Neuro Acupuncture points are located on the scalp. While that may sound scary, it’s really simple. After cleaning the points, a few needles are placed in specific areas that correspond to regions of the brain related to your condition.
The needles are sterile, single use, and thin as a human hair 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.
We then place needles in the arms and legs to further enhance the effects of the scalp treatment. After 20-25 minutes the needles are removed. Some patients report feeling less symptoms as soon as the needles are placed. Many report feeling relaxed and peaceful throughout the treatment since Neuro Acupuncture is great for calming the nervous system.
