Chinese Scalp Acupuncture

Chinese scalp acupuncture, also known as head acupuncture, is a contemporary acupuncture technique integrating traditional Chinese needling methods with Western medical knowledge of brain anatomy. It has been proven to be a very effective technique for treating acute and chronic central nervous system disorders. It often produces remarkable results with just a few needles and usually brings about immediate improvement, sometimes taking only several seconds to a minute.

Some of the conditions that can be treated include: 

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
