Trigeminal Neuralgia & Acupuncture

Only the one got it can understand the magnitude of its agony. I am talking about trigeminal neuralgia and one has described it as off the chart painful.

We don’t get trigeminal neuralgia without reason. It certain suggest some underlying imbalance that is potentially serious if left untreated. However, the bottom line, as for this moment, is always the deliberating pain on your face there and now.

The good news is acupuncture does work really well to alleviate and heal your trigeminal neuralgia. According to the data from Shanghai Acupuncture Magazine, 97% of trigeminal out of 11,744 cases of neuralgia response positively with acupuncture treatment.

And I often see patients got immediate relief only after two or three acupuncture point stimulation. Comparing to the other treatment alternative of trigeminal neuralgia. Acupuncture has its unique advantage (see table 1.1 below.)

As you can see, acupuncture is a safe, effective treatment that not only alleviate your facial pain but address the underlying imbalance that cause the trigeminal neuralgia to begin with.

If you know somebody (or perhaps personally) suffering from trigeminal neuralgia , and if such person are open to the possibility of natural healing. I encourage him/her to setup an appointment with me in one of my three convenient locations. After all, some pain is simply optional.
