Instant Neck Pain Relief Using Zhu Scalp Acupuncture
One of the best times of the year is when my Korean mother in law comes to town. She’s cooks the best food, takes care of the kids, and we get along great. I don’t speak Korean and she does not speak English so there’s nothing to argue over.
However, she’s been suffering from severe neck and shoulder pain from many years of working so hard. She had a very stiff neck to begin with and the flight over to Australia was very long as well. The pain was along the Du,GB,BL,LI & Sj channels. We decided to do scalp acupuncture first. After needling the areas over hypothalamus (part of the brain responsible for controlling pain/ motor sensory) and neck area scalp points we had her do some breathing and stretching exercises and after about 5 minutes half the pain was gone.
We kind of hit a wall after that and the pain wouldn’t budge. The neck was alot looser and free but the pain along the Trap and shoulder was still there. We included opposite side Lv4 (shu stream point for pain) and same side San Cha San (Sj2) and Sj3. After a few more stretches and several minutes later the pain was completely gone.
The pain came back but much lower the next day and it will probably take a few more treatments along with plenty of stretching and exercises.
