Pre Conception

Acupuncture can assist in optimising you and your partner’s health, helping to provide the best conditions possible for conception.

 

Pregnancy and Labour

By the careful choice of points to suit your individual situation, Acupuncture can help relieve many of the symptoms associated with pregnancy ,  such as nausea and vomiting, physical aches and pains (including back, pelvic and labour pain) and promote a sense of calm and well-being.

The burning of moxibustion (from the Artemisia Vulgaris Latiflora plant) has also traditionally been used to help with optimal foetal positioning by encouraging baby to turn head down.

Acupressure of specific points can also be used by your partner of birthing partner to help support you through the stages of labour.

 

Post Natal Period

You’ve had a beautiful baby, or maybe more! But pregnancy, motherhood and labour can be exceedingly demanding.  Acupuncture can help provide a space for you to recover, reflect and regain your strength.  The use of moxa, gentle massage and needling can all help to improve your wellbeing.
