The patient is a female with the age of 70s.
Her main complaint is dizziness.
She started feeling dizzy 3 days ago, especially when she was standing and sitting. She took prescribed medicine and felt better yesterday, but the dizziness got worse again today.
Right after the first treatment, she didn’t feel dizzy.
The next day she came back for the 2nd treatment, the dizziness decreased, but she still felt a little dizzy.
When she came back for the 3rd treatment in 4 days, she reported me that her dizziness had disappeared after the 2nd acupuncture treatment.
Based on the diagnosis, I mainly gave her the treatment to strengthen her Liver energy. Dizziness is often related to the weakness of Liver energy (Refer to Individual Acupuncture).
There were some pressure-pain points on her abdomen and between her shoulder blades, so I removed the pressure-pain with round-tip needles.
I also used an ear point for dizziness and after the treatments, attached a tiny gold ball like a seed on the point to keep it until the next treatment.
If you are suffering from dizziness even after you have tried various things, Cozy Acupuncture in Salem, MA is here to help you!

[CASE] Dizziness (vertigo)
A woman in her 50s complained about dizziness which started 1 week ago at the night when she slipped down. When she turned her neck to her right, she felt vertigo. When she looked at her cell phone to text, she experienced the similar vertigo. She also complained that she had pain in the back of her neck on her right side. Another complaint was right hip joint pain.
After one acupuncture treatment, the dizziness disappeared.
I diagnosed her as Liver Deficiency and strengthened her left Liver-8 (located at the knee joint) with Yin technique. Then I taped (not inserted) needles at some points on her back and retained a needle at each Dizziness point on her ears and let her relaxed for 10 minutes. After that, I treated her back with Teishin (Non-insertion needle) and asked her to lie on her back again and burned moxa (heat therapy) at her right Liver-1 (located below the nail of her big toe) for 15 times. At the end of treatment, I attached a press ball (a small gold ball) on her left Dizziness point.
After the treatment, she told me that her vertigo was less. I recommended her to have another treatment soon, but she reported me that 2 days after the treatment, her vertigo was gone and she didn’t have another treatment.
