It’s no small feat becoming a mum. Here at Quiescence we strongly believe in supporting women in both body and mind through this exciting yet often daunting transition.
The beauty of acupuncture during pregnancy, especially if you are struggling with morning sickness, is that it is purely bodywork. No need to take drugs or bad tasting medicines. You also get to lie down and rest, interruption free, for a good half hour.
While there are acupoints that are historically considered not to be safe to use during pregnancy, as practitioners who frequently treat pregnant women we are well aware of their locations, actions and reasons for being contraindicated.
Our treatments are always as gentle as possible and conducted with the well being of our patients at the foremost of our minds.
The earliest known Chinese Medicine record regarding the treatment of women during pregnancy is the Jin Gui Yao Lue. A medical text written by Zhang ZhongJing around the year 200CE. Since then there has been a steady growth of knowledge and understanding in how to address both common and complex pregnancy related conditions.
