Neuro-Acupuncture can help with the following symptoms associated with stroke

Aphasia
Depression
Hemiplegia (Paralysis)
Incontinence
Memory Loss
Pain
Balance
Dysphagia
Hypertension
Insomnia
Muscle Weakness
Spasticity

Why should stroke survivors attend this event?

 

• To breakthrough conventional rehabilitation plateaus 

• To experience Neuro-Acupuncture’s neuro-plastic effect

• For a more holistic approach towards your stroke rehabilitation

Stroke recovery is not linear

Treatments have an accumulative effect on the brain’s neuro-plasticity over time.

Can acupuncture really benefit stroke recovery?

An article by Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture founder Professor Ming Qing Zhu L.Ac., OMD

The treatment of stroke and its rehabilitation is a specialty that demands certain skills and knowledge. If you need heart surgery, you seek a cardiac surgeon, not a general practitioner.
