Health Issues/Symptoms Connections
Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for morning sickness. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "morning sickness" is rarely designed with the resulting "morning sickness" exclusively in mind.
For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
When developing an acupuncture protocol a practitioner is very often focusing on the causal diagnoses in Chinese Medicine terms, not on the condition itself. A potential range of underlying factors and approaches for morning sickness are described in our acupuncture protocol pages - "acupuncture for morning sickness - treatment protocols ", "acupuncture for pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum issues ", "acupuncture for pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum issues (1st and 2nd trimester) " .
The Tom Tam/Tong Ren Therapy system can be applied via energy healing/medical qi gong methods as well as an acupuncture component. The acupuncture aspect is generally utilized in combination with more standard TCM diagnostic approaches. For the specific points/areas that would generally be utilized in someone experiencing "morning sickness", please read "Tam Healing and Tong Ren Therapy for Morning Sickness ".
