Nausea Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for nausea. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "nausea" is rarely designed with the resulting "nausea" 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.

Within TCM, "nausea", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - blood stagnation, phlegm stagnation, spleen and stomach damp heat, spleen qi deficiency, stomach cold, stomach fire, stomach food stagnation, stomach yin deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.

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 nausea are described in our acupuncture protocol page - "acupuncture for morning sickness - treatment protocols " .

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:

    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 "nausea", please read "Tam Healing and Tong Ren Therapy for Nausea ".
