After I posted about using GV22 for excessive saliva, I had a client come in who had this in early pregnancy! (funny how that works).
Her symptoms were not anywhere near as severe as your client reported, but I tried out GV22, and it worked almost instantly! She was able to feel the difference with the saliva and a shift in sensation in the salivary glands.
I found the location that was tender with my finger, and then directed the pressure both forward (toward the nose) and back (toward the back of the head) to see which worked better. She was very clear that it was forward.
I added Ki6+27 and Sp5+9 (for nausea), then GB15-17 area also assisted with the saliva along with TW5 (L) for calming the vagal system. I added GB41 which didn’t make any difference for the saliva (as a shao yang Rx with TW5), but assisted with some lower back pain. St36 for the St channel, and Pc6 also for nausea, and partner for Sp Rx.
Hope that helps
