How It Works
When you come in for acupuncture to treat trigeminal neuralgia (TN), we conduct an intake exam to identify the exact areas of your pain. We then use hair-thin, sterile, single use needles in specific locations to heal the affected nerves.
Acupuncture is ideally suited for treating this condition. It is the only non-invasive therapy known to subdue overactive nerves. Our treatment calms these nerves, bringing lasting relief. From a Chinese medicine perspective, there are half a dozen possible triggers for this condition. We identify your Chinese medicine diagnosis and treat accordingly.
As we help your body restore balance, pressure is relieved on the nerves of the face. Pain is reduced as the nerves heal. Some of the points in your treatment are on the arms and legs. These points help balance your internal organs to allow the nerves to heal.
Other points are at the areas of pain on your face. They work directly to calm the nerves and reduce pain. The combination of points, which will be different for each patient, leads to long lasting pain relief.
Western medicine only offers medications, injections and surgery to treat this condition. None of these options is particularly effective, and all have negative side effects. Before trying these invasive therapies, give acupuncture a chance. It is more effective, less invasive and provides true healing to the damaged nerves responsible for your pain.
What To Expect
All needles are sterile, single-use and hair thin. You will hardly feel them. The treatments are very relaxing. Many of our patients fall asleep during their sessions. You will wake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

What our Clients are Saying
My dentist damaged a nerve in my face that triggered terrible trigeminal neuralgia. The pain in my face was way more than 10 out of 10. I could not think, could not work, could not sleep. I truly thought my life was over. But thanks to Raleigh Acupuncture Associates I am 95% better. It took three months of treatment, but it was worth it. My regular doctor had no solution for me. His pain medicine did not work. I tried an $8000 procedure of laser cutting, and that did not work. But acupuncture DID work. I’m telling you, if you have trigeminal neuralgia in your face, come to these guys. I love them!
I woke up one morning and started getting these excruciatingly painful shooting electric pains on the left side of my face. My wife took me to the emergency room and they said I had trigeminal neuralgia. They gave me some pain medicine, but a nurse there suggested I try acupuncture. She had this pain once and it was cured by acupuncture. She gave me the name of Raleigh Acupuncture. When I explained the situation they took me in the same day. After just one treatment I started feeling better. They saw me every day for six days, at which point the pain was completely gone. What a life saver. I strongly recommend getting acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia.
