Is This Treatment For You?
Are you in your first trimester of pregnancy? Feeling nauseous ALL THE TIME, wondering why they call it “morning” sickness instead of “all the time” sickness? Has your doctor suggested medications that you don’t want to take? If you answered Yes to these questions it’s time to try acupuncture.
Here are some quick facts about morning sickness. First, nausea typically continues throughout the day, not just in the morning. Second, morning sickness usually starts around week 6 of pregnancy and ends on its own around week 13. And third, acupuncture can resolve morning sickness at any time, usually within 3 to 6 treatments.
How It Works
Chinese medicine has a unique explanation for why pregnant women suffer from nausea and vomiting in the first trimester. We call it Rebellious Stomach Qi. The stomach’s energy is meant to travel downward.
Early pregnancy confuses the stomach. The stomach senses the growing fetus as blocking its downward path. So the stomach directs its energy upward instead, trying to accommodate it’s new neighbor. Upward stomach energy manifests as nausea and vomiting.
The Raleigh Acupuncture morning sickness treatment focuses on the stomach, helping the stomach get used to the fetus. The treatment “harmonizes” the stomach, allowing it to resume it’s qi descending function. The treatment works quickly and effectively. Once the stomach has “accepted” the fetus, the nausea and vomiting cease for good.
It’s All About Balance
Acupuncture is all about bringing the body back into balance. Something will occur in our lives that pushes our body out of balance, resulting in pain and discomfort. Our job as practitioners is to figure out what the imbalance is and then use acupuncture to correct it. When we do, the pain and discomfort go away.
As with all treatments, the needles used for acupuncture are all sterile and single use. They are hair thin and don’t hurt. The sessions are relaxing and rejuvenating.

What our Clients are Saying
Single best thing for morning sickness!! I’ve had four kids and used acupuncture every time. This practice is the best! They don’t drag out treatments. They get you better fast.
My first pregnancy went so easy. So I was surprised when I got so nauseous with my second one. Every smell made me sick and I didn’t want to eat anything. My mom found Raleigh Acupuncture. The practitioner told me it generally took 3 to 6 treatments to stop the nausea. She was right. After 6 treatments I wasn’t nauseous anymore and could eat again without trouble. I’m very pleased and would recommend them to any pregnant woman suffering from nausea.
When I was pregnant 6 weeks I got terrible nausea and vomiting. I could not hold anything down. I started losing weight after two weeks and my doctor put me on medications. But I was still vomiting every day and felt awful. I found Raleigh Acupuncture and they treated me three times. It totally stopped the nausea and vomiting. I stopped my medications, and the rest of my pregnancy had no problems. They said this was an easy thing to treat. I wish I had known about it from the beginning of my pregnancy.
