Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Acupuncture in gynecology and obstetrics

Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of traditional Chinese medicine. It supports women through their reproductive health. Acupuncture also supports pregnant women during pregnancy, preparing for labor and delivery, and the postpartum period. This technique is based on energy flow in the body. Acupuncture uses needles inserted into the skin at strategic points to regulate energy and promote balance between body and mind.
