What you should know about acupuncture and pregnancy.

If you suffer from infertility or issues related to pregnancy there is an alternative to IVF and other medical procedures.

Were you aware that:

  •     7.4% of married women between the ages of 15 and 44 are infertile.

  •     About 75% of women experience morning sickness during pregnancy.
  •     More than 50% of women have back pain during pregnancy.
  •     Acupuncture has nearly 2,000 years of clinical history.
  •     Acupuncture is one of the most holistic systems of medicine available today.

How to choose an acupuncturist
Not all acupuncturists are created equal!

Acupuncture is one of the fastest growing modalities in the United States and more and more health and medical practitioners are jumping on the bandwagon.

A qualified acupuncturist has accrued over 3,000 hours of acupuncture and Chinese medicine education, which is between three and four years of schooling.

Unfortunately, more than 50% of acupuncturists in the US have a mere 300 hours of acupuncture training or less.

Only licensed and fully qualified acupuncturists are included on our site. To find a practitioner and get started on the path to optimal health and wellness, search our directory of acupuncturists.
