To Do or Not To Do: The Forbidden Points in Pregnancy
By the end of this course, you will
- Analyse each of the forbidden points in depth according to the location of the point, the name of the point and the functions of the point.
- Know when each forbidden point is suitable for use during pregnancy and when it is not.
- Build a treatment principle in each trimester and for various conditions during pregnancy.
- Review and expand your knowledge about what is “forbidden” in Chinese medicine and the forbidden points in pregnancy in particular.
- Create treatment strategies for each of the three trimesters by understanding the energetic changes occurring during pregnancy, emphasising the different semesters.
- Work in a way that supports the changes in each trimester, including incorporating the “forbidden” points in those treatments.
Treating a pregnant woman carries with it a great responsibility. For this reason, many of us were educated to abstain from different manipulations in acupuncture during nine months of gestation, sometimes without properly explaining those bans.
Nevertheless, how come Sp-6 is forbidden in many modern texts but recommended for weekly moxibustion during the first trimester in Japan? And why is Bl-67 forbidden for needling but is the most common point for a breech position?
In our experience, some treatments that we must avoid in one patient will be essential and even critical for the continuation of pregnancy for another.
The truth is, there is no consensus either on the full spectrum of forbidden points or on contraindications during pregnancy treatments. The safety of acupuncture in pregnancy is still debatable. And we will continue this debate during this lecture and present basic treatment strategies in each trimester.
This course combines our two biggest passions – teaching about acupuncture during pregnancy and diving into the endless world of knowledge behind acupuncture points.
