Acupuncture therapy for stroke
Acupuncture therapy for stroke-caused conditions such as paralysis, speech and swallowing problems, and depression is commonly used in the Orient. In China and Japan, an acupuncturist is likely to start therapy as soon as possible after a stroke.
Many studies have been conducted on the effects of acupuncture during stroke rehabilitation. These studies show that acupuncture reduces hospital stays and improves recovery speed. Acupuncture has been shown to help stroke patients regain motor and cognitive skills and to improve their ability to manage daily functioning.
Acupuncture is an essential part of traditional Oriental medicine, a comprehensive system of health care with continuous clinical history of over 3000 years.
These therapies work with the natural vital energy inherent within all living things to promote the body's ability to heal itself.
It has been scientifically determined that human beings are energetic systems. When the balance of this energy is disturbed, pain or illness results. Acupuncture treatment corrects the energetic imbalance by encouraging the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Acupuncture is a very safe medical procedure when administered by a qualified practitioner.
