Postpartum Acupuncture

The Golden Month

The first 4 to 6 weeks after giving birth are important days in your life as a new mother, as your body recovers from great physical stress and returns to your pre-pregnancy state of balance and vitality. During this Golden Month, it is important that your body replenish its depleted blood supply and energy.  Chinese Medicine strongly advocates for a new mother to stay in bed during this time, a practice which most western women find challenging. For this reason, I will assist you in creating your own personal wellness support system so that you can receive the mothering that you yourself need as a new mother.

During your Golden Month Treatments, which take place in the comfort of your own home, I will help ensure that your:

  • physical recovery is faster
  • emotional ups and downs are more manageable
  • milk supply is increased
  • general health is improved overall, allowing you and your child to experience more relaxation and intimacy
  • treatment sessions include Mayan Abdominal Therapy

I will also help treat in my office the following common postpartum symptoms:

  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • A compromised immune system
  • Postpartum depression
  • General overwhelm
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia

Lactation

Acupuncture reduces inflammation, and stimulates prolactin, a hormone essential to healthy milk production. In this way, it ensures

  • An increased milk supply
  • Improved milk flow
  • Prevention and healing of mastitis
  • An improved ‘let-down’ response
  • Relieved breast, back, and arm soreness
  • Fewer stress hormones in your baby’s milk supply

To schedule your Golden Month treatments or Postpartum sessions, email me at: hello@carinecamara.com.  I look forward to providing you with postpartum medicine that meets the demands of you heart, mind, and body during this special and exciting time as a new mother.

Emotional Acupuncture

Emotional acupuncture takes traditional needlework deeper by  incorporating esoteric acupuncture, a powerful healing system that will open your heart to more love and steer you toward an inner journey of self-discovery.

It is ideal if you are:

  • going through a transition in your life
  • suffering from heartbreak
  • experiencing constant stress
  • challenged by addiction or mental imbalance

Acupuncture does not create love or anything that is not already within you. Rather, it removes emotional barriers, giving you more freedom to focus on your dreams, your family, your happiness and your love.

Why Love?

Love is the most powerful healing energy in our world. Having an abundance of love energy for yourself and others will transform your health and your life.

Why focus on emotions?

Emotional traumas lie dormant as energetic barriers that have a profound effect on your physical body.  In addition, negative emotional toxicity creates stagnant energy, which often results in disease and chronic pain. By releasing emotional blockages, acupuncture will assist in pushing out encapsulated pockets of pain and trauma, and will dramatically improve your body’s natural energy flow and ultimate health.

How does acupuncture change your state of mind?

Much like meditation, acupuncture relaxes your central nervous system and helps to create a space between your thoughts. The result is increased self-awareness and a shift of perspective on life’s problems.
