Acupuncture for Relief of Trigeminal Neuralgia
Maryland Holistics provides safe and effective non-surgical treatment
for patients with trigeminal neuralgia. This is a rare condition which
results in intense facial pain. In our experience, patients with this
condition tend to recover fully within 6 acupuncture sessions. Our
method is to provide the final two sessions as a fine-tuning approach
after the condition has largely improved. Using this approach, our
patients improved reasonably quickly and without any reported
side-effects or recurrence.
It appears to us that the treatment of this condition with acupuncture
requires an acupuncturist with a high level of skill and attention to
safety. This is due to the sensitive anatomy of the affected area. In
our practice we use a combination of procedures which promote safety as
well as the highest level of treatment accuracy achievable with
Healthcare Tourism Option
For certain cases which are pre-qualified by phone, Dr. Windsor
is now offering a healthcare tourism accelerated treatment plan for
trigeminal neuralgia over a period of 12 days. This newly available
treatment schedule was designed for individuals who are outside of the
Baltimore-Washington area. In this way, the time away from home can be
significantly reduced compared to the 6-week treatment plan which we
have generally used for local patients.
The purpose of pre-qualification is to maximize the likelihood that the
prospective patient will be satisfied with the treatment outcome and
with their overall experience. Our serene, professional office is
located approximately 20 minutes from the Baltimore-Washington Airport.

"Acupuncture assists with many types of nerve inflammation and
fortunately it works in the cases of trigeminal neuralgia that I have
personally treated. Because this is a non-surgical treatment, there are
no surgical side-effects, risks, or recovery period with this type of
treatment. To my knowledge, my patients also did not require any
medications for the condition after the short course of treatment."
Dr. Eric Windsor, D.Ac.
