Kundalini House has a team of professional and passionate practitioners to help guide and look after you during your pregnant months and beyond.

Chinese Medicine Acupuncture & Herbs

Chinese Medicine Acupuncture has been used in pregnancy for centuries and can work to optimise health and reduce some symptoms. It can assist with increasing circulation to the uterus and strengthening the immune system. This is such an important time and Acupuncture can help to relax you and release unwanted in the body.

There is increasing evidence to suggest Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture can help with the management of a number of different conditions during pregnancy.  Please speak with one of our Practitioners of staff about how we can assist you.

Pregnancy can be a joyful time but can also be unexpected or trigger past experiences or birth trauma. At Kundalini House we have experienced practitioners who can work with you to help with issues as they come up, as well as anxiety or pre and post-natal depression. Acupuncture can help to regulate and calm you during this time.

Our practitioners are experienced and passionate about pregnancy and can work with your Obstetrician or midwife to help you to achieve a safe and healthy pregnancy.

Chinese Herbal Medicine
We also offer Chinese Medicine Herbs during pregnancy, using formulas, which have been used for centuries for pregnancy. Our practitioners are experienced and qualified to prescribe the right formula for you. We use organic herbs where possible and our granules have been tested for heavy metals. But we understand that some people prefer not to use herbs during this time, which we are happy to comply with, please let your practitioner know during the start of your appointment.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy is safe and effective during pregnancy. With specialised rolling techniques, which create positive and effective change in the body. Bowen can help with alignment during this time as well as working with sensitive soft tissue around joints. It is especially effective with pelvic instability, jaw pain, headaches, back pain, sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome.

We recommend a Bowen treatment at 33 weeks to ensure optimal fetal position at this time. As ensuring that your pelvis is aligned and well positioned will help the baby’s head engage correctly.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnobirthing allows you to experience your baby’s birth in harmony, allowing the process to be a flowing, natural, experience.

Learn how to:

  • TRUST

your body and the natural process

  • USE

the power of the breath and hypnotherapy techniques to deeply relax and connect with your body

  • ALLEVIATE

the physical and emotional pain often associated with birth

  • VISUALISE

connecting deeply with your baby and the process

Hypnotically prepared births have shorter stage 1 labours, less medication and more spontaneous deliveries. Hypnosis has been proven to significantly reduce pain and fatigue during labour and women have quicker postnatal recovery. Hypno-birthing teaches you to use the power of the breath to control fear and pain. It teaches deep connection with your body and your baby. It encourages further release of your relaxin hormone.

Learning these Endorphin triggers enhances flexibility and creates an easier experience. Hypno-birthing gives you the ability to have a powerful connection with your baby – and to use this connection technique – visualising your baby’s journey through the delivery. Your body automatically forms your baby from the moment of conception for you, from you. Naturally it has the ability to automatically open, relax and deliver your baby safely and smoothly into your arms.
