At the Light Family Acupuncture clinic, we are committed to your family’s health and well-being. Prenatal Acupuncture is an excellent therapy for managing symptoms brought on by pregnancy and labor.┬áRecent studies have shown that pain was lessened during labors where acupuncture and acupressure were used compared to when no treatment was provided. In trials with 704 women, fewer instrumental┬ádeliveries were needed in births where acupuncture was utilized during pregnancy. (Read more about this.)
