The Chinese Scalp acupuncture is an old traditional Chinese therapy used to treat the hemiplegia, numbness of limbs and aphasia caused by cerebral thrombosis, cerebral haemorrhage or cerebral embolism.

It is done by stimulating related parts of the scalp corresponding to the cerebral cortex with acupuncture needles. It is effective, simple, convenient and inexpensive.
