Living with facial pain can be very difficult and is often excruating. Conditons like Trigeminal Neuraglia and Bells Palsey severly impact the quality of a person life which in turn leads to depression, weight loss and isolation.
Acupuncure can be effective is treating severe facial pain when often the only alternative is surgery.
Research has shown that acupuncture treatment can specifically help in the management of facial pain by acting on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry.
Research also has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular and digestive system. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, improve sleep, digestive function and sense of well-being.
The frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Some people experiance dramatic relief in the first treatment. For complex or long standing chronic conditions one or two treatments per week for several months may be recomended.
