Do you suffer from dizziness? Or is it more intense, with a sensation of the room spinning? If so, you probably have VERTIGO. Nausea, headaches, and fatigue often accompany these conditions. If you struggle with either of them, come in and try the Raleigh Acupuncture dizziness treatment.
Raleigh Acupuncture Dizziness Treatment
Learn how acupuncture treats dizziness in this video.
How It Works
A handful of different imbalances can trigger dizziness and vertigo. In Chinese medicine, health conditions are rooted in internal imbalances at the organ level. So when you come for the Raleigh Acupuncture dizziness treatment, the first thing we do is identify those imbalances. We then use specific acupuncture points to correct them.
Acupuncture Resolves Dizziness
Every acupuncture treatment is custom-made for you to address your specific needs. So, for example, five people may come in complaining of dizziness or vertigo, yet their treatments might all be different.
This concept of individualized treatment in Chinese medicine is fundamental. It differs from Western medicine’s “one treatment” approach, where doctors prescribe one pill for everyone complaining of dizziness. Instead, an acupuncturist customizes the Raleigh Acupuncture dizziness treatment to provide the most suitable treatment to correct the root imbalance.
In some instances, the practitioner prescribes Chinese herbs to promote faster healing. We have a full Chinese herbal pharmacy in our clinic, and all of our practitioners are nationally board certified in Chinese herbal medicine.
The Case of the Dizzy Dancer
A few years ago, a woman came to our clinic complaining of dizziness that was worse when dancing. She loved contact improvisation, a type of modern dance, but was recently unable to participate due to her condition. Upon examination, we discovered that her tongue had a thick white coating and her pulse was slippery. Her pattern diagnosis was dizziness due to Spleen Qi Deficiency with Phlegm Accumulation.
We treated her with acupoints including ST36, SP9, SP3, and CV12 to strengthen her Spleen Qi and transform dampness. In addition, we prescribed the Chinese herbal formula Xiang Sha Liu Zen Zi Tang. Within three weeks, her dizziness resolved, and she returned to dancing. This treatment addressed her dizziness’s root cause and restored her health quickly and efficiently.
What To Expect
All needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. The acupuncture treatments are relaxing – many of our patients fall asleep during the sessions. Afterward, you will feel rested and rejuvenated.
Dizziness and vertigo respond well to acupuncture, and treatments are safe. In addition, unlike many medications, there are no adverse side effects.
Research and Case Studies
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.
