Acupuncture and TCM in Pregnancy
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are becoming increasingly used both in preparation for and during pregnancy, a time when women are most likely to seek out natural forms of healthcare.
A healthy body and lifestyle are essential to having a healthy child. Acupuncture brings balance to both the body and the mind, helping to prepare a woman for pregnancy and create the optimum environment for a baby to grow and thrive.
Chinese medicine is also commonly used today in conjunction with western fertility treatments such as IUI and IVF to aid in conception and increase the chance of successful implantation, a full-term pregnancy, and the development of a healthy baby.
Acupuncture and TCM can also play a fundamental role in achieving an ideal pregnancy. It can effectively treat many conditions which occur during the various stages of pregnancy, helping both mother and baby to be their most healthy and vibrant. Below is a summary of some of the most commonly treated pregnancy-related conditions.
