Using TCM And Acupuncture During Pregnancy

By Audrey Hegarty

There is no doubt that carrying a baby is a rollercoaster of emotions. Women can feel wonderful and terrible at the same time! The elation of carrying your own child inside you is upset by the sickness, sore back, and fatigue that are your constant companions during pregnancy.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture offer a safe, gentle and effective way to address these issues and others since pregnant women are quite limited with western medical treatments.

Your acupuncture treatment will be carried out at certain important stages of your pregnancy and this will help to ensure a healthy birth, healthy baby and healthy mum. There are many benefits for both mummy and baby from these treatments.

The conditions that are best treated with acupuncture and TSM are as follow: fatigue, morning sickness, heartburn and nausea. There are however more ailments that these treatments will protect against. TCM treatments have a long tradition in China and have been used to great effect as far back as over 2000 years ago. They are excellent in the treatment of babies.

Even though acupuncture treatment will work just as well on children as it does on adults, what you will find is that adults are often reluctant to bring their kids to get acupunture treatment. They mistakenly think that this treatment would be of no benefit to their children and are sometimes worried that their children will be too scared of the needles.

The culture in China is very different as it is highly common to see acupuncture used as both a preventive medicine and a problem treatment. It all just boils down to how this treatment is presented to the children from their parents. If it is explained in a calm way without fear then your child is highly unlikely to be afraid.

If you want to give your children the best possible start to life then acupuncture is a treatment that should interest you. Many studies have shown the correlation between a child’s well being and acupuncture treatment. Their resistance to diseases and all round happiness grow and acupuncture also helps children throughout the many changes they go through in life.

Most treatments are carried out with your child sitting on your lap because they will feel safe and protected – this will be a benefit for the child, the parent and the practitioner.
