Are you an acupuncturist wanting additional skills or CE? Do you need additional tools to treat paralysis or limb and spinal pain?
Scalp Acupuncture (SA) is a contemporary acupuncture technique that integrates traditional Chinese needling methods with Western medical knowledge of the cerebral cortex. It is very effective for treating both acute and chronic Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders. Just a few needles can bring about remarkable immediate improvements after just a few minutes of therapy. And it is useful for treating a number of medical conditions for which Western medicine has nothing to offer.
Scalp acupuncture is like Western medicine in that patients with the same diagnosis receive the same or similar treatment. The location of treatment area in Scalp Acupuncture are based on the reflex somatotropic system organized on the surface of the scalp; they do not correlate with TCM channels. The scalp somatotropic system acts as a small window with access to the CNS and endocrine system. It is a great primary or complementary approach to CNS or endocrine diseases.
