Scalp Acupuncture

Chinese Scalp acupuncture (CSA) evolved between the ’50’s and ’70’s in Northern China. Dr. Jiao Shun-fa, a neurosurgeon, is considered to be the founder of scalp acupuncture in China. This method is based on neuroanatomy from a Western medical perspective. It is used primarily to treat paralysis and aphasia due to stroke, but also can be used for many disorders of the central nervous system. This can include phantom limb pain, traumatic brain injury (TBI), multiple sclerosis (MS), restless leg syndrome, Bell’s palsy, Parkinson’s disease, PTSD, Meniere’s syndrome, quadriplegia, stoke, chronic pain, complex regional pain, Alzheimer’s, motor neuron diseases (MND) such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), progressive muscular atrophy (PMA), post-polio syndrome, aphasia, cerebellar ataxia, essential tremors, fibromyalgia, and seizures.
