Pregnancy

Even an uncomplicated pregnancy can involve a multitude of problems including back and pelvic pain, nausea, indigestion or emotional problems such as anxiety and depression.

Jo has had a great deal of success treating pregnant patients and helping them have happy, pain and discomfort free pregnancys.

How acupuncture can help in pregnancy


Research has found evidence that acupuncture may assist with the management of some pregnancy related complaints. It can provide a safe, drug free alternative to relieve these symptoms by:

•    increasing relaxation and reducing tension
•    stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues to change the processing of pain  in the brain and spinal cord
•    reducing inflammation

Several reviews have found that moxibustion (a warming herb) has a positive effect in correcting breech presentation.


Pain relief during labour

Studies suggest acupuncture may help to relieve pain during labour and that it was better than conventional analgesia. Several reviews have found that moxibustion has a positive effect in correcting breech presentation.

Jo is happy to teach partners how acupressure for child birth.

If you’d like to know more about how acupuncture can benefit you during pregnancy call Jo on 01273 575 or email. Free initial consultations are available.
