Pregnancy is as beautiful as it is overwhelming. Your body and mind experience all the ebbs and flows of change as a tiny human prepares itself for the world right there in your womb. Everything you do, you do for two – you eat, sleep, exercise, and take care of yourself in general for both you and the baby.
Proven safe and effective not just by medical practitioners but by time and tradition themselves, acupuncture treatment for pregnancy is one of the best ways for you to help you and your baby and power through these nine months. In this article, learn the benefits of getting acupuncture treatment over the course of your pregnancy.
First of all, what is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese traditional healing. Our body’s life force energy (referred to by the Chinese as QI) flows through our body through different channels. Acupuncture establishes the flow of that energy and helps remove obstacles that hinder your energy from flowing freely. Think of your life force energy as a river and acupuncture as the method that’s used to direct the waters flow throughout your body.
Acupuncturists improve the flow of your QI by stimulating specific points on your body. They use special needles (thin as strands of hair) to do so. However, other methods such as heat, acupressure, or electric stimulation may also be applied, depending on the needs of the person receiving the treatment.

Acupuncture Strengthens Yours and Your Baby’s Immunity
Acupuncture helps a person improve their immunity, and that is need even more so when a person is carrying a new human in their womb. Because of the changes your body is experiencing, you might be prone to sickness while you are pregnant. This may also affect the baby. So, for as long as mum’s immunity is strong, the baby stays safe and healthy as it is growing and developing. Acupuncture treatment is therefore a preventative treatment and as well as a long-term solution.
