Let’s say for example someone was in a car accident, injuring their neck and right shoulder. Actually the shoulder was already doing poorly from a previous tennis injury. One tiny scalp acupuncture needle, precisely placed, treats all the entire neck and shoulder areas on one side. This includes, not only all cervical vertebrae, disks, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue in the neck, but also the entire shoulder joint, and all muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves in the brachial plexus and upper arm. It is not uncommon to see immediate relief of pain.
The Chinese genius who created this technique, Dr. Ming Qing Zhu, has his patients do physical therapy type exercises while the needle is in the scalp, with fantastic results. Imagine what the results would be like if you combined Zhu’s scalp acupuncture with physical therapy, I know it would be very satisfying. Heck, with results that good maybe they will eventually have acupuncture be covered by Medicare. I may have good lung capacity but am not going to hold my breath waiting for this change to happen!
