How we can help
We make individual diagnosis, check your medical history including any blood tests and ultrasounds or request these if necessary, check any current BBT charts (see below for more information). Check your tongue and pulse and provide any necessary lifestyle and dietary advice (we also have a naturopath that can help). We provide acupuncture with all consultations and weekly herbal medicine prescriptions. Apart from that we are open ears and want to hear from you and how you are going. We understand it can be a difficult and anxious time for couples, and we are here to provide you with a great deal of care!
Acupuncture and Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a beautiful and very special time in a woman’s life. Whether a woman’s first pregnancy or one of many, each experience is unique and specialised, natural drug free treatments with acupuncture can be provided during this time.
For over 3000 years Traditional Chinese Medicine has promoted specialised treatments for women during pregnancy and in post-partum recovery and today this care is becoming increasingly popular and used by acupuncturists and specially trained midwives all over the world.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective form of health-care to alleviate many of the physical discomforts experienced during pregnancy. Acupuncture can also help new mum's prepare thier body, mind and emotional self so they are as ready as possible for the birth of thier baby and for an efficient post-natal recovery.
At Balmain Natural Therapies, we specialise in acupuncture for relieving many of the discomforts experienced during pregnancy and also provide specialised pre-birth treatments for an efficient delivery and recovery.
