Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine has traditionally been used to help with bell's palsy for hundreds of years.
It is always best to treat as soon as possible and as often as possible in the early stage. In China it is not uncommon to treat this condition one to two times a day. Acupuncture points are used away from the site of injury so we know we can't make it worse. These points are designed to help reactivate and stimulate healing in the affected area. Needles are used alongside the client trying to move the affected area. Often improvements are seen on the table with the goal of getting the client back for another treatment while they can still notice those improvements, with the hope of continuing that improvement. It is always a case by case basis so please call or book in for an appointment so we can assess your case.
