Acupuncture, a therapeutic technique of Oriental Medicine, can be traced back more than 2500 years. Throughout its long history, acupuncture has evolved as its own unique traditional medicine. By embracing newly developed knowledge and technology, the profession continues to create additional methods of treatment. Techniques such as electrical and laser acupuncture and even new acupuncture points are currently being developed. We believe neuro acupuncture, which integrates Western medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine, to be the most significant development that Chinese acupuncture has made in the past 60 years.
Neuro acupuncture is a well-researched natural science and incorporates extensive knowledge of both the past and present. Years of clinical experience have contributed to its recent discoveries and developments, but treatment of disorders by needling the scalp can also be traced back to early civilizations. In 100 BCE, the first Chinese acupuncture text, Huang Di Nei Jing (The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine) described the relationship between the brain and the body in physiology, pathology, and treatment as it was understood at that time, and citations of acupuncture treatments on the head can be found throughout classical Chinese literature.
Neuro Acupuncture integrates the time-tested Acupuncture with modern scientific biomedical knowledge of clinical neurology, neuroanatomy, physiology, and pathology to safely and effectively treat a wide array of seemingly complex neurological conditions. Needling point or areas are not based on Traditional Chinese Medicine’s meridian theory, in fact, very few traditional acu-points will actually be applied. Instead, the treatment will focus on how to effectively stimulate nerve functions.
Neuro Acupuncture is a contemporary acupuncture technique integrating traditional Chinese needling methods with Western biomedical neurology. Neuro-Acupuncture has proven to be the most effective technique for treating acute and chronic central nervous system disorders, including: stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, Cerebral Palsy, and Autism. Patients often experience remarkable results with just a few needles, bringing about immediate improvement.
