Pregnancy can be very physically taxing. When you feel tired, this is a sign from your body's intelligence to stop investing energy "out there" and to slow down, close your eyes and allow energy to flow within. A regular acupuncture session during pregnancy can help you to connect to your Centre within, encouraging restoration and a state of calm.
