During pregnancy acupuncture is a great, drug-free, therapy which can help with anything from morning sickness to back pain, as well as helping to turn breech babies or helping to start labour naturally. Alex has great success with various pain conditions ranging from arthritis and sports injuries to migraines and frozen shoulders.
