General Women’s Health
Like many branches of Chinese medicine, traditional gynaecology (women’s health) has a long history of using acupuncture and Chinese herbs to alleviate many gynaecological symptoms and diseases.
Traditional Chinese Medicine approaches the fertility of a couple in a complete and holistic way. Before conception can occur, there are certain aspects of both the woman’s health and the man’s health that may be treated in order to improve the overall fertility health of the couple.
Acupuncture treatments leading up to and throughout an IVF cycle can improve both physical and emotional health during the process as well as being of great benefit to the outcome.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), particularly acupuncture, is a safe and effective treatment which can be used successfully for a variety of conditions during pregnancy- from conception right through to delivery and postpartum care.
Pre-birth acupuncture & postnatal support
Acupuncture can be of great benefit when used as a tool to prepare the body for an efficient delivery with less intervention and complications as well as assisting and easing recovery postnatally.
