Chinese Medicine Adventures: Scalp Acupuncture

Chinese Medicine Adventures: Scalp Acupuncture

Chinese Medicine Adventures posted about doing scalp acupuncture at the University of Technology, Sydney

"We are doing this is to help people who, for example, need better and improved muscle response in the their legs. Below is a patient named Josh. He very kindly allowed me to take this photo in clinic ... Josh came to the UTS acupuncture clinic to try treatment out to help with his recovery from a car accident in October 2008. He sustained major injuries to his spine and now is working to regain the use of his legs. He also has reduced mobility and strength in his arms. He is a determined man and his ability for walking or aided walk is looking fantastic. This is because of all the physiotherapy work he does, determined attitude and therapies such as acupuncture and Chinese Medicine herbs."
