It is highly specialised form of acupuncture that utilises unique techniques and needles where only a very few number of practitioners are trained/qualified in this area. By targeting neurological sites on the scalp, it is especially designed to treat Neurological conditions for example: stroke, MS, Parkinson’s, ALS, and nerve pain. Fundamental principles is based on brain sending nerve signals down the spinal cord, attempting to find new neuronal pathways. Once a visible or improved movement is detected, the patient is asked to repeat the same motion over and over, so that the nervous system creates a memory of the this.
ZSA : Zhu's Scalp Acupuncture
It is not only effective on stroke or MS , but also can be used in fertility, anxiety etc. I am really proud that I graduated from same school and trained in the same hospital.
Patients with neurological conditions are like people trapped inside a dark room. Those who stay motionless will remain in the room forever. Those who exercise are probing for an exit, but the door remains closed. Acupuncture acts like a key to the closed door and allows light to shine through. However, the person still needs to make the effort to walk out of the room in order to step out into the sun.
Acupuncture can be a KEY with HOPE
