Patient Receiving Neuro Acupuncture

Neuro Acupuncture is a modern acupuncture method that helps with neurological disorders and pain conditions. We treat people with post-stroke symptoms, traumatic brain injury, post concussion syndrome chronic pain, hormone imbalances, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, and psycho-emotional issues such as depression and PTSD.

Integrating traditional Chinese needling methods and Scalp Acupuncture with western neurology, Neuro Acupuncture is an advanced skill often producing remarkable results with just a few needles.

The founders of the Neuro Acupuncture Institute (NAI), Drs. Jason and Linda Hao, operate private practices in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico and train M.D.’s, acupuncturists, Physical Therapists, and other medical professionals. NAI has become world renowned for their ability to treat chronic neurological issues.  I am one of 60 fully certified level III neuro acupuncturists in the USA having studied with Drs. Jason and Linda Hao. Many of my patients have had amazing results with some of their most stubborn neurological conditions.

What is a Treatment Like?

Scalp acupuncture may sound scary but it’s really simple. While sitting in a chair, a few needles are placed in specific areas of the scalp. These are sterile, hair thin needles and are placed just beneath the skin into the loose areolar layer of the scalp tissue. This layer has no nerves, but is simply a layer of connective tissue. The needle glides effortlessly, with no pain. We choose areas that correspond to brain regions which control pain perception, movement, swelling, circulation, abnormal sensation such as tingling and numbness, and mood; depending on which symptoms you are experiencing.

After the Neuro acupuncture portion, you lie down on a comfortable massage table. We then place needles in the arms and legs to further enhance the effects of the scalp treatment. After 30 minutes the needles are removed. Most patients report feeling less symptoms as soon as the needles are placed. They feel relaxed and peaceful throughout the treatment.


Lost Nerve Function

After a serious car accident 7 weeks ago I have suffered a plethora of traumatic injuries and have many ongoing, complex complications. I have only seen Margaret twice so far and I am already seeing huge improvements in lost nerve function and regaining use of my face, which was partially paralyzed!

Most importantly- Margaret never batted an eye at my pages-long list of symptoms and concerns. She listened to each one and acknowledged what I was going through and validated what I was going through, followed by giving me confidence in her treatment plan. I’m excited to continue working with her on my path to wellness and have a renewed sense of hope about my recovery. Thank you Inner Light!!

Pins and Needles – Arm Pain

Life changing! I still can’t believe this worked!!! I had constant pain and pins & needles shooting through my left shoulder, elbow, wrist and fingers from a pinched nerve in my upper back/neck area. It kept me up at night and the pain was to the bone! I’m an avid golfer and to give you an idea of the pain – I would drop the club during my swing…shots were shanked. I actually purchased left-handed clubs and began practicing. That’s when a friend suggested I visit Margaret. I felt relief after the 1st session…and after 6 sessions I’m pain free. My wife will be calling to schedule an appointment for her migraines. Another thing: no side effects!
