Acupuncture has been practiced for over 5000 years and is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. It aims to restore smooth, balanced flow of "qi", which is vital energy, by targeting specific acu-points on the body. Numerous studies have proved the efficacy of acupuncture in pain reduction, enhanced circulation, and stress relief. Acupuncture is particularly valuable in pre and post natal care. It can help manage common discomforts of pregnancy such as nausea, morning sickness, and back pain, and also help turn a breech baby. Acupuncture is known to help with cervical ripening starting at 36 weeks to ensure a smoother childbirth. It can aid in childbirth recovery, balance hormones, and enhance milk production. It is a safe, effective, and painless approach to well-being. At most, you will feel a quick prick followed by sensation of warmth, soreness, or slight ache (if any). Many people find treatments to be relaxing and often fall asleep, which we like to call an "acu-nap". Overall, acupuncture harnesses the body's innate healing capacity to restore balance and makes it a powerful therapy for a wide range of health conditions.
