Don’t miss early registration!
Dr. Jason Hao will be teaching a seminar in Edmonton, Alberta May 2-3, 2015 on Chinese scalp acupuncture for disorders of the central nervous system. For more information visit our education page.
Chinese scalp acupuncture (CSA) is a contemporary acupuncture technique integrating traditional Chinese needling methods with Western biomedical knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the cerebral cortex. Scalp acupuncture has been proven to be the most effective technique for treating acute and chronic central nervous system disorders. Scalp acupuncture often produces remarkable results with just a few needles and usually brings about immediate improvements.
Acupuncture has been used to prevent and treat disease in China for thousands of years. Scalp acupuncture, however, is a modern innovation and development with just 40 years of history. Scalp acupuncture is frequently used in the rehabilitation of paralysis due to stroke, multiple sclerosis, automobile accidents, and Parkinson’s disease. It is also used in pain management, especially that caused by the central nervous system, such as phantom pain, complex regional pain, and residual limb pain. It has been proven to have very effective results in treating PTSD, TBI, aphasia, ataxia, and Menière’s disease.

Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (ATHM): Can you tell us a little bit about your background, including how you became interested in medicine and specifi cally acupuncture?
Dr Hao: I am from Harbin, in northeast China. I got a bachelor’s degree in 1982 and a master’s degree in 1987 from one of the best Chinese medicine universities, Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine. About 45 universities teach Chinese medicine in China, and only 6 of them are called universities; the others are called colleges. The university I attended was famous in China and the leader in teaching and research, especially for what I specialized in—scalp acupuncture. I received an excellent education and training there. I learned from a very famous professor in the scalp acupuncture fi eld, Shun Shentian. Another professor I learned a great deal from is Yu Zhishun. Dr Shun Shentian is still active and very busy.
