From morning sickness to heartburn, swelling in the limbs to back pain, Acupuncture can help pregnant women alleviate many of these unpleasant effects. Acupuncture is very safe during pregnancy and is a noninvasive and all natural alternative compared to taking medication.
Acupuncture can even help with miscarriage prevention, breech baby presentation, and even help to induce labor when the time is right.
Many women experience irregular menstruation, where the bleeding is either too heavy, too light, too long, or too short. Spotting mid-cycle, or painful periods and heavy PMS symptoms can all be part of irregular menstruation. Irregular menstruation can also be tied to certain metabolic disorders, such as problems with thyroid, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or blood sugar imbalance.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help to normalize your menstrual cycle by reducing stress, balancing your metabolic and endocrine systems, and stabilizing hormonal fluctuations to help with the natural healthy flow of your cycle.
