Acupuncture

At Baby Scene we’re here to support you throughout your pregnancy journey. Our latest service, acupuncture has been part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. It involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points to restore balance, stimulate blood flow and encourage the body to heal itself.

Acupuncture can be an excellent choice to address common pregnancy ailments safely and in a drug-free way. It can be used as a method to treat infertility issues in both men and women, as well as in preparation for IVF therapy. Acupuncture can even be used as a treatment for morning sickness, to facilitate labor and stimulate breastfeeding, as well as overcoming other postpartum issues like depression, weight loss and hormonal balance. TCM can also be used after a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy by increasing blood flow and balancing hormones to help prepare the body to become pregnant again. Using TCM, acupuncture and herbal treatments can improve blood flow into the reproductive organs and restore hormonal balance to the body.

The first treatment starts with a detailed consultation, recording past medical history. You will be asked about your current symptoms, your diet, digestion system, sleeping patterns and emotional state.

Acupuncture needles are much finer that needles used for injections and blood tests and are single-use disposable, stainless-steel type. They are inserted a few millimetres below the skin at chosen points along the channels of energy. The needles are left in place for at least 20 minutes.

The sensation may be either dull or is described as tingling, with the intention of stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism and help in restoring and maintaining its natural balance.

After your initial consultation and first acupuncture session, an individualized treatment plan will be tailored to suit your needs.
