"Acupuncture is a truly holistic approach to maintaining your health before, during and, after your pregnancy. The beauty of acupuncture treatments is its capability to regulate the body's energy. Along with herbal medicine, the experience of being pregnant can be enhanced as well as prevent problems from arising, as these techniques can balance the Qi that flows naturally through the meridians of a woman's body.
Listening is the key to early detection of any imbalance or disharmony that could be injurious to the mother or her child. My job is to work closely with my pregnant patient and her team of doctors, midwives and doulas to ensure proper and healthy treatment. I always believe that you are your best doctor. I am here to assist you on your path through pregnancy."
