Abstract:Scalp acupuncture is a modality of acupuncture in which acupuncture needles are inserted into a certain layer of the scalp in order to affect the function of corresponding areas of the cerebral cortex and relieve symptoms. Clinical studies have demonstrated the potential of scalp acupuncture as a non-pharmacological treatment for dementia. Unfortunately, recent findings from brain neuroimaging studies on dementia have not been incorporated into scalp acupuncture. This study aims to integrate meta-analysis, resting-state functional connectivity, and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to identify potential locations of scalp acupuncture for treatment of dementia. We found that the prefrontal cortex, the medial prefrontal cortex, the middle and superior temporal gyrus, the temporal pole, the supplementary motor area, the inferior occipital gyrus, and the precuneus are involved in the pathophysiology of dementia and, therefore, may be the target areas of scalp acupuncture for dementia treatment. The neuroimaging-based scalp acupuncture protocol developed in this study may help to refine the locations for the treatment of dementia. Integrating multidisciplinary methods to identify key surface cortical areas associated with a certain disorder may shed light on the development of scalp acupuncture and other neuromodulation methods such as transcranial electrical current stimulation, particularly in the domain of identifying stimulation locations.Keywords: scalp acupuncture; neuroimaging; meta-analysis; fMRI; dementia; neuromodulation

In scalp acupuncture, several microsystems have been explored and developed since the 1950s in China. Jiao Shunfa, MD, Fang Yunpeng, MD, and Tang Songyan, MD, 3 major contributors, respectively, discovered different charts and scalp acupuncture groups. In the 1970s, Jiao established the concept of combining modern neurologic anatomy and physiology principles with traditional acupuncture techniques. Zhu Ming Qing, LAc, also developed his scalp acupuncture method in the 1970s, which was based on the origins of modern scalp acupuncture in the work of Huang Xuelong, MD, who introduced the concept of a relationship between the scalp and the cerebral cortex. He founded his method, Zhu's scalp acupuncture, and published a book in English in 1992.14

Toshikatsu Yamamoto, MD, PhD, established Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) in 1973 and distinguished it from traditional Chinese scalp acupuncture.15 YNSA is a somatotopic representative microsystem that shows the entire body anatomically and functionally on the scalp. YNSA has been recognized as an effective therapy for use during rehabilitation16 for pain relief in patients who have suffered stroke17 or have chronic pain.18 The efficacy of YNSA in migraine-related pain relief has been reported to be similar to that of traditional Chinese acupuncture.19

Scalp acupuncture has been gaining traction since the 1950s. Many practitioners are familiar with the work of Dr. Shun Fa Jiao, PhD, MD(China), DN, DCN during the 70s, but may not be familiar with contributions to scalp acupuncture made by Dr. Ming Qing Zhu, LAc.8 Dr. Zhu's research started in 1969 when he contributed an alternate map of scalp acupuncture. Clinically, Dr. Zhu's map is extremely effective for the treatment of PPGP. In this system, the area above the external occipital protuberance (EOP) represents the sacrum.9 When using scalp acupuncture for sacroiliac dysfunction, the patient can be placed in a side-lying position so that the practitioner can easily access all parts of the patient's scalp.

In traditional acupuncture, the acupuncturist decides which points to treat by observing and questioning the patient to make a diagnosis according to the tradition used. In TCM, the four diagnostic methods are: inspection, auscultation and olfaction, inquiring, and palpation. Inspection focuses on the face and particularly on the tongue, including analysis of the tongue size, shape, tension, color and coating, and the absence or presence of teeth marks around the edge.[45] Auscultation and olfaction involve listening for particular sounds such as wheezing, and observing body odor.[45] Inquiring involves focusing on the "seven inquiries": chills and fever; perspiration; appetite, thirst and taste; defecation and urination; pain; sleep; and menses and leukorrhea.[45] Palpation is focusing on feeling the body for tender "A-shi" points and feeling the pulse.[45]

However, women experiencing alopecia areata may see improvement in hair loss and regrowth with the use of acupuncture. The tiny needles may help stimulate the scalp and improve the chances of hair returning.

Acupressure and Tui na is a therapeutic treatment that utilizes massage techniques, acupressure, manipulations and stretches to treat and prevent disease. Tui na differs from other forms of body work in that the goal is not to sedate and relax the patient. Tui Na tends to be a more intense form of body work than others and some patients may feel sore after their first tui na treatment. Like acupuncture, tui na is based on the system of meridians in your body to restore your body Qi (energy) flow. Because tui na helps to restore the free flow of Qi and the natural balance of yin and yang, the whole body will feel relief. 076b4e4f54
