Acupuncture for morning sickness and pregnancy nausea
Acupuncture for pregnancy nausea has long been recognised to help by midwives and GPs alike. In fact some NHS services offer acupuncture for just this depending on the area you live in.
Travel sickness wristbands, which are often thought to double up as morning anti-sickness bands, work by putting pressure on an acupuncture point. The difficulty is, if you don't know exactly where that point is, the wristband will be useless. An acupuncturist will be able to accurately locate the correct area to apply pressure. They will also use needles to effectively stop nausea and sickness and often for mild nausea, only one treatment is required.
Patients with severe pregnancy nausea or hyperemesis gravadarum may require two treatments per week to keep their nausea at a more manageable level.
In my clinics I find that ladies undergoing fertility treatment who decide to continue with treatment after they fall pregnant usually don't suffer with morning sickness as my treatments will work to strengthen the digestive energies throughout previous treatments and will continue to do so in every treatment you receive to ensure that morning sickness doesn't become an issue.
