More about us
Holistic Care After Birth

Following birth, being your healthiest physically, emotionally and spiritually is vital for both mother and baby. At Eastern Healing we provide women in Joliet, Wheaton and throughout the Chicago area with postnatal support to empower wellness and identify any issues that could impact you or your baby.

Postnatal issues can include:

  • Postpartum recovery
  • Milk production
  • Postpartum depression
  • C-section scars

Acupuncture works to balance the energy in the body while reducing stress and promoting healing. Many women find that acupuncture is effective for increasing milk production, promoting good sleep, balancing hormones and more.

Postpartum depression is common among women who have given birth; acupuncture and herbal medicine are useful in treating depression and reducing stress so that you can enjoy your pregnancy and be the excited, happy mother you desire to be once your baby has arrived.

Herbal medicine is often used in postnatal support, as herbs and other nutrients derived from nature are essential for reducing stress, promoting good sleep, balancing hormones and nutritional support. Emotional health is extremely important after giving birth. Chinese medicine works to promote wellness throughout the body and mind so that you feel your best and are capable of caring for your new baby without anxiety, depression or feeling overwhelmed. This is a time in your life that you should feel energized, healthy and happy!

At Eastern Healing we understand your desire to be the healthiest you can be after giving birth. You have created life, a life that depends on your physical and emotional well-being to thrive.
