Acupuncture has been shown to be extremely effective in the treatment of pregnancy related symptoms including:
Excessive Amniotic Fluid (“untreatable” according to western medicine)
Minor Leg Swelling
Acupuncture is safe during pregnancy, and can be very soothing to both mother and baby. Although there are contraindications, all licensed acupuncturists are fully trained in the use of appropriate points for pregnancy, and which points to avoid.
At Root & Branch, we are extremely cautious with conditions which may not be appropriate for us to treat, and are well educated in pregnancy related conditions which require medical attention. Although many Chinese Herbs are totally safe to take during pregnancy, we do not advocate their use unless you are completely comfortable with this choice. We are here to support your pregnancy and your choices and will not recommend any therapy with which you are not comfortable.
