The female body experiences many changes following conception, it is a period of growth, expansion and transformation. Acupuncture during pregnancy provides mothers-to-be with a safe and natural form of health care that allows for the physical, hormonal and emotional transitioning.
One of the most medically researched topic regarding symptoms during pregnancy is morning sickness and vomiting and acupuncture has been shown to reduce symptoms of morning sickness and well as regulate appetite and it can do much more than that.
Your pregnancy term is now well underway as are your physiological changes. This is a time to be avoiding strong medication and acupuncture is an effective treatment to help relieve symptoms such as aches and pains, insomnia, heart burn, haemorrhoids, swelling of hands and feet, enabling you to enjoy your pregnancy experience to the fullest.
As you enter the third trimester, thoughts of birthing plans and your baby’s impending arrival are afoot and an effective natural health care solution such as acupuncture is an amazing addition to that plan. An acupuncture physician will often combine moxa with acupuncture to encourage movement in a breech presentation. Help relieve aches and pains, such as pelvic pain, back ache, or nerve impingement due to the excess pressure of weight bearing during this later stage of pregnancy. An acupuncturist will also help prepare for labour, often avoiding medications as well as reserved C-sections.
“This morning I went for my first session of acuouncture. I’m 38 weeks pregnant and I have suffered from SPD. Gaynor made me feel very welcome, she made sure that I was comfortable and relaxed. It was such a brilliant experience and I’ve come away feeling amazing. I will definitely be going back, and I would highly recommend visiting Gaynor as there are so many benefits from having fertility acupuncture.”
“After a very long emotional road baby Olivia is finally with us… thank you to your treatment & advice before conception & during pregnancy. Without it I’m not sure we would be where we are. Furthermore it has kept me relaxed & grounded. I shall continue treatments in the future too.
Thank you so much Gaynor!”
