Pain is the most common clinical condition, and it is also one of the characteristic disorders of acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine. It has a relatively satisfactory effect on general pain. However, some chronic pains are recurrent and difficult to heal, especially some neuropathic pains. If these pains are only treated according to the local qi and blood stasis and blocked meridians, sometimes the curative effect is not satisfied. Brian science believes that the main reflection area and controller of these chronic pains are in the brain, and the continuous stimulation of pain has produced sensitized areas in the brain, and a vicious cycle of pain and sensitization has been formed. Brain acupuncture, represented by scalp acupuncture and Du meridian (Governor Vessel) Daoqi technic, can precisely stimulate and adjust the sensitized area to break this vicious circle. This talk will briefly introduce the key points of these commonly used scalp acupuncture stimulation areas and Du meridian points and their needling methods.
