Jiao’s Scalp Acupuncture 氏頭皮針

This method is a micro-system based needle technique where 14 different lines on the scalp correspond to different neuro-functions such as sensory, motor, speech, chorea/tremor etc.  Needles are inserted at a transverse angle (parallel with the skin) then rotated at a high frequency (200 rotations/min) to establish a strong stimulation to the impaired nervous system.  Jiao’s Scalp Acupuncture technique is indicated for any neurological condition with symptoms involving motor/sensory impairment, numbness, aphasia, trembling, spasms, audio/visual dysfunction.

Awake Brain Open Senses Acupuncture 醒腦開竅刺法

Awake Brain Open Senses or XingNaoKaiQiao/醒腦開竅 is an acupuncture technique intended to induce a jerking reflex when deep nerve trunks of the arms/legs are stimulated.  This technique is suited to sensory/motor impairment commonly seen in post-stroke complications, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and Parkinson’s etc.  Severe neurological condition usually impacts the patient’s mental clarity and awareness as well.  The XNKQ technique via its ability to awake the brain provides mental improvement in addition to physical rehabilitation.
