Bell's Palsy also called Idiopathic Facial Paralysis, is a neurological disorder that causes paralysis and/or weakness to one side of the face. The condition affects the facial nerve (7th cranial nerve), which then affects all the muscles associated with this nerve.

The exact cause of Bell's Palsy is unknown to this date, and it can affect a person at any age. Some cases have been attributed to past viral infections, as well as other underlying health conditions.
Acupuncture have been shown to help improve symptoms of Bell's Palsy. In various studies, researchers say that there is strong evidence that acupuncture in the acute stage was associated with increased effectiveness. Meaning that the sooner a person starts acupuncture treatments after the initial onset of Bell's palsy, the better the outcome.
