  1. Detailed Course Description:

   Chinese scalp acupuncture is a contemporary acupuncture technique that combines traditional Chinese needling methods with the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the Western cerebral cortex and biomedical sciences. Scalp acupuncture has been proven to be the most effective treatment for acute and chronic central nervous system diseases. Often, only a few needles are needed to produce significant effects, and improvement is usually seen immediately. Acupuncture has been used in China for thousands of years for disease prevention and treatment. However, scalp acupuncture is a modern innovation and development with only 50 years of history. Scalp acupuncture is often used in stroke, multiple sclerosis, motor vehicle accident paralysis rehabilitation, Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, autism, and long-term symptoms of COVID-19. It is also used in pain management, especially pain caused by the central nervous system, such as phantom limb pain, complex regional pain syndrome, and residual limb pain. It has been proven to be very effective in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, brain injury, aphasia, ataxia, and Meniere's disease.

   This course introduces Chinese scalp acupuncture to students through teaching, demonstrating scalp acupuncture techniques, and clinical experience. The teaching content covers the anatomy and physiology of the brain and scalp to demonstrate the location and indications of scalp acupuncture points. The demonstration and practice sections cover needling techniques and methods of scalp acupuncture stimulation. This course includes many clinical case practices and discussions from Dr. Hao's clinical experience spanning the past 42 years. Scalp acupuncture is technically systematic, logical, easy to understand, and relatively simple. Chinese scalp acupuncture is easier to learn and understand, with lower costs, smaller risks, faster response rates, and fewer side effects compared to many Western treatment methods. If you wish to do more to help patients, especially those with central nervous system disorders that other therapies cannot treat, you will benefit greatly from attending this course.
