Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have a history of over 3,000 years in helping women recover after childbirth, and can be extremely helpful for common postpartum conditions. Treatment is typically advised within the first six weeks after childbirth, in order to obtain optimal results.


Acupuncture can help with the following postpartum symptoms:

  • Insufficient lactation (not producing enough milk)

  • Mastitis (inflammation or an infection of one or both breasts)

  • Urinary incontinence after vaginal tearing

  • Fatigue/exhaustion

  • Pelvic pain, and pain/recovery after a C-section

  • Constipation and hemorrhoids

  • Postpartum depression and anxiety

  • Night sweats and hormonal imbalances

  • Uterine bleeding

Breastfeeding-Lactation & Mastitis

Acupressure not only improves milk supply, but also reduces fatigue and anxiety; and helps a mother feel less anxious, and enjoy breastfeeding. This is a sure-shot way to improve lactation and is also safe, simple, and effective.

For new mother's suffering from mastitis, acupuncture needling can provide instant relief from the pain of infection by releasing endorphins. Needling is also effective at reducing inflammation in the breast and clearing out blocked ducts.
