Back pain is common in almost half of pregnant women. It occurs due to the changes in the mother’s centre of gravity which causes strain on the lower back [8]. The pain often worsens during the third trimester due to the increased weight of the baby and hormones. This can cause discomfort and affect sleep, work and family related activities.

The pain doesn’t have to be tolerated as there are remedies that can help ease it. Acupuncture is one such remedy and can help relieve this pain at this stage of the pregnancy journey. Not only will it help manage the pain but it will also prepare you for labour and delivery.

Pregnancy Acupuncture, how does it work?

Acupuncture for pregnancy pain relief involves the use of thin needles to stimulate certain points. These points correspond to nerves which are deeply seated in the body. The needles activate nerves which in turn stimulate the release of brain chemicals. One of the chemicals is endorphin which interacts with receptors to reduce the perception of pain and provide an analgesic effect.

Acupuncture also boosts blood circulation and helps relax the body which can provide relief from a wide range of pregnancy problems and aids in a smoother delivery for baby.

Pregnancy Acupuncture, calms and rejuvenates

Apart from having acupuncture for pregnancy back pain relief, there are many other benefits associated with acupuncture. It helps ease other symptoms that may occur during 3rd trimester including constipation, hemorrhoids, headaches, and sleep problems.

Pregnancy also comes along with stress. The mother may experience anxiety and worries about labour, delivery, and baby. Acupuncture can help alleviate such stress, rejuvenate the expectant mother, and provide a calming effect. And of course, it can increase the opportunity of a smoother labour.

    Acupuncture during Pregnancy

    The amount of Acupunture sessions required during pregnancy depend on signs and severity of the aches. When it comes to labour induction, this is most effective when started around 36 weeks gestation.

    We may advise having acupuncture once or twice a week depending on the individual. During the session, our qualified practitioner will assess you and conduct an in-depth evaluation.

    Doctor Amena will then start the session by inserting thin sterilised needles in a specific point. During the treatment comfort is critical, we make sure that you are well supported and relaxed without any strain on your belly and baby.

    You are in safe hands

    Acupuncture poses minimal risks or side effects if done correctly. During the third trimester, there are specific acupuncture points that are stimulated.

    It’s important for pregnancy pain treatment to be done by a professional since some points can induce labour hence care must be taken not to stimulate these points before 36 weeks gestation.


    The best acupuncturists are those who are experienced, licensed and have the utmost expertise. Having all these aspects combined with a comprehensive approach, effective care, and excellent client service care.

    Amena Wellness Clinic is the ideal place to get acupuncture services and other traditional Chinese medicine. We guide you with expertise so that you have the opportunity to enjoy a smooth, low risk and comfortable pregnancy.
