Post Natal Recovery

Abstract Traditional Chinese medicine has very firm ideas on the amount of care and rest appropriate to the first month or longer after childbirth that contrast with the modern emphasis on returning to normal activities within a week or two. Recovery after childbirth can be promoted by appropriate tonifying acupuncture treatments and dietary advice.
Postpartum recovery acupuncture treatments can help alleviate some of these challenges that women face after giving birth: 

  • Breastfeeding problem 
  • Milk production 
  • Mastitis
  • Persistent uterine bleeding
  • Afterpains (Abdominal Cramps)
  • Night sweats
  • Perineal discomfort
  • Pain of incisions from C-section
  • Postnatal depression (Baby Blues)
  • Insomnia
  • Hemorrhoids

Medical studies focusing on the effects of acupuncture on conditions such as postpartum depression and insufficient lactation have found that acupuncture is both an effective and safe therapy to treat these conditions. The benefits of acupuncture and herbs can help ensure that you are at your optimal level of health at such an important time in your life.
