Acupuncture Services

Dr Rainville has successfully completed a 300 hr/ 6 month course in acupuncture and has been incorporating it to a small extent in her practice, primarily to help stimulate the natural process of labor in women who are facing the prospect of induction of labor. This has been quite successful, and she intends on continuing to offer this.

Acupuncture is safe in pregnancy and there are many studies that do show that it is helpful in inducing natural labor. In the future, she intends on expanding acupuncture services to include infertility and menopause symptom relief.
