Pregnancy Journey with Acupuncture and TCM

Pregnancy is a remarkable and transformative experience, filled with both joy and challenges. As your body changes to accommodate your growing baby, you may experience a range of discomforts and concerns. 

At Healing with Zen, we understand the unique needs of pregnant women and offer a holistic approach to support you throughout your pregnancy journey with acupuncture.

Acupuncture: A Gentle Path to Well-being

Acupuncture, a core principle of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), has been safely and effectively used for centuries to address a wide range of pregnancy-related symptoms. By stimulating specific points on the body, acupuncture helps to restore balance and promote natural healing.

Our experienced acupuncturists are skilled in treating a variety of pregnancy-related issues, including:

  • Low back pain: Acupuncture can provide relief from low back pain

  • Headaches: Alleviate headaches, often caused by hormonal changes and stress.

  • Sinus congestion: Acupuncture can help to clear sinus congestion and improve breathing.

  • Blood sugar issues: Acupuncture can help to regulate blood sugar levels, particularly for women with gestational diabetes.

  • Placenta previa: Acupuncture may help to prevent or resolve placenta previa, a condition where the placenta lies too low in the uterus.

  • Constipation: Acupuncture can help to regulate bowel movements and relieve constipation

  • Nausea and vomiting: Acupuncture can help to reduce nausea and vomiting, often experienced during the first trimester.

  • Stress and anxiety: Acupuncture can help to manage stress, anxiety, and mood swings.



In addition to acupuncture, we offer a variety of complementary modalities to enhance your pregnancy experience.

Earseeds, small pellets placed on specific points on the ear, provide continuous stimulation and can help to manage symptoms such as nausea and insomnia.

Cupping a technique that involves applying suction cups to the skin, can help to relieve muscle tension and improve circulation. This can be so helpful for low or upper back pain! 

 It is important to note that cupping may also increase your immune response and stimulate your lungs.
