Acupuncture can provide great relief for troubling pregnancy symptoms. I have assisted many women both in my own midwifery practice and those sent to me by my midwifery colleagues. It can also be useful in promoting spontaneous labour at term. Acupressure, or the manual stimulation of acupuncture points can also be a very helpful in the soon to be a labour support persons' toolbox, this is very straightforward to learn.
You don't have to be sick to benefit from acupuncture. Its helpful to address what we sometimes think of as minor health concerns. Niggling symptoms like headaches, poor digestion or sleep could be the body's way of alerting us to potential problems. Other examples are menstrual difficulties, or feeling tired, low energy or overwhelmed on a regular basis. And possibly using over the counter medicines regularly to cope with symptoms is another sign there could be room for improvement. Acupuncture can help to harmonise or rebalance what is going on which can both relieve symptoms and prevent development of more serious issues.
Acupuncture is helpful for relieving stress and tension, its similar to the effects of a massage so if you need to slow down and tune in with your inner self you could book an appointment online now.
