Pregnant? Morning Sickness No More

Did you know that more than half of pregnant women experience morning sickness symptoms during pregnancy?

The World Health Organization (WHO), the leading authority on international health issues, has approved a list of symptoms that can be effectively treated by acupuncture; morning sickness is included on this list.

Acupuncture provides a pharmaceutical-free alternative to managing many common symptoms during pregnancy.
