Raleigh Acupuncture Shingles Treatment
Learn about our shingles treatment in this video.
Also known as herpes zoster, shingles occurs when a dormant chicken pox virus is awakened. It causes a painful rash along the nerve pathway. The rash can appear anywhere on the body, although it typically strikes on the torso. Sometimes the virus will trigger pain with no visible rash. The chance of developing shingles increases with age.
Western medicine treats shingles with medications. Antiviral drugs are used to fight the herpes zoster virus. Corticosteroids are given to reduce inflammation and medication are prescribed to manage pain.
Acupuncture resolves shingles more effectively and without the need for medications. It works fast, has no negative side effects, and helps reduce long term nerve damage after the fact (residual herpetic neuralgia). How is this possible? Read on to find out.
How It Works
Chinese medicine understands shingles as a condition involving toxic heat, dampness and internal wind lodged inside the body. Acupuncture is used to resolve these imbalances, and in so doing, helps restore the body to its natural state of health.
In our acupuncture practice we have developed a highly effective treatment to speed the healing process and calm the inflamed nerves associated with shingles. Patients describe the process as miraculous.
What To Expect
The Raleigh Acupuncture shingles treatment is painless, relaxing and effective. After just one session, pain and itching begin to subside. Within three treatments, rashes are significantly reduced. There are no negative side effects with acupuncture.
If you have shingles, start your acupuncture shingles treatments right away. The earlier you begin, the sooner you will feel relief. If you are receiving Western medical treatment, you can safely get acupuncture at the same time.
The treatments are relaxing. We use sterile, single-use, hair thin needles. You hardly feel them. Once they are in, you simply rest. The needles do all the work. Many of our patients fall asleep during their treatments. You wake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

What our Clients are Saying
I got the shingles shot and still got shingles! Anyway, a friend had gotten relief at Raleigh Acupuncture for her shingles, so I tried it. What a huge difference. The first week, before getting acupuncture, my pain levels from the rash were 10 out of 10. As soon as I started my acupuncture, the pain decreased. They had me better within a few weeks. I was thrilled and am very grateful.
My wife had gone through shingles a few years back and had gotten relief from acupuncture. So when I got it, we called the next day and set up an appointment. The docs at Raleigh Acupuncture are now two for two, helping both of us. Thank you!
I developed a terrible case of shingles last year. The rash ran from back to front. It was burning, painful and very itchy. I was beside myself. I had been to Raleigh Acupuncture for knee pain and decided to call to see if they could help. Sure enough, they said come in immediately. I’m so glad that I did. I felt better after the first treatment. I ended up having about half a dozen treatments over the course of two weeks. They completely resolved my shingles. I strongly suggest you try acupuncture for shingles. It works amazingly.
