Neuro-Acupuncture is a contemporary acupuncture technique which integrates classical Chinese needling with neuroscience. It is referred to as scalp acupuncture because specific areas of the scalp are needled to stimulate the underlying brain cells.
Neuro-Acupuncture is extremely safe and effective. It requires very few needles and effects are often seen immediately. Most commonly used for post-stroke recovery, Neuro-Acupuncture in fact treats many other neurological problems: Post-Concussion Syndrome, Migraine, Traumatic Brain injury, Parkinson's Disease, Bell's Palsy, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, PTSD, Autism, phantom pain, anxiety, Vertigo, nerve pain, paralysis.
Neuro-Acupuncture is based on the latest scientific understanding of brain area functioning and neuroplascity. 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.
