Toowoomba Acupuncturist Discusses Scalp Acupuncture in Toowoomba for Neurological Disorders

Diagram of Scalp-Acupuncture-in-Toowoomba-for-Neurological-DisordersChinese Scalp Acupuncture (CSA) has been shown to be effective for treating the symptoms of about 40 complicated and serious medical conditions. Chinese Scalp Acupuncture has been used to treat the symptoms of numerous diverse neurological and neuromuscular medical conditions including stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), Motor Neurone Diseases, Parkinson’ disease, Huntington’s Disease, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), phantom pain, complex regional pain, spinal cord injury, fibromyalgia, paralysis, aphasia, ataxia, dizziness and vertigo, concussion, progressive myopathy, neuritis, poliomyelitis, post polio syndrome, periodic paralysis, hysterical paralysis, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), Bell’s palsy, Ménière’s Syndrome, plantar fasciitis, Erectile Dysfunction, urinary and faecal incontinence, iatrogenic damage from brain surgery and tinnitus etc. While these complicated medical conditions are generally quite difficult to treat effectively using traditional Chinese and Japanese acupuncture systems, Chinese Scalp Acupuncture appears to hold the key for treating the symptoms of these diverse neurological disorders.

Scalp Acupuncture in Toowoomba for Complex Neurological Disorders 

Toowoomba Senior Acupuncturist Discusses Scalp Acupuncture

Dr. Jiao Shun-fa, a neurosurgeon from Shan Xi province, is the recognized founder of Chinese Scalp Acupuncture. Dr. Jiao systematically undertook the scientific exploration and mapping of scalp correlations starting in 1971. Dr. Jiao merged the modern understanding of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology with traditional techniques of the established Chinese acupuncture system to synthesise a simple yet powerful new tool for rectifying the functions of a damaged central nervous system. From a Western perspective, these zones correspond to the cortical areas of the cerebrum and cerebellum responsible for central nervous system functions such as motor activity, sensory input, vision, speech, hearing, and balance. Dr. Jiao’s discovery was investigated, acknowledged, and formally recognized by the acupuncture profession in a national acupuncture textbook, Acupuncture and Moxibustion, in 1977. Dr Jason Hao is highly recommended as a world-class authority in the field of Scalp Acupuncture. He trained under Dr Jiao Shun-fa, the founder of scalp acupuncture in China.

This specialised acupuncture system offers a treatment protocol for general medical applications, pain management, and rehabilitation medicine. But how exactly does this powerful system work?

In the article entitled “Review of Clinical Applications of Scalp Acupuncture for Paralysis: An Excerpt From Chinese Scalp Acupuncture” Jason Hao states “In clinical practice, acupuncture treatments are typically based not just on a systematic or rigidly applied system, but also on highly individualized philosophical constructs and intuitive impressions. The practitioner has a wide amount of discretion on the use of points and techniques. Therefore, even when treating the same complaint, the method of treatment chosen by one practitioner can vary significantly from another.”

He goes on to point out “scalp acupuncture, on the other hand, applies more of a Western medicine approach, where patients with the same diagnosis usually receive the same or very similar treatment. The scalp somatotopic system seems to operate as a miniature transmitter-receiver in direct contact with the central nervous system and endocrine system. By stimulating those reflex areas, acupuncture can have direct effects on the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, thalamo-cortical circuits, thalamus, hypothalamus, and pineal body. The scalp’s unique neurological and endocrinal composition makes it an ideal external stimulating field for internal activities of the brain. Scalp acupuncture treats and prevents disease through the proper insertion of needles into scalp areas. It is accompanied by special manipulations to regulate and harmonize the functional activities of the brain and body, as well as to restore and strengthen the functions of the body, organs, and tissues. Scalp acupuncture successfully integrates the essence of ancient Chinese needling techniques with the essence of neurology in Western medicine.”

Suitably trained acupuncture practitioners are able to improve and relieve many of the symptoms associated with neurological and neuromuscular problems that have defied improvement using other treatment modalities. The editor and publisher of the book “Chinese Scalp Acupuncture” by Dr Jason Hao stated “I believe that scalp acupuncture is capable of changing lives for the better, even in cases where the patients and their families have all but given up any hope of improvement”. She (Honora Lee Wolfe) is an acupuncturist and co-founder of Blue Poppy Press, in Boulder, Colorado, and is the publisher of this modern ground-breaking visionary book.

I have been using scalp acupuncture for about 15 years, but massively complemented my skill-base thanks to attending the 2-day workshop ‘Chinese Scalp Acupuncture: Theory, Techniques and Clinical Applications of Scalp Acupuncture’, which was presented by Dr Jason Hao in Sydney, Australia.

Accupuncture, Acupunture or Accupunture common misspelling

Note that “Acupuncture” is often misspelt as accupuncture, acupunture or accupunture, that is with either too many c’s or not enough c’s. I would love to be able to clear up this very common spelling mistake, and set the record straight.

Ac·u·punc·ture – pronounced ak-yoo-puhngk-cher; Origin: 1675–85; < Latin acū with a needle (ablative of acus  needle) or acu- (as combining form of acus ) + puncture.
