Having a child of one’s own is something many women decide is the right choice for them, but unfortunately conceiving a child without medical intervention is often out of reach. It’s important to utilize all options and find the best care to suit an individual’s needs. Prenatal acupuncture may help patients not only with conception but also to ease and relieve the pangs of pregnancy. Acupuncture is safe, virtually pain-free, and can be very effective. Many treatments are covered by insurance companies leaving the patient to only pay a co-pay for the visits. Acupuncture is an age-old Chinese practice where no medication is used, only tiny sterile needles to tap into your “Qi” and drive your energy in all the right directions.
