We are pleased to announce another offering of an exciting education opportunity—Chinese Scalp Acupuncture

Chinese scalp acupuncture (CSA) is a contemporary acupuncture technique integrating traditional Chinese needling methods with Western biomedical knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the cerebral cortex.  Scalp acupuncture has been proven to be the most effective technique for treating acute and chronic central nervous system disorders. Scalp acupuncture often produces remarkable results with just a few needles and usually brings about immediate improvements.


Acupuncture has been used to prevent and treat disease in China for thousands of years. Scalp acupuncture, however, is a modern innovation and development with just 40 years of history. Scalp acupuncture is frequently used in the rehabilitation of paralysis due to stroke, multiple sclerosis, automobile accidents, and Parkinson’s disease. It is also used in pain management, especially that caused by the central nervous system, such as phantom pain, complex regional pain, and residual limb pain. It has been proven to have very effective results in treating PTSD, TBI, aphasia, ataxia, and Menière’s disease.

This course introduces CSA to you through didactic material, demonstration of techniques, and clinical experience for participants. The didactic material covers the anatomy and physiology of the brain and the scalp, in order to show the location and indications of scalp acupuncture points. Demonstration and hands-on segments cover needling technique and stimulation of needles on your classmates. This course contains many case studies from Dr. Hao’s clinical practice and seminars. The range of his successful cases spans the past thirty years.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the history, theory, and research of Chinese scalp acupuncture;
  • Master the locations, proper needling, and clinical applications of each scalp acupuncture area;
  • Design and execute special treatments for the disorders accessible to this discipline;
  • Improve their effective recovery rate for neurological disorders; 
  • Help patients with even the most challenging and difficult conditions;
  • Add a new high-level skill and performance to their clinical acupuncture practice;
  • Recognize contraindications to the use of Chinese scalp acupuncture.
