Acupuncture is a very gentle treatment used to help a whole range of conditions, from musculoskeletal pain to gynaecological disorders and mental health. After an initial consultation, which will include feeling your pulse, very fine needles are inserted into specific points along the energy channels. The needles are thought to bring energy back into balance and thereby activate your body’s own healing response. Some scientists and acupuncturists believe that acupuncture stimulates nerve and muscle tissue and that this may be responsible for any beneficial effect. It is common to experience a deep sense of relaxation and a sense of well-being after having acupuncture.
Many couples are now using acupuncture to treat conditions related to fertility. Chinese medicine believes that fertility acupuncture can target specific problems, or just optimise health and reduce stress. Studies have also shown that it is effective in treating common symptoms of pregnancy, such as back pain, insomnia and constipation, and there is evidence to suggest that acupuncture can reduce the need for medical induced labour.
