Pregnancy Care at Cosmic Tree
Pregnancy Massage and Reflexology
Massage during pregnancy promotes relaxation and deep breathing which even leads to greater circulation. Greater circulation improves baby’s oxygen supply and reduces water retention in the hands and feet. It also relieves stress on weight bearing joints and reduces fatigue, which helps to aid faster recovery of energy and muscle tone after childbirth, and reduce postpartum stress.
Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment to safely support your pregnancy. It is a preventative treatment which boosts the immune system and may minimise discomforts associated with pregnancy (morning sickness, mood swings, frequent urination, troublesome discharges, swelling, headaches).
It not only facilitates on a physical level, it also facilitates on a spiritual level, which is all part of the journey to motherhood. Reflexology makes you feel deeply relaxed by calming the nerves which is extremely important for your baby as we know that your baby feels what you feel.
Cosmic Tree recommends a combination treatment of massage with reflexology to soothe and support mothers during their pregnancies.
Acupuncture & TCM for Pregnancy
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture have long supported women’s health, fertility and pregnancy. Acupuncture is a great way to address women’s health concerns and is a natural way to promote fertility. Whether you are trying naturally, undergoing IVF or assisted conception, acupuncture is safe and effective. Once pregnant, acupuncture may also help with morning sickness, heartburn, miscarriage prevention, fatigue, anxiety, breech position, preparation for labour and natural induction.
Natural TCM herbal medicine may help to improve pregnancy conditions and restore health. It can also be used as a stand-alone, natural, drug-free treatment option to enhance fertility and treat both medically explained and unexplained infertility. It can also be safely used in conjunction with conventional fertility treatment and during pregnancy. All medicine prescribed is practitioner-only and manufactured to TGA standards to ensure it is of high quality and free from contaminants.
A combination of acupuncture and TCM herbal medicine may be recommended, depending on what will serve and support you most effectively. If you have never tried acupuncture or TCM and have concerns, please feel free to let us know – we aim to make your first experience pleasant and positive.
