Postpartum Acupuncture

post-partum acupuncture

At the Light Family Acupuncture clinic, we believe in treating the whole family, including all stages of the birth and life process. We specialize in pregnancy and postpartum acupuncture.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to address postpartum symptoms, aiding in such things as hormone regulation, milk production, mastitis and depression. In a study of 150 pregnant women who were diagnosed with major depressive disorder, the group of women who received 12 depression-specific treatments of postpartum acupuncture over an 8-week period had a 63% response rate compared with 44% rate for women in the control groups who did not receive postpartum acupuncture. (Learn more about the study here.)

In addition to the conditions listed above, since 2003 Melissa B. Light has been helping women manage postpartum health issues such as:

  • Stress
  • Fatigue
  • Bleeding
  • Aches and pains
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Incontinence

We are standing by to treat your postpartum issues, as well as help you take time for yourself, at our acupuncture clinic. Questions or want to learn more? Contact us at (512) 775-4057 or schedule an appointment online. We look forward to seeing you at the clinic soon!
