Acupuncture has a long and broad history that covers thousands of years. Even today, there are numerous distinct styles of acupuncture practiced around the world.

Neuroacupuncture is a relatively modern form of acupuncture that has been under development since the 1950’s. It is unique in the way that it integrates traditional acupuncture techniques with modern understanding of neuroanatomy and physiology. Instead of using traditional acupuncture meridian points, neuroacupuncture utilizes zones on the head that correspond to the individual functions of each part of the brain such as motor activity, sensory input, vision, speech, hearing, and balance. By stimulating various regions of the brain, neuroacupuncture has proven to be an effective approach in regulating the nervous system.

Neuroacupuncture can be used to treat both acute and chronic neurological conditions. For some conditions, improvements are made after only a few minutes. Others may take longer to respond and require 4-8 treatments before significant results are seen.

Conditions Treated Include:

Stroke Sequelae

Multiple Sclerosis

Parkinson’s disease

Traumatic Brain Injury

Essential Tremor

Neuroacupuncture has the potential to provide positive results with many neurological conditions. I welcome all inquiries about conditions not listed here.
