Prestigious US Hospital embraces Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture
MAJOR Breakthrough!!! Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture is now introduced to patients in Good Samaritan Hospital Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, Mission Oaks campus in San Jose, California. Thanks to Dr. Allen Kaisler-Meza and Dr. Elisa Yao, both well-known physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, who incorporate acupuncture to bring patients the best integrative medical approach possible. Among all the 177 hospitals in 20 U.S. states and in the United Kingdom, Good Sam’s is the second HCA hospital in which Dr. James Lu initiated acupuncture program.
Zhu’s Scalp Acupuncture or Zhu’s Neuro-Acupuncture, developed by Prof. Ming Qing Zhu, is a unique acupuncture technique that has been proven to be the most effective acupuncture treatment for acute and chronic nervous system disorders. It's concept of “needling + Daoyin” where Daoyin refers to any activity that augments the needling effects fits very well into Good Sam’s multi-disciplinary rehabilitation model.
