Pregnancy Support

If becoming pregnant has been a long journey involving many medical interventions, then the next few months are a time to relax and let nature do her job. It is a time to cultivate and support good health and prevent illness, to nourish, slow down and take time to yourself.

However, should any minor pregnancy disorders develop, Chinese medicine can be a useful remedy and drug-free treatment. During the first trimester, acupuncture can support pregnancy following IVF/natural conception, calming the mind and helping manage any morning sickness or fatigue.

Towards the end of pregnancy, acupuncture and yoga practices help prepare you for childbirth, putting any of your anxiety at ease, and build energy reserves for the post-natal period. Moxibustion and yoga can correct breech or posterior baby positions. For those of you who have premature rupture of membranes or who are scheduled for a medical induction, acupuncture can be used to encourage the start of labour.

Partners/support persons can learn how to use acupressure points for pain relief along with positions to support you during labour.

I had been trying everything to bring on my labour. I had been walking loads and Noeleen explained that my energy was low and advised that I rested more as it was vital that I had enough energy for my labour. The treatments were brilliant and very relaxing. After 3 sessions and 8 days overdue I gave birth to my beautiful gem. Her advice was brilliant and the acupressure points for my labour really helped…I didn’t need any drugs!!
Thank you,

Tailored to You

Using a holistic approach, together we will craft a treatment plan tailored to suit you, putting you back in control of your health and wellbeing. I will guide you through a synergy of integrative strategies including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, bodywork and self-care practices based on my 5 pillars (Food, Move, Thought, Breathe and Rest), treating the root of any underlying issues and supporting your body’s own self-healing abilities.

How It Works

Chinese Medicine views the processes of the body as an energy system. Health and wellbeing rely on the smooth and dynamic flow of Qi (energy) through the body through a series of meridians/channels beneath the skin. Treatment aims to restore the smooth flow of Qi correcting imbalances such as deficiencies, stagnations, and excesses. It improves bodily functions and promotes the natural self-healing abilities of your body.
