Acupuncture is a complex technique of Chinese Medicine that was developed thousands of years ago by Chinese physicians. It involves the insertion of hair-thin, sterile, disposable stainless steel needles at specific points on the channels (or meridians) through which Qi (energy) flows. Stimulating these points helps restore the normal flow of Qi in the body so the internal organs and the body systems can work together in harmony.
Acupuncture has been found to help with infertility, pregnancy & postpartum, postpartum depression/anxiety, and PTSD. Below we list licensed acupuncturists by city and state that specialize in maternal health.
