Acupuncture and Pregnancy, The Statistics

A review combining the results of seven previous studies has found that acupuncture increases the chances of having an ongoing pregnancy (beyond 12 weeks from gestation) by 87 per cent — and nearly doubles the chance of a successful live birth, increasing that by 91 per cent.

Pregnancy is an amazing time for a woman, her partner and her family. It can also be overwhelming and even daunting at the same time. At Shen Therapies we provide a safe, professional and caring environment to support and nurture a woman’s health through her pregnancy.

Pregnancy Treatments at Shen Therapies are individually tailored, with each treatment including massage and acupuncture. We can assist in the treating the following conditions and others that can occur during pregnancy:

  • Morning Sickness
  • Threatened Miscarriage
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Pubic Symphysis Syndrome
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Colds and Flus
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Aches
  • Thrush

We recommend fortnightly appointments during the first and third trimester of pregnancy and monthly appointments during the second trimester. Regular treatments are important for optimal health and vitality of both Mother and baby during pregnancy and we also carry an exclusive range of supplements to compliment treatments.
