Neuro-Acupuncture

Neuro-Acupuncture integrates classical Chinese acupuncture techniques with neuroscience. It is also called Scalp Acupuncture because it is done by inserting needles into the scalp to stimulate underlying brain cells. Neuro-Acupuncture is extremely safe and effective. It requires very few needles and effects are immediately seen. Most commonly used for post-stroke and brain surgery therapy, Neuro-Acupuncture in fact treats many other neurological problems: Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Pain.

Neuro-Acupuncture is based on the latest scientific understanding of brain area functioning and neuroplasticity. By stimulating areas associated with motor, sensory or other functional impairment, brain cells are induced to make new connections and surrounding neurons are recruited to reform circuitry and restore the lost abilities. Since communication among neurons is the basis of all body and mind functioning it is not surprising that Neuro-Acupuncture can also treat problems that are not usually labeled as neurological.

Neuro-Acupuncture is practiced synergistically together with Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Auricular Acupuncture. Complex and difficult conditions become treatable when we understand that they are not separate entities but stages of transformation. Knowing how diseases move and develop within the body to affect different functions and organs points the way to cure. Acupuncture medicine is not deterministic. It is an open system that allows for alternative ways to understand and solve a problem. There are always possibilities for positive change.

Scalp Acupuncture Treats Pain

Neuroacupuncture, also known as scalp acupuncture, may be the most effective treatment for pain. I just treated two patients: one with stomach pain from cancer, the other with angina. The effect was immediate, pain gone within seconds like turning off a switch. Neuroacupuncture is a modality that integrates traditional acupuncture with neuroscience. I use it for post stroke and brain surgery therapy and have just started to use it to treat visceral pain. It's been amazing!
