You are now pregnant. We can offer you safe treatment during pregnancy.
Debbie (32) decided to try acupuncture treatment for morning sickness after everything else failed. ‘I was starting to get worried. My first two pregnancies had been comfortable. From the moment I woke up I felt nauseous, and could barely hold even a glass of water down.’ Debbie had read about the use of acupuncture for feeling nauseous in a childbirth book. ‘It wasn’t magic,’ she said, ‘it took three or four sessions to get to the point where I didn’t feel sick all the time, and my acupuncturist was very careful because I was pregnant. There’s no doubt it helped, though, and it seemed to help me keep calm as well. A little girl, in case you wondered!’
Acupuncture is a tried and tested system of traditional medicine. It has been used in China and other eastern cultures for over 2500 years to restore, promote and maintain good health.
Studies carried out on 593 Australian women concluded that acupuncture is a safe procedure when carried out in pregnancy (Smith et al 2002).
