our approach

how we provide relief from Trigeminal Neuralgia

At Weng’s Acupuncture & Herbs Clinic in San Diego, we harness the time-tested methodologies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to deliver relief to those suffering from the distressing pain of trigeminal neuralgia. As this condition specifically targets the facial nerves, we utilize acupuncture techniques tailored to calm these affected nerve pathways. By formulating individualized herbal blends, we strive to reduce inflammation, enhance nerve health, and target the underlying imbalances that may contribute to trigeminal neuralgia. For some patients, Tui Na massage might be beneficial, fostering improved circulation around the trigeminal nerve, thus promoting healing and pain alleviation.

Navigating Trigeminal Neuralgia: Your Questions Answered

Dealing with health issues, regardless of their nature, often leads to a myriad of questions and concerns. Understanding the root causes, the symptoms, and most crucially, the effective treatment options can sometimes feel overwhelming. Recognizing the need for clarity and guidance, we’ve assembled a list of frequently asked questions tailored to address common health conditions for the people of San Diego.

Trigeminal neuralgia, often dubbed the “suicide disease due to its excruciating pain, is a chronic condition characterized by episodes of intense, stabbing pain in the face, typically radiating along the trigeminal nerve. This nerve has three branches that conduct sensations from the upper, middle, and lower portions of the face to the brain. The condition can be triggered by routine activities such as chewing, speaking, or even a light touch.

If you are suffering from trigeminal neuralgia and are located in the San Diego, CA area, we urge you to book a consultation with our incredible staff. At your consultation, we will dive into the root cause of your symptoms, develop a results-based action plan, and assist you on your journey to a happier, healthier, and pain-free life.

The hallmark symptom of trigeminal neuralgia is sudden, severe, electric-shock-like facial pain, typically felt on one side of the jaw or cheek. These episodes can last for a few seconds to several minutes, recurring in rapid successions. Though periods of remission might occur, they tend to shorten over time. Over time, some may also experience a constant, dull aching pain accompanied by the sharp pain episodes.

At your consultation, we will dive into the root cause of your symptoms, develop a results-based action plan, and assist you on your journey to a happier, healthier, and pain-free life.

In the realm of Traditional Chinese Medicine practiced at Weng’s Acupuncture & Herbs Clinic in San Diego, CA, trigeminal neuralgia is often viewed as a result of blocked Qi or Blood, which disrupts the regular flow of energy and nutrients to facial nerve pathways. Acupuncture becomes a crucial tool in alleviating this, focusing on specific meridians that correspond with facial pain. Complementing this, our bespoke herbal therapies are designed to address the root causes, supporting nerve health and aiming to prevent further flare-ups. Tui Na massage, when appropriate, can assist in ameliorating circulation and tension around the affected areas, which can be instrumental in pain relief.

Turning to Traditional Chinese Medicine for trigeminal neuralgia offers a natural, multi-faceted approach that extends beyond symptom relief. TCM recognizes the body’s intricate network and works to rectify deeper imbalances that may contribute to the nerve pain. By integrating treatments like acupuncture, herbal remedies, and Tui Na massage, TCM not only aims for symptomatic relief but also focuses on enhancing overall facial nerve well-being, thus aiming to reduce the recurrence of painful episodes. It’s a pathway that champions balance, natural healing, and overall harmony.
