After the success of our first Scalp Acupuncture Course in January 2019, we are pleased to welcome back Dr Hui Nie for a second English-spoken masterclass. The Scalp Acupuncture Workshop will be held on October 26th and 27th 2019. Once again, spaces are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
Scalp acupuncture, also referred to as head acupuncture, is a treatment where needles are penetrated to certain points on the scalp. It has been proven to be effective for stroke patients, childhood cerebral palsy, comatose patients, dementia and Alzheimer patients.
This method was invented by the Chinese scholar, Dr Jiao Shunfa in 1971. Since then, scalp acupuncture has grown in popularity in and outside of China and the treatment itself has been adopted by many practitioners. The 14 points were later approved in 1984 by the World Federation of Acupuncture and Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) and head acupuncture became a recognised treatment in 1989.
Whilst there are only 14 points, Scalp Acupuncture has yielded highly effective results. Dr Hui Nie promises to teach students the location, indication and treatment of the lines in just two days.
