Scalp Acupuncture (SA) is one of the modern microsystem acupuncture techniques which combines Chinese acupuncture needling methods with Western medical knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology and particularly the elementary functional neuroanatomy about representative areas of the cerebral cortex. During the treatment, the needles are inserted into the specific stimulating areas on the scalp to achieve the desired therapeutic effects, which is mainly used to treat brain related conditions, including neurological disorders, psychological and psychosomatic conditions, such as wind stroke, depression, Parkinson”s disease, dementia, pain, chronic muscle spasm, etc.
