Scalp Acupuncture is one of the modern microsystem acupuncture techniques combining Chinese needling methods with western medical knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and neurology about representative areas of the cerebral cortex. During an acupuncture treatment, very short, fine needles are placed superficially in some areas of the scalp to achieve the desired therapeutic effects.
Scalp Acupuncture is remarkable for its fast effects. Many patients notice an improvement after the first treatment. These positive responses usually continue for 3-4 days. To obtain the best results, it is often necessary to repeat the treatment.
Scalp Acupuncture treats the same variety of diseases as does the body acupuncture. Notably, it is most effective in the treatment of acute conditions, pain, nerve system disorders, and psychological and psychosomatic disorders.
