30 weeks Pregnant Patient Resorts to Traditional Acupuncture

G’Day and I hope it is or has been a good one for you,

Virginia described it as feeling like her upper right abdomen was tearing apart, her gynecologist had no answer other than for her to grin and bear it.

She arrived at clinic craving for relief from this extremely debilitating and painful condition.

At 30 weeks pregnant Virginia was beside herself with pain and discomfort, fearful that the remainder of her pregnancy was going to be purely a matter of survival.

Up until this point she had experienced absolutely no problems with her pregnancy.

I gently placed needles (1 – 2mm only) in Conception Vessel 14, St.21,Liv.14 and Governing Vessel 20. I also performed a Liver Root Treatment Liv.8 – Ki.10

5 days later she has returned to clinic and as I write this post is resting contentedly on the treatment table , warm n cosy and very much at peace with herself.

She reported that her condition worsened slightly in the first 24 hours after treatment but had subsequently resolved to the point where she described her condition as 1000% better.

Virginia is one of the many reasons that I love practicing Traditional Acupuncture.

Catchya later,

    Hey Al,
    I am enjoying your shared clinical experience very much, it rocks on the support front, Thanks!
    On the topic of pregnancy…a client of mine who had her little girl 2 months ago was born with a strawberry hemangioma on her right pinky toe. It is a birthmark that initially distorted the pinky toe. Now 2 months down the track of life the toe is very puffy and red, full of blood, but no longer distorted(which is great, as the doctor was was aiming at cutting it off…mmm.)My thoughts are to take a few drops of blood from the toe, hoping to ease the swelling and pressure from it….any ideas out there would be much appreciated. Thanks…Tashi

    Hi Tash,
    Thanks for your comments, much appreciated.
    I think it would be ok/good to bleed a couple of drops from the little one’s affected toe.
    Just make sure hygiene is optimal, of course.
    I did this very successfully on my children when they were very young.
    Different condition (Lung), results were nothing short of brilliant.
    Have a good one Tash ,
    Please update us on the clinical outcome.
