Acupuncture for Trigeminal Neuralgia:

The Most Effective Neuralgia Treatment

LASTING RELIEF from Facial Nerve Pain

Without Drugs or Surgery!



It's been called the most painful disease known to humanity.

One of our patients described it as "like having a lightning storm on my jaw 24/7."

The sharp, shooting, searing electrical pain of trigeminal neuralgia can be unrelenting, even with medications.

And many of the medications prescribed for trigeminal neuralgia can come with unpleasant side effects like dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, or even depression.

Fortunately, there are non-invasive, non-drug solutions for the pain of trigeminal neuralgia.

At Empowered You Acupuncture, we provide innovative medical solutions to complex neurological conditions like trigeminal neuralgia.

We have an over 90% success rate in getting trigeminal neuralgia patients out of pain!

The techniques we use blend the best of both Eastern and Western medicine. They are backed both by thousands of years of tradition and decades of cutting-edge research.

What You Should Know About Acupuncture for Trigeminal Neuralgia 

The first technique we use to treat trigeminal neuralgia is acupuncture.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in East Asia to address many kinds of health conditions. In addition to these millennia of tradition, it also has decades of modern research from around the world backing its use.


Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's built in healing abilities. Acupuncture has been proven to decrease inflammation, improve blood flow, and re-wire the brain's pain signaling network. It releases pain killing neuro-transmitters and provides long lasting relief from many kinds of chronic pain.


The effects of acupuncture are so powerful they can even treat the excruciating pain of trigeminal neuralgia!

In 2022, a systematic review and meta-analysis of 58 randomized controlled trials with 4,126 participants found that acupuncture is superior to medication in reducing trigeminal neuralgia pain.

Another study of 116 patients with trigeminal neuralgia found that acupuncture significantly decreased trigeminal neuralgia pain and also improved cognitive function and overall quality of life.

The relief from acupuncture is extremely long lasting. A 2017 longitudinal study of 60 patients confirmed that acupuncture outperforms medication in trigeminal neuralgia pain reduction, and that pain relief after a course of treatment was maintained six months later.


In our Orange County clinic, the effects of acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia relief are enhanced by incorporating botanical medicine into treatment. 

We use formulations of botanical extracts, such as corydalis, that have been used for thousands of years and are clinically proven to reduce pain, improve blood circulation, and reduce inflammation.

This combination of acupuncture and botanical medicine has an even more powerful pain relieving effect than either therapy by itself.

We use both of these natural methods together to treat trigeminal neuralgia, with outstanding results!

Acupuncture for Trigeminal Neuralgia Success Stories

Chinese Medicine for Trigeminal Neuralgia

​Using acupuncture and botanical medicine, we have helped countless people like you take back their lives from trigeminal neuralgia!

It's worth keeping in mind that acupuncture is not a Tylenol. A series of treatments over time are needed to help you achieve the pain-free live you're looking for. But with commitment and consistency comes lasting results:

"Life changing. So blessed to have found Empowered You. I have been receiving acupuncture for almost a year. I have Trigeminal neuralgia, headaches and neuropathy and I am 98% better now. It’s been almost a year. What I like most about Erica and Joshua is that they listen and really tailor each treatment to the individual person and issue. Always willing to share research articles and educational documents with me about my conditions and really work to heal the whole person. I highly recommend Empowered You."

"I've struggled with trigeminal neuralgia. I used to describe it as a 24/7 lightning storm on my face and jaw. I was prescribed multiple drugs but they really didn't do much for the pain, and gave me brain fog. I was offered a surgery but decided to try acupuncture first at Empowered You Acupuncture. I figured I had tried everything else, and I had nothing to lose at this point. It ended up being the best decision of my life! After a series of treatments and taking some herbs I had relief for the first time in years! I kept at it and now I am off the medications and have no pain! Acupuncture really works and Empowered You has my highest recommendation!" 

A Personalized Approach to Neuralgia Treatment

We don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to medicine. That’s why we design personalized treatment plans for each of our patients. No two people are the same, so why would we treat them as such?

​The number of treatments needed to resolve trigeminal neuralgia will vary from person to person. We consider many factors in creating a personalized treatment plan, including the severity of the pain, the area of pain, how long you’ve had it, what the underlying cause is, and other health conditions like hormonal imbalances that might be contributing.

​Based on these factors, we create treatment plans that are customized to a patient’s specific needs.


Our tailored approach and attention to detail are why we have an over 90% success rate in treating trigeminal neuralgia with acupuncture!
