Have you seen the recent article on USA Today about Angelina Jolie’s struggle with Bell’s Palsy?

The most interesting part is that Angelina “credited acupuncture for a full recovery.”

Bell’s Palsy has been a topic of interest in the acupunture world, because it’s so effective at treating the condition, if done in a timely manner.

Bell’s Palsy Blog Posts

Kimberly Thompson, L.Ac., has written several blog posts about Bell’s Palsy from a TCM perspective. Kimberly’s goal with her blog series was twofold:

  1. To teach practitioners how to treat Bell’s Palsy, and how the internal pathways in AcuGraph put the Bell’s Palsy protocol right at their fingertips
  2. To educate patients on Bell’s Palsy, including information on how to avoid the condition, and encouraging them to call an acupuncturist at the onset of Bell’s Palsy

Here’s links to each of the Bell’s Palsy blog posts:

  1. Bell’s Palsy- Part I: Educating your Patients
  2. Bell’s Palsy- Part II: Bell’s Palsy and AcuGraph
  3. Bell’s Palsy- Part III: How to Treat


Kimberly regularly receives inquiries about her articles from regular people wanting to find an acupuncturist to treat them or someone they know. If Kimberly isn’t close enough to treat them, do you know where she refers these potential patients to find a qualified practitioner?

  1. I didn’t hear about Acupuncture for my BellzPalsy until 3 or 4 months later. Too bad for me, it only cured about 75% of the paralysis. My smile, smell, hearing & taste are still way off. But at least the right side of my face isn’t hanging down like it used to. I can also now close my eye, but have a slow blink with tearz building up every minute. Angelina iz a beautiful woman .Thanx for her story.

So, what do you think about it?
