First shawl went to a 93 yrs old lady

I went to the Calgary Stroke Recovery Association monthly lunchen today. I went there to deliver my gift, a yellow canna shawl to a 93 yrs old lady who doesn’t know her age, and lives in a senior house.

I had done the canna shaw for a while, just waited patiently for the Christmas to come. It’s a perfect gift for someone lives in the senior home. I’m glad she likes it. She kisses my hands few more times after I put the shawl on her shoulders. It was a momen of pleasure in our lives. Hope the shawl will keep her warm and healthy in the senior home.

Following are the photos of the yellow canna shawl.


Also, there were people asked me whehter I had other pieces for sale. Unfortunately, I only had one for now, and couldn’t get others done tomorrow. But I will make more soon.

Dr. Jason Hao

JasonHaoDr. Jason Hao is a very successful acupuncturist and educator in New Mexico, US. Dr. Hao has practiced Chinese scalp acupuncture for few decades. You can find his information on his website http://www.scalpacupuncture.info.

Dr. Hao’s young patients have built a Facebook group to help other patients. The Facebook group is called “Hao’s Pin Heads”. There are updates of the latest miracles happened in Dr. Hao’s clinics.

Dr. Hao’s patients also started The Brain & Neurological Treatment Foundation to further support Dr. Hao’s scalp acupuncture in treating patients with brain and neurological disorders.

Here are some Dr. Hao’s articles about scalp acupuncture:

“Scalp acupuncture treatment for MS has had much success in reducing numbness and pain, decreasing spasms, improving weakness and paralysis of limbs and improving balance. Many patients also have reported that their bladder and bowel control, fatigue and overall sense of well-being significantly improved after treatment. Recent studies have shown that scalp acupuncture could be a very effective modality in controlling MS. Scalp acupuncture often produces remarkable results after just a few needles are inserted. It usually relieves symptoms immediately, and sometimes only takes several minutes to achieve remarkable results.” — Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis by Scalp Acupuncture (Acupuncture Today)

“Although there certainly are other acupuncture techniques that can be effective, such as ear acupuncture and body acupuncture, scalp acupuncture is a more effective model that brings out quicker, often immediate pain relief. In a recent investigation, scalp acupuncture was applied to treat seven patients with limb pains at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., from Feb. 11-12, 2006. After only one treatment for each patient, three of the seven patients instantly felt pain relief and showed significant improvement (43 percent), three patients showed some improvement (43 percent), and only one patient showed no improvement (16 percent), yielding a total effective rate of 86 percent.” — The Treatment of Phantom Limb Pain by Scalp Acupuncture (Acupuncture Today)

How does scalp acupuncture work?

Every moment of the day, your brain’s neural synapses and pathways are altered as result of environmental, behavioral and neural changes. Brain activity associated with a given function can move to different locations as a result of everyday stimuli, brain damage or recovery. By stimulating the scalp with acupuncture needles, scalp acupuncture helps the brain rebuild new neural synapses and pathways to recover damaged functions faster. Combined with physio-therapy and other rehabilitation activities, scalp acupuncture can drastically speed up recovery for patients recovering from strokes, cerebral palsy, and central nervous system problems.

Brain is the most complex command centre in human body. It’s the boss of your body, mind and emotions. It controls about everything you do. It also busy analysing and processing all the signals received by your eyes, ears, mouth, nose, and skin ….. It has more than 100 billian nerve cells. Each cell connects to around 10,000 others. So the total connections in your brain is more than 1,000 trillian.

Through the central nervous and endocrine systems, the structural, metabolic, hormonal and energetic functions of the brain are accessible at specific areas of the scalp surface. By stimulating these reflex areas within the scalp, through special manipulation, we can regulate and harmonize the functional activities of the brain and body.
Each part of the brain has its own function. When one area is impaired/damaged, the impaired area can recover to a limited extent. In addition, by employing proper stimulation, other areas of the brain can compensate for the impaired area.
During the scalp acupuncture session, the proper stimulation is given to certain brain areas according to the patient’s condition. The needle stimulation works as a “wake up call” for the patient’s central nervous system to build new nerve connections using healthy nerve cells.

Western biomedical effects:

Scalp acupuncture triggers a series of biochemical reactions in the body, which can target certain body parts.

Meridians and body energy effects:

Scalp acupuncture can open energy blockage inside of the brain, rebalance the body’s energy, and reconnect meridian pathways from the brain to other body parts.

Scalp acupuncture is a proven natural science and incorporates the extensive knowledge of both past traditions and present technology. Years of clinical experience have contributed to its recent discoveries and developments. The modern system of scalp acupuncture in China has been explored and developed since the 1950s. There are 4 major scalp acupuncture styles: Jiao’s, Zhu’s, Fang’s, and Yu’s. There’s also a Japanese scalp acupuncture style. Since the late 1980’s, scalp acupuncture started to gain international recognition.

Scalp acupuncture is a system of its own. WHO (World Health Organization) established a standard for scalp acupuncture lines in 1984 and it’s refirmed in 1989. But the other 4 acupuncture styles all have their features, and all have magnificent results.

In North America, there are two famous scalp acupuncture masters.
