Postpartum Acupuncture


Testimonial– My husband and I had suffered two miscarriages which were devastating.  I had come to the clinic for acupuncture before and within 2 months was pregnant. My emotions were happy but terrified. I continued my treatments through the pregnancy and gave birth to a baby boy Loni. The second time I again miscarried and felt even more tired and stressed but I knew acupuncture could help. Weekly treatments began and I once again became pregnant within two months. I continued getting acupuncture for nausea and headaches with the pregnancy. Our little girl completed our family. Tara
