Health Tip of The Week: Acupuncture for Bell’s Palsy


In 2016, Angelina Jolie was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s Palsy is a form of facial paralysis that can result from nerve damage, and symptoms can range from slight weakness to complete facial paralysis. The condition affects about 40,000 Americans a year.

She credited acupuncture for a full recovery. Acupuncture is so effective at treating the condition when done in a timely manner. Most Bell’s Palsy patients are under stress and in a state of exhaustion at that moment and then get this condition. Exhaustion will cause Qi deficiency; Stress will cause Qi stagnation. Qi deficiency and Qi stagnation of facial area lead to facial paralysis. (facial nerve and muscle can’t do their normal function)

Stimulation of the appropriate acu-points through acupuncture treatments helps to restore sufficient, continuous and even flow of Qi .
