Scalp Acupuncture is a less known, very unique style of acupuncture.
It can be successfully (and easily) incorporated into, and complement other osteo-, and allopathic therapies for many...
Peripheral and/or Central Nervous System Disorders
Hence the newly arising nomenclature; Neuro-Acupuncture.
In other words, no matter what the western diagnosis is, scalp treatments focus on the symptoms, addressing the lost function regardless of the etiology. It doesn’t matter if the neurological dysfunction is caused by underlying inflammatory, autoimmune process, vascular catastrophe (like stroke), hypoxia (like cerebral palsy) and so on... the therapy is guided by the objective neurological findings, and subjective symptoms (CSA) and/or following a certain, logical microsystem diagnostic protocol (YNSA).
What is SCALP ACUPUNCTURE?
The needles are placed into the scalp…
...the difference is from traditional acupuncture is that the scalp points used (usually) do not belong to the body’s classic meridian channel points.
YNSA (Yamamoto's New Scalp Acupuncture)
YNSA handles the scalp as a microsystem; every point has a precise, millimeter-exact location. It is not too difficult to master under a very good instructor, and if it's performed accurately it has amazing, instant impact on improving serious, even chronic conditions in the majority of the cases.
Yamamoto`s points need to be absolutely precisely measured, localized, and needled, to achieve maximum results. The "Y" points correspond with the traditional meridian system, and the "Basic Points" relate to the musculoskeletal system.
The therapy is guided by following microsystem diagnostic principles, (usually neck and/or abdomen), in a very logical manner.
CSA (Chinese Scalp Acupuncture)
Instead of millimeter precise points, Chinese scalp acupuncture targets scalp zones that are corresponding with the underlying exact neuro-anatomical areas on the cortex of the brain.
The therapy is based on the neuro exam, relating it to the responsible cerebrum areas, needling the scalp zone above the damaged brain structure.

...How far would you go...?
Millions and millions are affected by traumatic brain injury, stroke, MS, ALS, CMT, Cerebral Palsy and many other motor neuron and sensory neuron peripheral or central nervous damage.
Although western medicine provide medical and physico-therapy support, scalp acupuncture can be a very important modality to add.
No matter if you are closely involved with patients with similar central nervous disasters or just simply interested, this documentary will touch you...
The good news is (at least for those of you who does not live in China)...
That you do not need to travel to China!!!...
... to receive the treatments demonstrated in 9000 Needles.
The founders of Chinese Scalp Acupuncture and their many prominent disciples are practicing in the United States. I am planning to post a comprehensive list on them so you can confidently choose an expert depending on your geographic location.
To locate an (physician) acupuncturist who is treating neurological conditions in your area, type "Scalp Acupuncture + the diagnosis + Your area" into the search box below...
Besides China, Japan, or US, there are many practitioners trained in Scalp Acupuncture worldwide...
...all countries of (especially western) Europe, India, Brazil, can be a strong example but it is spreading, so you might be able to locate one in your own country.
WHY IS IT NOT WIDELY KNOWN...?
Very good question...
