San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2012
Throughout the month of March, Remedy Acupuncture Clinic in San Francisco will celebrate Women’s Health Month by exposing women to the Traditional Chinese Medical approach for healing new mothers. The emotional nine months leading up to the birth of a child is filled with anticipation, physical changes, and preparation. By focusing on postpartum and the needs of new mothers, Remedy Acupuncture Clinic seeks to guide women on a path to regain their strength and make healthy decisions for both themselves as well as their child.
Western medicine educates expectant mothers on diet, exercise techniques, prenatal vitamins, and the medical preparations for childbirth. With a stronger emphasis on prenatal care and the first few days after childbirth, the needs of a new mother are often overlooked.
Ashley Callen, an acupuncturist at Remedy Acupuncture Clinic, specializes in women’s health. “More women need to set themselves up to take care of their bodies after child birth. This can prevent complications down the road like fatigue, lower back pain, and depression,” Callen said.
In honor of Women’s Health Month in March, Remedy Acupuncture Clinic will be opening their doors to the public, giving free consultations to anyone interested in learning more about how TCM can benefit their health. New moms will also receive free Chinese herbs (a blend of walnuts and black sesame seeds) with their first visit.
Traditional Chinese Medicine considers the fourth through sixth weeks after child birth a critical period for a new mother. During this time, women are given an opportunity to heal old injuries and rebuild both body and mind following the strenuous birthing process. This 3000 year old practice bridges the gap to the alternative medical field by bringing traditional knowledge and practices into the modern world.
Remedy Acupuncture Clinic practices Traditional Chinese Medicine through the use of acupuncture, herbal medicine, exercise, massage, and diet to improve the quality of life for their patients. They are located at 703 Market St., Suite 514 in San Francisco.
