This needle insertion is usually painless and may just cause a tingling or heaviness at the maximum.
Acupuncture is quite beneficial for pregnant women. However, pregnant women need to select a highly skilled and knowledgeable acupuncturist since the stimulation of the incorrect points may cause an early labor.
Pregnancy is associated with a myriad of problems such as headaches, morning sickness, and nausea and bleeding. Researches have indicated that the foetus can be affected by toxins released by the mother’s body.
