Do you suffer from Bell’s Palsy? Bell’s Palsy is facial paralysis often accompanied by pain in the muscles of the face. Patients describe waking up in the morning with half of their face paralyzed. They are often unable to smile or close their eye. Unfortunately, this condition has no Western medicine treatment. The good news is that the Raleigh Acupuncture Bell’s Palsy treatment can completely resolve it.

Early Treatment Is Critical
Bell’s Palsy is a challenging condition because, for many people, it leaves their face paralyzed for life. Acupuncture is one of the few treatments available that resolves this condition. The patient should start acupuncture treatment as soon as possible for best results – ideally within the first few weeks.
Although we have had exceptions, it is more difficult to achieve full recovery the more time passes. One recent exception involved a woman who got Bell’s Palsy seven years prior, leaving her with some paralysis on the left side of her face. Acupuncture was able to resolve her condition by 80 percent. Ideally, patients start treatment within the first few weeks or months of onset.
How It Works
There is a simple, unique reason why acupuncture resolves facial paralysis. Western medicine has no cure for this condition. If you go to the doctor with Bell’s Palsy, they will give you an anti-viral and corticosteroid, then tell you to go home and rest. That’s the full extent of their treatment. After that, you will either recover or not – on your own.
When you come in for the Raleigh Acupuncture Bell’s Palsy treatment, we take a much more active approach to your care. You receive acupuncture once a week for the first four weeks, during which time we expect you to start responding to treatment. If you do, which happens in 90 percent of the cases, we continue to treat you weekly until you are better. If you don’t respond to treatment after four sessions, we will suggest other treatment options.
What Causes Bell’s Palsy?
Chinese medicine theory holds that external wind can get trapped in the body, bringing disease. For example, Bell’s Palsy can result from sleeping near an open window where the wind blows on your face all night. In most cases of Bell’s, patients were exposed to the wind on their faces for a prolonged period the day before the incident occurred. And wind lodged in the body is the primary cause of paralysis.
Acupuncture Resolves Bell’s Palsy
Luckily, Chinese medicine has a solution for expelling wind from the body to heal facial paralysis. At Raleigh Acupuncture, we have perfected a treatment that resolves most cases of Bell’s Palsy. It involves applying tiny needles to specific acupuncture points on the head and face and wind-expelling points on the body.
If you suffer from Bell’s Palsy and facial paralysis, don’t delay. Instead, come in for treatment immediately.
What our Clients are Saying
I woke up in the morning and could not feel the left side of my face. I could not close my left eye. I have been to several doctors and have taken different drugs. I have a little improvement but majority of the problem remained. Out of desperation, I called Raleigh Acupuncture to check out if they treat this condition. They said they have successfully treated this condition and encourage me to come in as soon as possible because the sooner I come in, the better. I came in that same day. To my surprise, after just the first treatment, I could close my left eye. That was huge for me. Because I did not need to tape my left eye shut when I went to sleep for the 1st time since this happen. And during the day, I did not need to keep putting in drops to moisten it. I continued my treatment with them. I got better and better. I started to have sensation coming back. I could drink water without spilling all over myself. I could smile. Anyway, I am 100% cured. If you have this condition, don’t wait, call them and get treated right away. It surely saves a lot of anxiety and struggles.
