For some, the thought of a holiday cruise brings a feeling of dread, a fear of the usual nausea and vertigo. Acupuncture is helpful for those who suffer from motion sickness, and relieves its symptoms.
Nausea is a condition whose symptoms include discomfort in the stomach and often gives the sufferer an involuntary urge to vomit. A common cause of nausea is the body being in motion it can’t control (also referred to as sea sickness or motion sickness).
There are also other issues that can cause a person to feel nauseous, including food poisoning, dehydration, some medications (such as chemo), migraines, and vertigo. In a large number of cases, a stomach infection is to blame for the nausea, but in about 10% of cases, the root cause is unknown.
Acupuncture will treat nausea and vertigo often with immediate success. Depending on the causes, more treatments will be relevant. We will evaluate your history, your tongue, and your pulse energies to determine what more is involved to be treated. Emotions and diet come to mind, as well as other medical issues. And sometimes, it doesn’t just stop at feeling sick…most people classify vomiting as one of the more unpleasant experiences in life. Acupuncture can also treat this evil sister of nausea. Vomiting is not a stand – alone symptom, is just stands out! We need to look deeper into all the interrelationships of your physiology to treat underlying causes. Acupuncture is a holistic therapy, considering the whole body-mind complex when considering a single symptom — it doesn’t exist alone.
Often low blood pressure people are sensitive to altitude and motion sickness. That relates to an imbalance between the neurological and vascular systems. Acupuncture is a wonderful holistic therapy that looks into all the relationships that are important for generating these symptoms. We treat several meridians, with local point sites to the surface of the stomach area, as well as back points, and leg points. A complete history helps to uncover all of the factors that can be participating. The procedures are relatively painless, and can even be relaxing. It is true that immediate relief is so welcome!
