Neuroacupuncture is a contemporary acupuncture technique that integrates Chinese medicine needling methods with Western medical knowledge of neuroanatomy, neuroscience, and neuro-rehab. Neuroacupuncture is an advanced skill utilizing points mainly on the scalp to stimulate different regions of the brain and central nervous system. It is effective in treating acute and chronic central nervous system disorders, often producing remarkable results with just a few points.
Vagus Nerve Stimulation
Neuroacupuncture is amazing for helping to regulate vagal nerve response. A regulated vagus nerve reduces anxiety, PTSD and trauma responses, depression, improves digestion, treats autoimmune issues, and reduces inflammation. I’ve developed a very effective technique using electroacupuncture on specific scalp, ear, and body points that stimulate the vagus nerve to strengthen tone and regulate vagal response.
Electroacupuncture uses a small machine that emits a painless electromagnetic pulse. The electromagnetic pulse feels like a slight buzzing or tapping and is not unpleasant. After 20-30 minutes of this, you will leave the office feeling incredibly relaxed. Vagal nerve stimulation will help regulate all the processes controlled by the vagal nerve, which can treat a huge number of neurological and inflammatory issues.

Am I a Good Candidate for Neuroacupuncture?
Neuroacupuncture can safely and effectively be used on children. All central nervous system disorders are best treated as soon as possible, though it’s never too late to try and slow or reverse damage to the brain.
Neuroacupuncture is not appropriate for pregnant women, patients with a fever, brain cancer or tumors, or uncontrolled hypertension.
The Results Speak for Themselves
