IV. Conclusion

Scalp acupuncture is useful for a wide variety of diseases, especially those of cortical origin. It is most useful for strokes and severe head injuries, but it should always be considered for other conditions where other methods of acupuncture are failing to give adequate results. It is particularly useful in reducing chronic muscle spasticity.

Hand Acupuncture

This is used primarily for acute conditions such as back strain or acute torticollis. The points are selected on a purely symptomatic basis. It is essential to obtain deqi over these points and, especially for acute conditions, to stimulate the hand points strongly. This can be very painful for the patient, who may faint.

Where hand acupuncture is useful the relevant point(s) is mentioned in the section on diseases. The hand points should be stimulated strongly whilst the patient exercises the painful area. It may be necessary to stimulate the hand points for some minutes, although the relief of pain and muscle spasm is often immediate.
