Post-Natal Support

Post-Natal Support

Acupuncture is a wonderful tool to help new mothers recover. Postpartum treatment refers to treatment given within the first six weeks of birth. Ideally acupuncture treatment is given once a week commencing from two weeks postpartum to promote energy lost during the pregnancy and labour and ensure a quick recovery.

Post-Natal acupuncture can help with the following:

    • Help your body come back into balance
    • Promote relaxation and stress reduction
    • Encourage healthy milk supply
    • Relieve anxiety and post-natal depression
    • Alleviate night sweats
    • Re-establish healthy menstrual cycles
    • Relieve back pain
    • General post-natal tonification to restore energy levels
