Stroke sequelae includes symptoms like hemiplegia, numbness, aphasia, swallowing difficulties, facial distortion such as crooked mouth and depression. However, people who receive good rehabilitation after a stroke can make an effective recovery, sometimes regaining almost all the function lost during the stroke. Chinese scalp acupuncture is a contemporary acupuncture technique with just 40 years of history. It integrates traditional Chinese needling methods with Western medical knowledge of the cerebral cortex and has been proven to be a very effective technique for treating aftermath of stroke or mini-stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), and other central nervous system disorders. Acupuncture treatments work by improving circulation and restoring the communication between brain & body.

Applying the methods of early intervention and making the acupuncture treatment started at the best time for the stroke patients can prevent the disease continue to develop, reduce disability and improve the life quality, so that patients can return to the family and society for normal life.
