Pregnancy is the most magical but also most taxing time for a potential mother. The second trimester is known as the "Golden Period". This is the time when the baby's heart beats, the baby kicks and even feel the emotion of the mother. Not just emotional stress currently but even the emotional baggage we all carry can be transferred and felt by the baby. There is an acupuncture treatment to remove this emotional baggage and give a baby a fresh start.
The treatment is called Beautiful Baby Point Golden Needle Treatment. The point is Zhu Bin (Guest House). It is located on the medial side of the lower leg at the lower end of the belly of gastrocnemius (Calf Muscle). This point is used for insomnia, anxiety and depression. It is used to quiet the spirit and clear the heart. Gold needle is used because it is pure, warming and tonifying.
Acupuncture is safe during pregnancy and can be beneficial for both the mother and the baby. But it needs to be done by a licensed acupuncturist. There are forbidden points that should not be done during pregnancy.
KMU Wellness provide this protocol for future mothers.
