The best time to get acupuncture depends on what you’re seeking care for. If you are wanting to start a family, I highly suggest getting acupuncture immediately, before trying to conceive on your own. Acupuncture increases your chances of conception, but also makes the whole process more enjoyable by helping to reduce your stress and anxiety around starting a family. I highly recommend continuing with acupuncture throughout pregnancy. I tend to believe that in your second trimester, unless you have a specific ailment or issue, you can take a break as that time is considered the golden period during your pregnancy. However, it is extremely important to proceed with acupuncture throughout your third trimester and during the fourth trimester, which is also known as the postpartum period. Continuing with acupuncture treatments postpartum helps with regaining your strength and helping with nursing as well as the stresses and anxieties of being a new mother.
In general, with all other ailments, as soon as you feel slightly off, you might not know exactly why, but that feeling of being “off” means that there is some sort of imbalance in your body and your body is trying to send you a message. Acupuncture is extremely effective in balancing your mind, body and soul, improving digestion, sleep, mental clarity, emotional well-being, sexual drive and ridding your body of most pain.
Acupuncture has always been known as a preventative medicine. Remember that when dealing with your own health, it is very wise to avoid getting sick because it is much easier to avoid getting sick rather than curing an illness. Disease is dis-ease and acupuncture works wonders on putting your body in-ease.
