Acupuncture in Pregnancy
There’s no doubt that pregnancy can cause some niggles here and there. With many complementary therapies unable to be practised during pregnancy, many women turn to acupuncture in pregnancy to get some relief from pain, tiredness and illness.
During pregnancy, acupuncture tends to be used to treat pelvic and back pain as well as nausea. As with any therapy, some women find relief through acupuncture in pregnancy while unfortunately some women do not.
It is important to find a qualified and registered acupuncturist to undertake any acupuncture treatments while pregnant, as well as it being a good idea to discuss details of planned treatments with your doctors and midwives.
During your first session, your practitioner will assess you and ask your concerns. They will then explain what they are doing and how it will assist. The acupuncture process itself requires thin, sterilised needles to be inserted at specific points in your skin. These points relate to a particular concern based on Qi principles. When these points are stimulated, they can help to correct imbalances and assist with pain relief.
