Clinical Handbook of Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture
This handbook is an invaluable resource on the principles and practice of Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA). This popular form of scalp acupuncture is used to treat a wealth of neurological conditions, and is very effective in stroke patients with pain and restricted mobility, providing relief from the symptoms.
David Bomzon is an international expert on YNSA and he includes step-by-step explanations of points, points location, indications for needling, and clinical cases, all supported by line drawings and photographs. Uniquely, this book is written by an acupuncturist for acupuncturists, chiropractors and physical therapists, and the author clearly reconciles the theoretical needling points described by Yamamoto with actual needling points. Basic, sensory, brain, Y (epsilon) and cranial points are all covered, as well as instructions on applying YNSA in the clinic. The handbook also explains the benefits of combining YNSA treatment with Western medicine and physical therapy, making this essential reading for all practitioners looking to expand their knowledge of scalp acupuncture.
