Acupuncture for Pregnancy

In the months leading up to birth, most women experience a range of physical stressors. Heartburn, nausea, sciatica, swelling, back and hip pain, and constipation are just a few of the experiences that often accompany pregnancy.

Acupuncture is an ideal treatment option for these conditions because it is a drug free and non-invasive treatment. Acupuncture activates the body’s built-in healing system so that these conditions can be treated by the body itself, from the inside out. Many women, especially expectant mothers, prefer these natural, safe options over taking medications that simply mask the underlying problems or could cause harm to their child.
