    • Pregnancy Care

    • Specialized prenatal acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy have been a proven means of safeguarding a healthy pregnancy and uncomplicated delivery, and facilitating postpartum recovery for over 3,000 years, and its popularity in the West is on the rise. Pregnancy is an exciting and wonderful time, but the many physical, hormonal and emotional changes it brings can make it uncomfortable and stressful time as well. Many women suffer fatigue, nausea, backache, and other conditions considered "normal" parts of pregnancy. Fortunately, acupuncture offers a safe, gentle, and effective way to address these complaints, especially since many Western medications cannot be used during pregnancy.

      In addition to offering a safe, effective, and drug-free way of dealing with various common pregnancy-related issues that left unattended, may result in long-term problems, the Chinese medical approach also helps strengthen fetal and maternal health, alleviate anxiety and stress, facilitate a healthy and comfortable pregnancy, and can be very effective in addressing breech presentation, and promoting smooth labor and delivery.

      Following birth, acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy can help effectively promote postnatal recovery by boosting depleted energies and supporting return to hormonal balance, facilitating wound healing and scar tissue repair, relieving bloating and edema, alleviating pelvic or back pain and sciatica, and helping address other postnatal issues such as insufficient lactation, mastitis, postpartum depression, and urinary incontinence.
