Acupuncture during Pregnancy

If you are looking for a safe and effective treatment for any condition that can occur during pregnancy? Dave Shipsey has years of experience in treating pregnant women with acupuncture. Acupuncture effectively treats many of the common complaints that arise during pregnancy including morning sickness, breech baby, tiredness, acid reflux / heart burn and other conditions listed below. At Dan-tien we will help you to ensure that you are in the best possible condition to have a natural birth.

Pregnancy is a very special time in a woman’s life. It makes great demands on the woman’s body throughout the 40 week duration. Acupuncture and TCM are safe and effective ways of maintaining health and vitality throughout the pregnancy.

Acupuncture is a safe way to treat any complications that may arise, including:

  • Morning Sickness (Nausea)
  • Threatened Miscarriage / Recurring Miscarriage
  • Back Ache / Sciatica
  • Pelvic Dysfunction
  • High / Low Blood Pressure
  • Oedema / Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
  • Constipation / Haemorroids
  • Breech Presentations
  • Inducing labour / Pain relief during labour.
  • Stress


Throughout the pregnancy fatigue can be a major concern particularly in the first trimester and towards the end of gestation. Acupuncture helps to nourish the qi (vital energy) of the body and improve general health & vitality. It helps to prepare you for a natural delivery.


Within 24 hours of getting the acupuncture the relief was amazing (I had chocolate for breakfast the next morning). I never expected the improvement to be so significant or work so fast. Bye bye chemist, hello needles.
Thanks again for everything.”

Pregnancy Acupuncture- Pelvic Pain 
Dave treated me for acute SPD (pelvic pain) during the latter phases of pregnancy. I was on crutches from week twenty with it and in a lot of pain. I found the sessions great in helping me manage the pain with the added bonus of being very relaxing! Dave was very friendly, knowledgable and professional.
