Chinese Scalp Acupuncture
There are more than 80 neurological disorders described that can be successfully influenced and improved by Chinese Scalp Acupuncture. The most frequently targeted and successfully treated central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) conditions are...
CSA works by retraining intact brain areas to take over the previous function of the damaged areas, as such it is tailored to improve neurological conditions.
However, it can be be used for many other problems, like internal medicine conditions, eye problems, stubborn and very difficult to manage autoimmune and allergic skin conditions, gynecological problems, androgen problems, just to mention a few.
Chinese Scalp Acupuncture (CSA) has been developed to needle precisely measured zones on the scalp. These areas on the scalp overlap underlying brain structures and areas, like motor, sensory, speech, hearing, balance, autonomic centers, etc.
In concurrence with needling the scalp, distant extremity points can be needled and electrically stimulated to re-gain lost motor function and re-establish the connection between the peripherial and central nervous system. This is especially useful when the presenting problem or symptom is spasticity, paralysis or plegia.
The inserted needles are usually manually, (seldom electrically), stimulated in order to re-train the brain to perform functions that are lost or damaged due to the underlying disease process.
As such, during scalp treatment there is an active interaction between patient and doctor as the practitioner works actively on the scalp, manually stimulating the inserted needles with a certain speed (frequency). This is unique, because in "general" body acupuncture, after the insertion of the needles, the patient is usually left alone to relax and enjoy the treatment.
