Prenatal Acupuncture

Gentle Pregnancy Acupuncture in Lower Highlands Denver

From the moment you discover that you’re pregnant, your focus is on having a healthy pregnancy and setting your child up for a strong start in life.

You’re limiting caffeine and avoiding alcohol. You’ve given up sushi and deli meat. Maybe you’ve made some changes to your exercise routine. But you can also give yourself and your baby an advantage by implementing prenatal acupuncture therapy. More and more women are seeking acupuncture for pregnancy because it is a drug-free, non-invasive way to cope with a number of pregnancy-related symptoms. Around the world, expectant mothers are avoiding over the counter drugs and relieving pain and discomfort through pregnancy acupuncture. Is prenatal acupuncture right for you?

Why Acupuncture for Pregnancy?
The Benefits of Prenatal Acupuncture

Acupuncture is well known for its ability to reduce pain and inflammation and promote healing for a vast number of physical, mental, and emotional problems. During pregnancy, acupuncture can provide those benefits as well as relief for issues unique to expectant mothers. Acupuncture for pregnancy may be able to ease the following symptoms during your pregnancy:

  • Heartburn
  • Swollen legs
  • Constipation 
  • Sciatica
  • Morning sickness
  • Lower back pain
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches

In addition to your pregnancy acupuncture treatment, additional services such as Gua Sha, cupping, or moxibustion may be recommended by your acupuncturist at Refuge Acupuncture. Moxibustion therapy is sometimes used during sessions of acupuncture for pregnancy because of its impact on fetal positioning. If you’re nearing the end of your pregnancy and your baby is still in a breech (head up) position, moxibustion may be able to help turn him or her properly head-down and potentially avoid a c-section. Immediately after birth, Gua Sha massage can help avoid the complications associated with breast engorgement. This overfullness of breast milk can be painful and can cause problems with breastfeeding. Your pregnancy acupuncture practitioner at Refuge can advise you on this or other therapies you may need after delivery.
