Pregnancy can be a challenging time in a woman’s life, with many changes to the body occurring that can cause wide ranging symptoms. If you want to optimise your health and wellbeing during this time, acupuncture for pregnancy may assist with some symptoms such as musculoskeletal pains, nausea and vomiting. Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic has experienced acupuncturists who are skilled in pregnancy acupuncture in Melbourne, helping to support the body and optimise overall health and wellbeing.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into certain pressure points of the body, with the aim of activating the body’s natural healing ability. Targeting different pressure points can assist with different systems of the body. With acupuncture for pregnancy, our acupuncturist will target points that are associated with pregnancy symptoms, such as pregnancy related aches and nausea. The treatment doesn’t require anything to be ingested, making it a safe option for most women looking for extra support during their pregnancy. Acupuncture during pregnancy may also be used in conjunction with other Chinese herbal medicine treatments to support overall health and wellness.
During the first trimester, appointments on a weekly basis may be recommended. Once the second trimester is entered, appointments can become less frequent as early pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and vomiting begin to diminish.
