Just as every women is unique, so too is every pregnancy. The experience and resulting transformation is deeply personal and should be celebrated in health and happiness. Unfortunately, this transformation can strain a women’s physical body, leading to discomfort or even severe complications. At Radiant Point Acupuncture we work to prevent that stress from ever beginning. During pregnancy, treatments optimize fetal growth and encourage balance and strength for the mother-to-be. Through proper prenatal care, complications can be averted and the experience of pregnancy can be enjoyed in safety and health.
Acupuncture treatments in the time surrounding labor focus on proper fetal position and encouraging a smooth and timely labor so induction can be avoided. Research has shown that women who receive acupuncture and massage in preparation for birth experienced shortened labor times, reduced cesarian rates and quicker recovery.
Labor is hard work and caring for a mom afterwards is as important as caring for the newborn. Respect for this recovery time helps to acknowledge all the woman has done to welcome the new baby. Acupuncture and massage treatments focus on relaxation, restoration and creating renewed stores of energy.
She made me feel at ease throughout the treatment by explaining what she was doing during each step. Even as a nervous first time mom and terrified first time acupuncture patient, I was able to relax.
