Post-Partum: The Fourth Trimester Plan
Congratulations new mommy on your beautiful new addition! Despite the huge focus during the first 3 trimesters, many moms forget the importance of the fourth and final trimester.
Postpartum acupuncture is essential for new momma’s healing. By starting our fourth-trimester plan here at OVA, new moms will be able to heal their bodies and also aid in postpartum depression that may come after your birth.
Who is the Calming the Shen plan for?
People who are constantly struggling with stress, anxiety, and tension.
People who struggle with chronic pain and don’t know why.
People who are currently taking medication for depression or anxiety, and who are looking to manage their symptoms naturally.
Why is Acupuncture Important for Stress and Anxiety?
Acupuncture at its roots aims to heal your body from the inside out. Acupuncture actually assists the nervous system to achieve a balance by alleviating your stress and anxiety symptoms by releasing endorphins (natural pain killer chemicals in the brain).
Acupuncture also improves overall blood circulation throughout the body and boosts the amount of oxygen in tissues, which results in the feeling of relaxation.
What Should I Expect With This Fertility Plan at OVA?
We bet you didn’t know that all those cookies and sodas you intake are actually causing your anxiety and stress to get worse?
This 12-week treatment plan will help you change your overall lifestyle and health. This plan works closely with Dr. Zakes to rid your body of tension and inflammation.
The best way to start getting rid of tension and inflammation in your body is by changing your diet and incorporating a personalized herbal formula to aid in your lifestyle change.
Education is a big part of the Calming the Shen plan. We provide our patients with nutrition guides and coaching to help them transition to a healthier lifestyle.
Each week, Dr. Zakes will tailor your acupuncture and bodywork protocol to the corresponding phase of your menstrual cycle. Our Mindfulness Coach will meet with you every two weeks to help you transition and implement the changes we are making.
