Acupuncture in Pregnancy


Traditionally, Acupuncture intervention during pregnancy has been avoided in the treatment of pain and associated musculo-skeletal dysfunction, either because of the risk to the foetus or to avoid undue adverse effects to the mother.

This is a two-day post-basic training course designed to introduce Practitioners to the safe use of Acupuncture whilst managing the pregnant patient. The presentations by the Tutors will be tailored to meet the needs of the students.

All participants must have completed a recognised Foundation Acupuncture Course.

The course requires ALL participants to receive and administer needling and participants should not attend the course if there are any reasons that prevent full participation. A Health Screening form will be sent to those applying to attend the course. This form must be completed and handed to the tutor on the first day of the course. The form will be kept confidential by the tutor.

Acupuncture in Physiotherapy

The Government's recent decision not to introduce statutory regulation [SR] of Acupuncture has a significant effect on Physiotherapists who wish to use Acupuncture within their clinical practice.

It has also caused tutors at ALIED, along with many other experienced Physiotherapist Acupuncture Tutors, to reappraise our affiliations.

Clinical Support

All students who have attended ALIED training courses may request clinical support from ALIED if they are having problems with a patient or with their clinical use of Acupuncture.

Simply E-Mail your query to ALIED and we will do our best to give you prompt, evidence-based advice on the problem you are experiencing.
