Acupuncture for Pre and Post-Natal Care

At Ben Tolson, we understand the importance of well-being during pregnancy and the postnatal period. We're proud to offer acupuncture treatments specially tailored for mothers in Bristol to manage pre-natal symptoms and ensure a healthy and nurturing experience. 

Is Acupuncture Safe during Pregnancy? 

Acupuncture is generally considered safe during pregnancy, however certain acupuncture points cannot be used, which is why seeing an experienced Acupuncturist for your treatment plan is essential. Acupuncture for pregnancy is used in many GP practices on the NHS, and the NHS considers it a safe treatment during pregnancy

The Benefits of Acupuncture during Pregnancy

Acupuncture has long been recognised for its ability to support and optimise health during pregnancy. The treatment is considered to help alleviate common pregnancy-related issues, such as morning sickness, fatigue, and anxiety. By stimulating specific points on the body, acupuncture can balance the energy flow and contribute to a smoother and more comfortable pregnancy.

Acupuncture for Labour Preparation

As the due date approaches, acupuncture treatments can facilitate a smoother labour experience. These treatments focus on promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety and stress, and optimising the body's natural ability to facilitate childbirth. Some NHS maternity units offer acupuncture for labour as an alternative pain-reduction method, reducing the intensity of labour pain amongst other benefits. 

Post-Natal Acupuncture Treatment

Following childbirth, our focus is naturally on caring for our new baby, which means our wellbeing can often fall to the wayside. It’s important to remember our own recovery and well-being. Acupuncture for postnatal care can help nurture the body, address any imbalances, and support healthy energy levels. The treatment could help address common issues such as insufficient lactation, postpartum depression, and pelvic pain.
