Scalp acupuncture is gaining notoriety for its ability to help stroke patients regain motor function after an ischemic event. Scalp acupuncture prevents and reduces edema in the brain, stopping further damage to brain tissues. It also promotes perfusion in the brain, restoring blood and oxygen to brain cells to save them from dying after an ischemic attack. It also helps break down blood clots! While a wondrous therapy for stroke patients that I have had the slack-jawed honor of witnessing at the Emperor's College Stroke Clinic, scalp acupuncture can benefit any condition with a neurological component, from Parkinson's to Multiple Sclerosis to Anosmia and Migraines. I even use it for depression! The entire human body is mapped out on the curves and crevasses of the cranium... as above, so below!
