BPPV stands for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, commonly known as vertigo, more commonly known as a really bad case of dizziness. This condition is pretty common, so you need to know that acupuncture can resolve it. The Raleigh Acupuncture BPPV Treatment will make your vertigo go away by correcting an imbalance in your body that’s causing phlegm to build up in your head. By resolving this imbalance we resolve the vertigo. It’s quite straight forward in Chinese medicine.
Raleigh Acupuncture BPPV Treatment – How It Works
I mentioned that vertigo is caused by phlegm in your head. That sounds like a bad cold, not vertigo. Actually there are two different types of phlegm in the body, substantial and insubstantial. Substantial phlegm is the the kind we all know, the stuff in our nose we get with a cold. But the body produces another form of phlegm, insubstantial or energetic phlegm, that can block orifices like the ears, and even the mind. Vertigo comes from phlegm blocking the ears. So, by resolving the insubstantial phlegm the vertigo will go away.
Another cause of vertigo is something we refer to in Chinese medicine as internal wind. You know about external wind, the stuff that blows outside. The ancient Chinese described internal wind as being responsible for dizziness. It is the root of other conditions as well, but for our purposes today know that vertigo often has a component of internal wind in the head. Acupuncture can disperse internal wind very effectively.
What To Expect
When you come for acupuncture suffering from vertigo, we will determine what’s causing your situation. It could be insubstantial phlegm, it could be internal wind, or it might be something else. Often it’s a combination of factors. We will then create a treatment plan of acupuncture points to correct the imbalances at the root of the problem.
The treatments themselves are very relaxing. And don’t worry about the needles. We only use sterile, single-use, hair thin needles. You will hardly feel them. And for extra sensitive patients we have special, extra tiny needles that you’ll be hard pressed to see (think extra hair thin).
Afterward your acupuncture session you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. We will probably send you home with some Chinese herbs to keep working on the treatment at home until your next visit. And within four to seven treatments your vertigo will be completely resolved.

What our Clients are Saying
I came back from a trip to the Caribbean with a terrible case of vertigo and nausea. I couldn’t sleep, couldn’t work, couldn’t walk straight. I had this throbbing headache all day long. It was driving me crazy. I tried acupuncture and in three sessions was completely cured! I was so impressed that I had them treat my back pain next. I only wish insurance covered the treatments.
I was diagnosed with dizziness and put on a medicine that made me more dizzy! My chiropractor said it was from my neck, but the adjustments didn’t help. So I tried acupuncture. Every time I bent down I would get so dizzy that I fell over. The doctor at Raleigh Acupuncture didn’t treat my neck. He said he was treating my organs to balance them and correct my water levels. I don’t care what he called it – it stopped my dizziness! I can bend over now without dizziness and can function like a normal person. They also got rid of my toe pain at the same time!
I had vertigo and dizziness for years. I run my own small business and it was starting to really affect my work. I had difficulty driving, and was starting to get nervous about getting into an accident at work. My vertigo was like the room spinning around, and the only way to make it stop was to close my eyes and lie down. I was also burning up hot, but never had a fever. My cousin went to Raleigh Acupuncture so I gave it a try. They treated me with little needles and gave me chinese herbs. I’m not kidding, this stuff really works. My vertigo stopped happening for the first time in years, and I even stopped feeling so hot. I get small bouts of vertigo now and then, but usually just a single treatment gets me better. I also understand why I get vertigo and what I can do to prevent it coming on. They were really good explaining how it worked, in a way that totally makes sense to me. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture.
