Trigeminal Neuralgia, the Meridian Massage Approach
“Neuralgia” means pain along a nerve. Nerve pain is particularly challenging because of its intensity.
The trigeminal nerve is a three branched (“tri”) nerve that covers a large area on the side of the face (see image).
Trigeminal Neuralgia is a very painful condition usually affecting one side of the face. Something has irritated the trigeminal nerve, which results in the sensation of pain – this is the perspective from western medicine.
