Pregnancy Acupuncture in Berlin
Our Pregnancy ACUPUNCTURE services
At our Midwife Clinic in Berlin pregnancy acupuncture is one of our main focuses at our Clinic. Acupuncture is an effective method when treating pain, chronic diseases as well as other conditions. Acupuncture is a healing art that originated in China thousands of years ago. Traditional Chinese medicine views the body as two opposing forces, yin and yang. When an imbalance occurs between the two, it blocks what Chinese medicine refers the flow of vital energy along internal pathways (known as meridians) in our bodies. During acupuncture, a practitioner inserts hair-thin needles through the skin at points along the meridians to correct imbalances and restore health.
Acupuncture by discomfort
Acupuncture can ease a wide range of pregnancy symptoms including back pain, morning sickness, depression, nervousness. heartburn, swelling in the legs, constipation, and more.
Acupuncture is one of the best therapies during pregnancy and when nursing as there are very few side-effects. While other forms of treatment require taking medications, acupuncture does not expose the unborn child or the mother´s milk to foreign substances.
In addition to acupuncture, nutritional consultations and natural healing methods can improve the pregnancy symptoms.
Birth preparation acupuncture
According to extensive medical studies, the latent phase during birth was reduced when the women were getting weekly birth-preparing acupuncture. Additionally other acupuncture points can be added in the treatment according to your individual pregnancy discomforts: i.e. back pain, water retainment, nervousness, insomnia. Birth-preparing acupuncture is being applied twice a week in Praxis Lemm. It starts in the 35th week onwards until birth.
“When we opened Praxis Lemm in Berlin in 2005 we were not offering birth preparation acupuncture. But it was requested so much that we introduced it to our clinic. The positive feedback we got was so overwhelming that we developed a programme which includes various relaxation techniques such as breathing excerises and acupuncture for discomforts. It is now regarded one of the top pregnancy preparation programmes in Berlin and we run it alongside our standard birth preparing acupuncture. The standard birth preparing acupuncture we practice at our clinic it is based on the method of professor Ansgar Römer from the University of Mannheim. ”
