What is Neurofunctional Acupuncture?

Neurofunctional acupuncture is a type of acupuncture that uses fine, solid needles and electricity to stimulate the nervous system. It is a science-based technique that follows the anatomical and functional organization of the peripheral and central nervous systems.

Here’s an example treating shoulder pain, specifically targeting the infraspinatus (suprascapular nerve), levator scapula (dorsal scapular nerve) and rhomboid in a patient who had chronic shoulder pain.

Neurofunctional acupuncture is a powerful tool that can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. It is based on the understanding that the nervous system is responsible for coordinating all of the body’s functions, including movement, pain, and sensation. By stimulating the nervous system with acupuncture needles, we can help to restore balance and function to the body.

Neurofunctional acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that has been used for centuries. It is a natural approach to healing that can be used alongside other therapies, such as medication or surgery. If you are looking for a way to improve your health and well-being, neurofunctional acupuncture may be a good option for you.
