ACUPUNCTURE FOR WOMEN

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that dates back 2,000 years. This ancient time-tested technique takes a whole-body approach, and offers a natural, safe way to restore balance and promote healing. The theory behind Chinese Medicine begins with the concept of "Qi" or life force energy. This energy flows through pathways, which are called meridians within the body. These meridians provide nourishment for every cell, tissue, muscle and organ. When this flow becomes blocked or imbalanced, dis-ease occurs and symptoms may arise. 

During your initial consultation Andrea will not only use pulse and tongue diagnosis, but she will also consider the state of your chakra system and emotional health. In order to fully bring one's body back into a state of homeostasis, the mind, body and spirit must all be considered. During a treatment fine, sterile needles will be inserted into specific acupoints along the meridian. Each acupoint has it's own function and directly influences the body once stimulated. This treatment will remove any obstruction within the meridian and allow Qi to flow freely again.

ACUPUNCTURE & PREGNANCY

Acupuncture offers pregnant women a safe and natural approach to healing. Andrea supports women throughout all 3 stages of pregnancy; pre-natal, labour, and post-natal. 

Here is a list of symptoms acupuncture can alleviate:

  • Stress and anxiety

  • Post-partum depression

  • Mastitis or difficulties producing breast milk

  • Breech and posterior positions

  • Heartburn

  • Morning sickness/nausea

  • Hormonal migraines 

  • Sacral and low back pain

  • Trauma from previous births

  • Miscarriage

INDUCTION TREATMENTS

Induction treatments beginning at 37 weeks will....

  • ripen the cervix,

  • help baby descend, 

  • initiate contractions

  • open the hips 

Reiki is also included if fear or trauma is sub-consciously restricting your body from fully opening.

PRE-BIRTH TREATMENTS involve a series of four treatments weekly from 37 weeks to prepare for labour. Points are used according to a woman's constitution and pregnancy history. This may include points used to assist in ripening the cervix,  positioning  the baby in the best presentation for labour and to help baby descend. Andrea also considers the emotional state of both mom and baby. This is evaluated by assessing the chakra system, and scanning the body for areas that may be carrying suppressed emotions. When sub-conscious blockages are cleared the body can further relax and surrender to the process. 

BREECH BABIES are ideally treated between 34 - 36 weeks gestation. This is often a one off treatment with women being shown how to continue treatment at home with a moxa stick (a herb that has been shaped into a cigar like stick). Andrea tunes into the emotional body of both mom and baby as well during this treatment.

During each treatment Andrea offers her clients take home tools as well as acupressure points that will further support the natural process of labour.
