Care Cure Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine clinic believes that a lot of conditions associated with pregnancy arise from low stomach energy. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners aim to strengthen the energetic function of the stomach meridian and correct any underlying problems.
Care Cure’s pregnancy treatments include help for nausea, vomiting, heartburn, constipation, breech birth, urinary tract infections, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and depression, induction, itching, and pre-birth treatment.
Nausea during pregnancy is often dismissed as a minor disorder but as this condition affects one third of all pregnancies it is worth considering acupuncture, a drug-free alternative that can ease symptoms and reduce the energetic workload of the digestive system.
Breech babies are ideally treated between 34 and 36 weeks’ gestation with a moxa stick (a herb shaped like a cigar ). The moxa stick is combined with acupuncture; it is lit and held over specific areas of the body to stimulate the relaxation of the womb and encourage the foetus to turn around.
Chinese medicine also offers birth preparation. This usually involves a series of treatments weekly from week 36 or 37 to prepare the mother for labour. Acupuncture is used to stimulate points that act to ripen the cervix, position the baby in the best position for labour, and promote optimal energy and stamina for woman to enter into labour.
