Neuro-Acupuncture is a contemporary acupuncture technique integrating traditional Chinese needling methods and Scalp Acupuncture with western medical knowledge of neurology, neuroscience, and neurological rehabilitation.
Neuro-Acupuncture is an advanced skill, most effective in the treatment of acute and chronic central nervous system disorders. Neuro-Acupuncture is a treatment of diseases in which needles are placed on points in the scalp that correspond to specific areas of the cerebral cortex. The treatment is safe and effective.
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 impairments through acupuncture, brain cells are stimulated to make new connections. Surrounding neurons are then recruited to reform circuitry and help restore lost abilities.
