Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture: A Ray of Hope in Critical Medical Conditions

Doctor Scott Ling has recently returned from Shanghai following a 5-day Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture course with Professor Ming Qing Zhu. The course was based at Shanghai Rui Jin North Hospital, which is the largest hospital in Shanghai, with 12 floors, 3 floors dedicated to ER beds, and 600-bed facilities in total.

Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture

Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture is a specialised acupuncture technique where fine, short needles are placed on the scalp to achieve therapeutic benefit. Rapidly growing in popularity, Scalp Acupuncture is a convenient therapy, compared to traditional treatments, as it concentrates on the various channels from the scalp to relieve pain from different areas of the body.

As well as yielding results for many ailments, the scalp acupuncture procedure does not interfere with daily activity as it causes little discomfort due to the unique style of the short and thin needles.

In China, Western medicine commonly borrows from Eastern treatments and therapies, such as acupuncture. Moreover, due to the success of Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture, the head of the ER department at Shanghai Rui Jin North Hospital has encouraged the use of Scalp Acupuncture treatment for ER patients.

Dr Ling and the other doctors undertaking the course received guided training from Dr Zhu during the 5-day course. Their training focused on the application of scalp acupuncture for patients with critical emergency conditions, within the ER department at Shanghai Rui Jin North Hospital.

A patient with spectacular results had suffered from cerebral haemorrhage and had been hospitalised for 22 days. At that point in time, Doctors were growing wary of the swelling in the patient’s brain, as well as the probability that the patient would suffer from paralysis once conscious. Following one application of Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture, the patient came to consciousness and was walking, assisted, with vitality and confidence.

Another patient who received Zhu’s Scalp Treatment during this 5-day training period had been in a coma for 2 days, with tests and brain scans providing inconclusive results. The ER doctors from Shanghai Rui Jin North Hospital were mystified by the patient’s condition, and therefore requested Zhu’s Scalp Treatment. Alike to the other patient, this patient came to consciousness a mere 30-minutes after the application of Zhu’s Scalp Treatment.

During the 5-day course, Dr Ling acquired knowledge on Zhu’s unique treatment zones, Zhu’s ways of manipulating the needles, treatment for internal diseases, emergency and critical conditions, and psychiatric conditions.

Zhu’s Scalp Treatment technique has yielded miraculous results for thousands of patients and has become recognised worldwide as one of the most effective methods for the treatment of a wide variety of difficult-to-manage medical conditions.
