Acupuncture for hemiparesis

The treatment of hemiparesis occupies a major place in acupuncture clinics in China. Hemiparesis after a cerebral insult has a better prognosis than post-traumatic hemiparesis.

Paresis after poliomyelitis can also be treated successfully. Personal experience in the treatment of spastic paresis shows a significant reduction of the spasm in 30% of patients. Early treatment of paresis after cerebral palsy has especially good results. Even in long-standing paresis amazing improvements are often achieved.

According to Chinese ideas a pronounced deficiency disturbance is present in paresis, accompanied by a blockage of Qi and blood. Pathogenic internal wind disturbance is also often found. The large intestine and stomach channels are primarily affected, i.e., the Yang-Ming, so that points on them are mostly indicated, with deep needling into the muscles. Electrical stimulation intensified the effect of acpuncture and counteracts musular atrophy. Moxibustion is also useful for pronounced cold and weakness symptoms and provides supplementary tonification for the wedakened patient.

In the treatment of paresis acupuncture is carried out for two or three cycles of treatment, each of ten to 12 sessions. If there is no success of treatment after one cycle, scalp acupuncture should be tried.

Having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility I went for treatment with Daian. She made me feel at ease straight away and gave me support and advice alongside the weekly acupuncture sessions. Three months later I discovered I was pregnant (without any other interventions). We welcomed our baby into the world almost 11 months to the day after my first visit to Daian. I really believe it would not have been possible without her!I remain a regular client and I can’t recommend Daian highly enough.

Daian is an extremely talented and caring professional and I cannot say enough about how helpful and effective her treatments have been. I highly recommend a visit here if you are thinking about acupuncture. The atmosphere is peaceful and calming and Daian’s highly effective skills and treatment provides welcome relief from chronic pain in a calm in a restful environment.

It was an incredible experience and I would like to call it “magic”! I had not been able to sleep well for several months, and my whole body felt hard when I lied in bed, especially the neck and shoulders. Daian found a little lump on the back of my neck at the consultation . 30 minutes of acupuncture after, I immediately felt my neck relaxed. I did it again two days later, and the lump just disappeared! I went to sleep easily for the first time in months! Thank you, Daian! Thank you, the wonderful Chinese medical treatment!!

I have been going to Daian for treatment for many years now. She is a kind and compassionate lady who is also very accomplished in Acupuncture. I have suffered with severe Vertigo for many years, having had medication, exercises etc to no avail. Having treatment with Daian has completely changed my life - I very seldom have symptoms now, thanks to acupuncture but, if it flares up, a visit to the clinic soon settles it down again. My husband has also recently started to attend her clinic to have treatment for migraines and this, also, has been very successful. I would recommend Dr Daian Zou highly.

What Our Patients Say

  • ~ Gwen Box – Feb 2012

    "I first consulted Daian after a knee injury which conventional medical care had failed to improve. After acupuncture treatments, the knee steadily got better and has now healed completely. Since than, I hace continued with regular acupuncture treatments in order to maintain good health and physical well-being. I can thoroughly recommend Daian's practice and therapies."
