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.

Conquering chronic pain with Qigong

A few days ago Jake contributed this testimonial:

"Lok-Kwan opened up a world of relief I did not think was possible with my neurological pain disorder (specifically a progressive disease of the sympathetic nervous system).  After my first Qigong session I felt pain relief and continue to use his Qigong instructions and breathing techniques daily.
For over a decade I tried countless medicines, opioids, surgeries and procedures from the "best" specialists in the Midwest.  Lok-Kwan was the first to bring me consistent relief, and I am eternally grateful for him."

- Jake

Working with a patient to overcome chronic pain is no less than a spiritual journey and I thank Jake for being my dedicated companion and, yes. teacher: I have learnt as much as he in this adventure. Jake is determined and dedicated and he achieved much within a rather short period of time. An important point he made in his testimonial is that Qigong excels over other conventional therapies. So wonderful and empowering to conquer a disease yourself with no drugs, no side effects and no invasive procedures.
