Neuro-Acupuncture: What to Expect
Neuro-acupuncture in Brooklyn
Neuro-acupuncture is a new technique that combines the tenets of Traditional Chinese Medicine with Western scientific research regarding the function of the brain. Acupuncture is well known for its capacity to optimize the body’s natural mechanism for healing and now acupuncture is being studied as a treatment for disorders of the brain. Neuro-acupuncture has shown great promise in treating both acute and chronic nervous system disorders with very few side-effects.
What conditions can be treated with neuro-acupuncture
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Bell’s Palsey
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Multiple Sclerosis
- and more
How does neuro-acupuncture work?
There are three forms of neuro-acupuncture which are all based upon the functioning of the nervous system.
- Scalp acupuncture: targets points on the head and directly impacts the central nervous system.
- Auricular acupuncture: targets points on the ears and impacts the central nervous system.
- Biomedical acupuncture: also known as Integrative Neuromuscular Acupoint System, this type targets acupoints throughout the body that affect both the peripheral and central nervous systems.
What to expect with neuro-acupuncture
We target acupoints, both in the head and throughout the body, that correspond to your particular condition and insert thin needles to stimulate the body’s nervous system. The needles are left in for 30 minutes in which time many people find their breathing will slow and feelings of relaxation will set in.
