Some pregnancy related information for you –

Common problems arising during pregnancy

Your body has a great deal to do during pregnancy. Sometimes the changes taking place will cause irritation or discomfort, and on occasions they may seem quite alarming. There is rarely any need for alarm but you should mention anything that is worrying you to your maternity team. Below you will find some common discomforts that women can have at various stages of their pregnancy including cramps, headaches, stretch marks, swollen ankles and varicose veins.

Morning sickness

Morning sickness is a common symptom of early pregnancy that usually goes away by the end of the first three months. Morning sickness or nausea (with or without vomiting) can happen at any time of the day and is caused by changes in hormones during pregnancy.

Backache in pregnancy

During pregnancy, the ligaments in your body naturally become softer and stretch to prepare you for labour. This can put a strain on the joints of your lower back and pelvis, which can cause backache.There are several things you can do to help prevent backache during your pregnancy.



Dealing with fatigue during your pregnancy

Feeling tired and hotter than usual is quite common during pregnancy. Many pregnant women also feel faint and this is due to hormonal changes.

Headaches  during pregnancy

Many women find that they experience headaches and indigestion at various stages of their pregnancy. Making changes to your lifestyle, like getting plenty of rest and maintaining a healthy diet can help improve some of the symptoms.Acupuncture birth cairns

The beginning of Cairns Acupuncture –

This is a story that started in Victoria, went all over the world and came back and landed in Cairns –

After Graduating from her Bachelor of Health Science – Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture (with honours!!)  Tanya Galvin opened Synergy Acupuncture clinic in 2002 in Shepparton, Victoria.

In 2008  Tanya traveled the world working as an Acupuncturist, hypnotherapist, kinesiologist, spa therapist and Massage therapist on Cruise Ships around the world for Royal Carribean and Princess Cruise lines.

After five promotions to bigger and better cruise ships as a reward for doing a great job she decided to settle back in Australia.

Cairns Acupuncture was born….Tanya now uses all her treatment modalities to run a successful and busy clinical practice!

What is Acupuncture

Pregnancy Acupuncture Cairns

Acupuncture is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, along with Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (orthopedic massage) and Qi Gong (meditation and energy healing.)

With a history of almost 3000 years it is still used extensively today to treat literally millions of people around the world.

Acupuncture affects the physiological functioning of the body by the insertion of fine needles into particular reflex points all over the body.

How does acupuncture work?

Medically acupuncture works by regulating carious systems in the body – hormonal, nervous, immune, circulatory, muscular etc.

In traditional Chinese Medicine theory, acupuncture regulates the flow of qi (pronounced chee), a type of unseen energy or electromagnetic force traveling in a system of channels which connect acupncture points to tissues and organs.



Does it Hurt?

Most people are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable acupuncture therapy is, often falling asleep on the treatment table. The needles are generally between 0.2 and 0.25mm in width. Five of these fit in the bore of one hyperdermic needle….they are as fine as a human hair!

They are inserted quickly to minimize skin pain, and when correctly stimulated, there is a feeling of tingling, mild cramping or an electric sensation at the point.

How deep the needles are inserted varies from a few millimetres to a couple of inches or more depending on the size of the patient and where the point lies on the body.
