Happy Baby Pregnancy

Pearl Iridescence 31.jpg

Through my studies in yoga and Chinese Medicine, I learned the importance of supporting pregnant mothers. My teacher, Yogi Bhajan, taught that during pregnancy, the foundation of the child’s unconscious mind is forming. This is why it’s so important for every pregnant woman to experience a calm, meditative state of mind on a regular basis, along with support from her community.

A healthy, happy, and calm mother has the ability to bring a healthy, happy, and calm child into the world, and this is how we create a healthier society.

In addition to the care of your doctor and/or midwife, regular acupuncture treatments throughout pregnancy are an excellent source of holistic, loving care for both mother and baby. My treatment space is designed to promote relaxation, healing, and support during this special time in your life.

Pregnancy changes the body in many ways. The process of supporting the development of a new life can be challenging for expectant mothers. Many will experience a variety of physical and emotional effects over the course of their pregnancy, from digestive issues to disordered sleep. Incorporating regular acupuncture treatments can support your body and mind throughout each stage of your journey, helping you maintain optimum balance. And the benefits of acupuncture go beyond relieving common discomforts associated with pregnancy—regular sessions can also reduce your risk of miscarriage, assist with easier delivery, and facilitate your transition into motherhood once your child is born.

I am so happy my path crossed with Krystal’s! She has been so incredible in helping me get more sleep throughout my pregnancy. I not only view her as my acupuncturist, but as a mom herself, someone I can share my feelings and thoughts with about motherhood. She listens, provides insightful advice and tips I can use throughout my pregnancy to help get through the tougher times. I highly recommend seeing her during your pregnancy to help with any ailments you may have.

When I first sought out Krystal’s services, I was 30 weeks pregnant and looking for a way to support myself and my baby for the remaining duration of my pregnancy. My experience with acupuncture was minimal, having received it no more than a couple times in the past for anxiety. Krystal’s warm and nurturing presence put my soul at ease. I immediately felt at home. Her treatment room became a familiar sanctuary; a weekly retreat where I could rest and deeply connect with the new life growing inside me.

Krystal does more than just acupuncture. She holds a sacred space as a receptive listener and a mindful communicator, which allowed me to open up and dig deeper into my own subconscious. After just a few consecutive treatment sessions, I felt a transformation not only physically, but also on a deep soul level. There is no doubt she helped prepare my mind, body and soul for the transition into motherhood. I will be forever grateful for her skilled services and support throughout that special time in my life.

These are just some of the issues I support expectant mothers with in my practice:

First Trimester:

  • Nausea
  • Heartburn

  • Constipation

  • Headache/migraine

  • Exhaustion

  • Mood swings

  • Happy Baby Point* to clear fetal toxins

Second Trimester:

  • Edema (swelling in feet, ankles, hands, etc.)

  • Body aches and pains

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Happy Baby Point* to clear fetal toxins

Third Trimester:

  • Hemorrhoids

  • Trouble sleeping

  • Breech babies

  • Preparing baby for labor

  • Labor induction

Postnatal Care:

  • Healing after delivery

  • Postnatal depression / anxiety

*The Happy Baby Point (also known as Beautiful Baby) is a single acupuncture point that, when activated, helps minimize the transmission of toxins from mother to baby. I recommend this treatment at the end of the first and second trimesters to increase your baby’s overall health and resistance to illness.

Receiving acupuncture treatments from Krystal Kinnunen was the best part of my pregnancy and my transition into being a new Mother. Krystal’s talents reach far beyond her expertise as a Chinese Medicine practitioner; Krystal’s warmth and compassion create an environment for optimum healing and transformation. Krystal walked with me through my journey of pregnancy, a traumatic birth, and postpartum healing; she did so with keen awareness and deep love that shaped my experiences into something positive and transformative. From pregnancy induced heartburn to navigating the psychological impact of an emergency c-section and sleep deprivation, Krystal used her vast knowledge and powerful, compassionate healing abilities to help me reach a level of wellness that would have been unattainable without her by my side. I cannot say enough about the impact my experience with Krystal has had on my life; I feel truly blessed to have walked with her on my journey and I would urge anyone to begin their journey of healing with Krystal.
