Acupuncture provides relief for morning sickness in pregnancy
Total years in practice: 5
24 year girl 3 months pregnant came to us acid reflux and morning sickness. She had been very irritable and experienced mood swings.
So I was advised to use Taiyin/Yangming, 8+1, or 4MM...have you had any experience treating this symptoms using one of this patterns.
I used the following points:
- one arm ashi on LI channel
- other arm: PC3, 4, 6
- one leg: Tong Guan/Shan/Tian, Zusanli
- other leg: Xijian, Taichong
Scalp points for ren (acidity)
In addition, I used Zhen Jing Dao Ma and ear Shen Me that helped improve her mood.
After 2nd visit, before needling when she push the area of pain (where the acidity is) she felt pain. After needling insertion there was no pain.
