What is scalp acupuncture?
Scalp acupuncture is a form of neuro-acupuncture, a growing area of medicine which combines the knowledge of the central nervous system functioning as defined by Western medicine with the knowledge of energy pathways and needling techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Scalp acupuncture is showing great promise treating both chronic and acute disorders of the central nervous system.
What conditions can be treated by scalp acupuncture?
Scalp acupuncutre is often utilized as a simultaneous treatment during the rehabilitation of people suffering from conditions including:
- Paralysis caused by stroke, MS, Parkinson’s disease and injury
- Pain related to the central nervous system
Acupoints in the scalp correspond to pathways that affect the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of the patients. By inserting needles into these points, we effect a positive change in the symptoms presenting from the above-listed conditions.
