What can acupuncture help with? What can it support the treatment of?                    

Acupuncture can help with the treatment of myriad conditions. According to an evidence-based review of clinical literature, acupuncture can assist in treating a wide number of physical, neurological, mental and emotional ailments. The conditions that have been backed up by both clinical experience and research include:

  • Acute and chronic pain conditions
  • Tension headaches
  • Management of migraines
  • Hayfever
  • Acute sinusitis
  • Common cold
  • Dental pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Infertility
  • Menstrual problems and irregularities
  • Pregnancy related ailments
  • Labour support
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Weight loss
  • Insomnia

Acupuncture may be able to assist with conditions not mentioned above, however supporting scientific evidence may be limited. This doesn’t mean acupuncture won’t be able to help, just that there may not be enough supporting evidence yet, and new research in the field is always continuing.

Pre-Labour Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a fantastic way to help prepare the body for birth and may assist in shortening labour duration and intensity. Startingat 37 weeks, treatments are once a week and can help to centre you and prepare you for the final step before Motherhood.

Pre-Labour Acupuncture may help to improve circulation to the uterus, cervix and the lower back to reduce the intensity of contraction waves. It can also lower stress hormones, so that birthing hormones can build gradually. In the case of a breech presentation, a special treatment at 34 weeks can encourage the baby to turn naturally. And if your due date has come and gone, acupuncture can help initiate the process of labour.
