Acupuncture is a safe, non-invasive method of treatment for moms to be in any stage of pregnancy.

Acupuncture may assist in managing common pregnancy symptoms during the
second trimester such as back pain, headaches, hip pain, stress, pelvic pain,
indigestion, sciatica, constipation, insomnia, itching, oedema, and hypertension.
Acupuncture treatments are suggested to be every 4 weeks during this time,
providing you are having a pregnancy with no ongoing symptoms.

Partner Sessions

We also offer a session when you are close to full term for your birth partner to come in and learn some valuable acupressure points for labor. This gives the
partner an engaging part of the process that can make the whole experience better for all. These points may assist a variety of things that may occur, such as
moving baby down into the birth canal, relieving pain during contractions, turning baby posterior, and nausea. We also provide a manual with pictures so that it is easy to perform.
