When the body is out of balance, pregnancy can be a time of great physical and emotional discomfort. Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture can provide a profound positive influence on this time of life, bringing positive balance to a woman's physical system, and emotional well-being by creating physical and hormonal stability.


Acupuncture alone can help to normalize the central nervous system and the endocrine system which helps to normalize hormonal function. Acupuncture can also be effectively used to treat related fatigue, anxiety, and pain during pregnancy.


Regular acupuncture during the period of pregnancy can set a strong stable foundation for a more comfortable pregnancy and easier birth experience. Several European studies found that once a week acupuncture during the last month of pregnancy had significantly shorter labor than women who did not receive any acupuncture.
