and lower back pains, and emotional fluctuations. Prioritizing holistic support for the body is essential during this time. Additionally, acupuncture serves as a valuable tool for labor preparation, potentially shortening the duration of labor and minimizing the need for medical interventions.

What to Expect from the Treatment

     The focus of the treatment will be on ensuring your comfort. You will be guided to adopt a relaxed position either on your side or seated with the support of a pillow. Needles will be strategically placed at specific acupuncture points and left in position for 30-40 minutes.

     During the treatment while you're lying there, you may begin to feel your baby kicking, which is completely normal and a positive sign, so there's no need for concern. However, if you do feel anxious, our doctor will be present to alleviate any worries or address your needs promptly. Following a session, common responses may include more regular uterine contractions and the gradual progression of your baby's movements.
