Acupuncture for Hair Loss
If you are experiencing hair loss, you’re not alone. Hair loss is a common condition that affects both women and men, after emotional stress, fever, and especially after COVID-19. You probably notice the hair loss after brushing your hair or showering. This is hair shedding. The medical name for this type of hair shedding is telogen effluvium. Sometimes more than the normal (usual) amount of hair goes through that shedding phase at the same time. This hair shedding can last a month or even up to almost a year before it stops. The American Academy of Dermatology association reports that most people’s hair regains its normal fullness within 6-9 months.
But unfortunately, stress after stress, our age, additional problems or illnesses make everything more complicated. The longer you wait to combat hair loss, the more hair you can lose.
BMW Acupuncture recommends not to waiting to seek help through acupuncture for hair loss because waiting may be costing your health and hair!
Step one of our treatment is to release emotional blockages (stress), and relax your body and mind.
We then focus on increasing blood flow and improving scalp circulation to stimulate hair follicles. We provide a topical (herbal) application to balance epidermal layers. Probiotics and bacterial flora are being taken into account, because the skin has a natural balance, just like your gut.
The goal is to prevent further hair loss and help regrow hair!
We use multiple modern and holistic modalities including Light Therapy & Microneedling.
Depending on your hair loss condition, age, and health condition, you may undergo several sessions to see and feel results.
