Acupuncture for Facial Paralysis/Bell's Palsy


Facial Paralysis is a disorder also known as "Ball's Palsy" ,in which the facial muscles of one side become (usually suddenly) weak or paralyzed. The facial nerves of one side are damaged and are unable to function properly.


How does acupuncture work for Facial Paralysis /Bell's palsy?

According to Chinese medicine, this disorder is ascribed to an obstruction disrupting the flow of circulation caused by pathogens invading the channels traversing the face. These obstructions prevent the vessels and muscles from receiving the necessary nourishment.
The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture thus helps to correct imbalances in the facial energy and circulation.


Course of treatment

Early treatment is important to avoid permanent damage to the nerves. There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
