So the previous post introduced a brief history of Xing Nao Kai Qiao (XNKQ) therapy, a technique that I mastered during my time in China. Lately, I administered XNKQ therapy on a stroke patient. Her post-stroke presenting symptoms included dizziness, blurry vision, and inability to coordinate balance, gait, eye movements, and weakness of the left hand. CT scans and MRI revealed lesions on the right cerebellum. Neurologic exam findings corresponded to the clinical report.
For her treatment, I used acupuncture point combinations that specifically target the location of the lesion and presenting symptoms. The patient was able to fully relax during the treatment and experienced instant improvements on vision, clarity, balance, and grip strength after treatment. XNKQ therapy worked just like how it did in China. It was thrilling - 110% confidence in my acupuncture skills and ability. We look forward to expecting a full recovery with further treatments.
While I was in China, I met patients from all over the world. Among them were American patients who traveled as far as 7,000 miles to receive authentic acupuncture treatments at the First Teaching Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These patients made mark improvements that would not have occurred without acupuncture.
There was a young American patient who had a stroke about 6 years ago, leaving a large part of her left brain damaged. She had a few acupuncture sessions with Dr. Shi while he was visiting the United States and she spoke her first word in 3 years. Her mother then decided to take her to China to receive more authentic acupuncture treatments at the Tianjin hospital. There, she made remarkable progress.
I am proud to provide the same level of services here in America at Benefit Acupuncture.
