Pregnancy Acupuncture

Pregnancy Acupuncture Christchurch

Acupuncture in pregnancy can help with many commonly encountered problems and is a very safe treatment option. A woman goes through major changes during pregnancy both physically and often, mentally and emotionally. These changes can be challenging but with the right support, pregnancy can be a very positive experience.

Morning sickness, back pain and insomnia are often regarded as the normal ‘nuisances’ of being pregnant that you just have to work thorough. These, and many other issues can however be greatly eased by acupuncture. Some of the typical health problems of pregnancy acupuncture can help with include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Back and pelvic pain
  • Fatigue
  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
  • Muscle cramps
  • Insomnia
  • Fluid retention
  • Breech presentation
  • Pre-birth treatment to help with an efficient labour
  • Postnatal recovery

Morning Sickness

Nausea and vomiting are extremely common in the first trimester of pregnancy and acupuncture can relieve many of the symptoms of morning sickness.

Pelvic & Back Pain

As your body changes during pregnancy lower back, pubic symphasis and sacroiliac joint pain can become a problem. Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment option for many women.

Breech and Transverse Presentation

Breech and transverse presentation of baby can cause labour complications and often leads to caesarian birth. Moxibustion can be used as a simple and safe self treatment from 34 weeks on and is an effective way to turn baby into a more optimal position.
