Recovering after childbirth with acupuncture

In traditional Chinese medicine, birth is a shift from a "yang" state to a "yin" state, in which a woman loses an abundance of vital energy (qi, blood, essence). So it is understandable that recovery after the birth of your baby does not always go so easily.

The postpartum period is an essential time of rest and recovery, and gentle nurturing, not only for the baby but also for the new mother. Acupuncture can help ease the transition to motherhood and provide relief.
