Ensuring a Healthy Pregnancy

TCM During Your Pregnancy

Healthy PregnancyTraditional Chinese Medical treatments during pregnancy benefits both mother and child. Those who are pregnant and are experiencing difficulties such as excessive and prolonged morning sickness, back and pelvis pain, breech position, and other problems should consider a consultation with one of our experienced Chinese medicine practitioners.

In addition, those who have become pregnant by alternative means such as IVF or IUI should consider ongoing checkups with our Chinese medicine practitioners to ensure the healthiest and most problem free pregnancy possible.

Moxibustion and acupuncture are an effective treatment to induce labour naturally. After just two to three short sessions, labour can be naturally induced, safely. Pharmaceuticals such as Pitocin (oxytocin) can be avoided, and stress to both mother and child can be minimized. Speak to our practitioners about scheduling your appointment close to your due date.
