Acupuncture and herbal therapy, together known as Chinese Medicine, have been practiced for over 2,000 years. Both have rich histories in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, with the first Chinese medical text devoted entirely to maternal care and fetal development dating all the way back to 168 BCE.
Acupuncture is a gentle, non-invasive form of needle therapy that uses very fine, single-use, stainless steel needles to stimulate acupuncture points along the meridians–pathways of vital energy. This smooths the flow of qi–vital life energy–which translates to increased blood, oxygen and nutrient flow throughout the body to support healthy physiological functioning, aid our body’s natural healing response, and promote deep relaxation.
Today acupuncture is being embraced by midwives, OBGYNs, MDs, birthing centers, and reproductive endocrinologists as a safe, effective and natural way to optimize fertility, promote healthier, happier pregnancies, prepare the body for a more efficient labor, significantly reduce the rate of medical intervention during labor, enhance lactation, aid the body in recovery post childbirth and reduce postpartum depression. In addition to the benefits of Chinese Medicine for pregnancy, birth preparation and postpartum wellness, it is also an incredibly effective, drug-free therapy for pain relief and stress reduction.
Our Chinese Medical practitioners are highly skilled, licensed acupuncturists and herbalists with specialized training in prenatal and postpartum care, women’s health and reproductive wellness, internal medicine and pain management.
