Vertigo sufferers feel that their head is spinning when in fact it is quite still. It is a more complicated problem than just dizziness. It is often triggered by fear of falling from a height, or during bouts of nausea and vomiting. Vertigo can be caused by inflammation of the balance organ in the inner ear, or by some other ear disorder as well as migraines. It is a frequent symptom in cases of high blood pressure.

Chinese Medicine identifies three possible causes as follows: a deficiency of the Blood, Qi deficiency (common in old people or after serious illness), or Liver-Wind or Phlegm in the body. Each is easily treated with herbs, once a Chinese Medicine practitioner has isolated the cause.

Clinical studies indicate that Vertigo may respond well, and relatively quickly to treatment with acupuncture.
