Acupuncture During Pregnancy NYC

Acupuncture During Pregnancy NYC

At Yejee Acupuncture & Wellness NYC, our experts recognize the aches and discomfort that accompany a pregnancy, especially in the early stages. During pregnancy, most women experience headaches, nausea, morning sickness, lower back pain and other discomforts that can be debilitating at times. These discomforts are natural and to be expected, but that does not mean that there is nothing that can be done. The practitioners at Yejee Acupuncture & Wellness NYC use elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat all of the discomforts associated with a pregnancy.

The 3 essential protocols we use to treat ailments associated with pregnancy are: acupuncture, nutritional counseling, and moxibustion therapy


Acupuncture treats nausea and morning sickness by targeting specific acupuncture points across the body that correspond to the stomach and other vital organs to ensure they are in a healthy and undisturbed state. Acupuncture is also effective in treating headaches and migraines by reducing stress, which can also have long term benefits in other areas of the body such as skin care.

Nutritional Counseling

Our practitioners are experts in nutritional counseling and they understand the role a healthy diet plays in maintaining your body’s health. Our staff can help you determine what types of foods are the best for you as you go through your pregnancy.

Moxibustion Therapy

Moxibustion therapy for pregnancy involves rolling up a special herb called mugwort in a piece of parchment and then lighting the end and holding the lit end over a precise acupuncture point. The heat emitted from the mugwort stimulates blood flow in the area and clears up any blockage of Qi that could be causing ailments and discomforts.
