Dizziness is a term used to describe a range of sensations, such as feeling faint, woozy, weak or unsteady. Dizziness that creates the false sense that you or your surroundings are spinning or moving is called vertigo.

Dizziness is one of the more common reasons adults visit their doctors. It is one of the most challenging symptoms in allopathic medicine because no medication for dizziness in current use has well-established curative or prophylactic value.

Treatment of dizziness depends on the cause and your symptoms. If it is activated when moving from a sitting to standing or lying down to standing or anything that involves movement, there is a high chance that it is benign positional vertigo and can be treated at home using the Epley Maneuver. 

When seeking treatment outside of home care, it is important to get the correct diagnosis for which kind of dizziness one has and have a good idea of the cause. Cervical Vertigo is a common cause and Chinese Medicine and acupuncture appears to be a promising therapeutic approach for this type of vertigo. 

There are several research articles providing evidence of acupuncture treating dizziness and vertigo.  Acupuncture demonstrates a significant immediate effect in reducing discomforts both dizziness and vertigo.  

Acupuncture is painless. The tools are ultra-fine gauge, sterile, single-use needles.  Almost every single patient at As Designed Wellness in Dana Point, Orange County says it is a relaxing spa-like experience.  The whole treatment is slow, steady and gentle. It is a privilege to provide a healing service.
