Dizziness can come along with other illnesses and disorders and so the acupuncture may be targeted at the underlying imbalances. Vertigo is usually the chief complaint with no other underlying causes. It is characterized by intense dizziness, imbalance, tinnitus, and/or nausea.
The mechanism for the treatment of dizziness and vertigo is local needling to the scalp and around the ears and neck. When applied with electrical stimulation we see great results. The scalp regions we target are associated with the areas of the brain responsible for balance and innervation to the inner ear conditions.
