Acupuncture after stroke
Acupuncture has been proved effective as a treatment for post-stroke conditons such as paralysis, speech and swallowing problems, and depression. And it is commonly used in the Orient combined with western rehabilitation.
Xing nao kai qiao fa （awakening the brain and open the oriface）was created by professor Xuemin Shi who was working in First Teaching Hospital University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Tianjin.
For decades of years he and his team made lots of miracles for helping patients suffering from post-stroke conditions.
Below is a story about an American patient experienced the miracle.
He is lucky, but only two weeks treatment is not enough for him. The result should be better than it is if he could keep accepting treatment for a longer period.
