The Technique

Neuro-Acupuncture is a scalp acupuncture technique that dates back about 45 years. Unlike the Chinese medicine theory of channels and points, it identifies areas on the scalp that correspond to the inner workings of the brain using Western medicine’s somatotopic mapping.

Neuro-acupuncture integrates needling methods with biomedical neurology to reclaim old and recruit new brain and central nervous system connections where damage has been caused by disease or injury. By utilizing the neuroplasticity of the brain to rewire connections, motor and sensory functions can, in many cases, be restored, particularly when treated in the early stages. Neuro-acupuncture also regulates brain activities and brain chemistry to modulate emotions, pain sensation, vasodilation and constriction, and endocrine and limbic functions.

I was getting up four times most nights to urinate and waking up exhausted. At age 91, this increased my risk of falling. My doctor tried reducing the dose of my medication, but it did not help. Linda prescribed a patent herbal formula and after just three days, I was getting up only one time at night and feeling much more rested in the morning. - L. R.
