Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is a wonderful option during pregnancy, offering a safe way to address various challenging conditions without any worry about medications affecting your baby. Traditionally, acupuncture is thought to rebalance the body's energy flow, and advancements in science and technology have revealed that inserting very fine, sterile needles into the skin stimulates nerve endings, sending signals to the brain. This in turn, triggers the release of hormones and pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, oxytocin, and serotonin. Additionally, acupuncture enhances blood flow and induces changes in cell chemistry to promote overall well-being.
