Perinatal Care

Acupuncture is one of the oldest medical systems in the world and one of the first to recognize women’s health as a specialized area of care. The earliest known writings on Chinese medicine discuss caring for women before, during, and after pregnancy. Chinese medicine was also early to recognize pregnancy as a uniquely important moment in life to treat imbalances in the body.

Acupuncture is one of the safest and most effective ways to treat many of the conditions we often associate with pregnancy. As your baby grows your body is challenged in new and diverse ways. As you settle into these changes, acupuncture will help you naturally address the most common ailments you may encounter, giving you the time and energy you need to take charge of a wonderful stage in your life.

Some of the conditions we safely treat include:

  • Nausea

  • Heartburn

  • Indigestion

  • Fatigue

  • Insomnia

  • Headaches

  • Sinus pressure

  • Back pain
