Pregnancy

Chinese Medicine has always stressed that a women needs to take special care of herself during pregnancy and in the weeks following childbirth. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) provide a safe and natural way for you to alleviate some of the unwanted side effects of pregnancy, relieve pain during labour, ease birth and promote recovery after delivering your baby.

Acupuncture is particularly helpful for

  • Recurrent Miscarriage
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Backaches
  • Breech
  • Cervical ripening/prebirth
  • Labour Induction
  • Post natal Care.

Our highly skilled practitioners work closely with many obstetricians, doctors and midwives in Vancouver. They are passionate about providing services to women throughout all stages of their pregnancy. We also have many stories to share from women who experienced easier, more comfortable birth because of working with us. 

 

We want you to know that we are here for you and that we’d love to be a resource for you in as many ways as we possibly can. That’s why we have launched Virtual Wellness & Naturopathic Medicine Consultations (also known as eVisits) – so that you can connect with an expirenced practitioner no matter where you are!

During these consultations, our team of licensed Chinese medicine practitioners and naturopathic physicians will be able to update your current treatment plan or if you are new to Acubalance, help you set new health goals. They’ll also be able to prescribe you herbal formulas tailored to your unique pattern, recommend appropriate vitamins and supplements, and offer you advice, support, and dietary suggestions. And more relevant now than ever before, mind-body and stress reduction tools to transform anxiety and despair into calm and peace.

Our team will be able to help provide you with suggestions on how to help you take care of yourself and your family. We’ll work with you to support your pregnancy and be your solution for insomnia, hormone imbalances, infertility, and anxiety, as well as offer information about boosting and supporting your immune system and staying as healthy as possible.
