Acupuncture has been used for relief of acute illness, like pain, dizziness and vertigo in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for over five thousand years. It is considered one of the best and permanent treatments for vertigo.
Vertigo is a specific type of dizziness that refers to a sensation of spinning, as if the room around you is moving. You might feel like you’re leaning to one side, or about to fall over.
The resulting biochemical changes after acupuncture therapy tend to influence the body’s homeostatic mechanisms, thus promoting physical and emotional well-being. Stimulation of certain acupuncture points have been shown to affect areas of the brain which are known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress
Treating Vertigo With Acupuncture
Reports and research show that acupuncture is an effective alternative treatment for vertigo.
Science has concluded that, from the very first acupuncture session, patients report significant improvement in their symptoms, and over the course of treatments, the improvement becomes more noticeable and more permanent.
