Taupo Acupuncture Centre Ltd
Acupuncture and Pregnancy
At Taupo Acupuncture Centre we specialise in treating all conditions before during and after pregnancy.
The use of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in Gynaecology and Obstetrics has a history dating back to the Shang dynasty (1500-1000BC).
One of Acupunctures strongest and most rapidly growing areas is in Gynaecology and Obstetrics, considerable research has been done in the treatment of infertility, miscarriage and midwifery.
Optimal health before, during and after pregnancy is of the utmost importance as the health of the mother will have a profound affect on the health of the child.
Acupuncture is a safe natural alternative to the treatment of problems common before during and after pregnancy. As well as treatment, lifestyle and dietary advice may be included.
Many changes occur during pregnancy and often imbalances in the mother which were hardly noticeable prior to being pregnant will become more pronounced and may lead to possible problems either during or in the post-natal period. These imbalances can be regulated and harmonised drug free and naturally with Acupuncture.
Some common problems that can be treated with Acupuncture at pregnancy time are listed below.
Foetus not Growing Oedema Anxiety
Retention of Urine Painful Urination Constipation
Joint Pain Haemorrhoids Prolapsed Uterus
Post-Natal Depression Retention of Lochia Insufficient Lactation
" I have been receiving treatment from Neil Banning of Auckland Acupuncture Centre for over 1 and a half years now. I sought treatment for Post Natal Depression for which I was taking antidepressants and while they were an important part of my recovery I wondered how I would ever get off the medication. With Neil's treatments, his compassion and professional manner and also under the GP's supervision I have been off medication now for 10 months. I have continued to have treatments with Neil as I have also had a huge improvement in my eczema. I no longer need to use large amounts of steroid creams to control flareups and I can confidently show my face without being worried about what people would say about my skin. Neil is now providing antenatal care for me as I venture through my second pregnancy with a positive outlook for my post natal health."
