Acupuncture needles are so thin that many patients do not feel the needles when they are inserted by a practitioner. The needles usually remain in place for up to 20 minutes may be gently adjusted in the course of the treatment. The majority of patients do not report significant discomfort but instead report feeling relaxed and happy following their treatment.
Facial Acupuncture is a specialized form of cosmetic acupuncture where extra-fine needles (micro-needles) are inserted into the acupuncture points along the face to increase microcirculation, stimulate the lymphatic system and collagen production of the face. It helps to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, nourish the skin from the inside out.
Pre-birth acupuncture will encourage the mother’s body to naturally release prostaglandins to soften and ripen the cervix for labor, and oxytocin to trigger contractions, in return reducing labour time. It also helps to calm the mind to reduce fears and anxiety during labour, which speaks to great length. Aside from promoting a smooth vaginal birth, pre-birth acupuncture can also be helpful in post-date pregnancy. Pre-birth acupuncture is used during the final weeks of pregnancy, the 36th week until the end of the pregnancy.
