PREGNANCY RELATED CONDITIONS AND PAIN

 

Throughout pregnancy, various physiologic and structural changes occur within the maternal body that can disrupt normal bodily structure and function.

 

Acupuncture during pregnancy is safe. Prenatal Acupuncture can be used for such symptoms as:

 

  • morning sickness

 

  • heartburn

 

  • aches and pains (back, knees, shoulders, carpal tunnel)

 

  • depression

 

  • headaches and migraines

 

In addition, manipulative and massage treatments can alleviate musculoskeletal complaints that arise during pregnancy.

 

  • sciatica and leg pain

 

  • pelvic pain

 

  • mid back and neck pain

 

 

OTHER CONDITIONS

 

  • dizziness / vertigo

 

  • post-surgical pain

Neurofeedback(EEG) Mind Training

 

Meditation has been scientifically shown to reduce symptoms associated with stress, depression and anxiety as well as improve focus, performance and quality of life.

 

Muse: the brain sensing headband will elevate your meditation and brain training experience with real-time feedback on brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and more.

It gently guides your meditation through changing sounds of weather based on the real-time state of your brain. This allows you to obtain a deeper sense of focus and motivates you to build a highly rewarding practice.

HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES

 

Both western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine recognize two categories of headaches: primary and secondary. A primary headache is a clinical condition, not a symptom of another disorder. Primary headaches include tension headaches, migraines and cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are caused by other medical conditions such as sinus disease, allergies, dental disorders, head injury or brain tumors.

Acupuncture, joint and muscle therapies are used to effectively treat primary headaches, namely tension and migraine, which are the most common.

  • ligament sprain

  • muscle pain / muscle strain / spasm
