Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) is named after the Japanese physician, Dr. Toshikatsu Yamamoto, who developed this acupuncture system in 1973. Since its introduction, YNSA has advanced with the discovery of additional acupuncture points, which are mainly located on the scalp. YNSA is used to treat neurological conditions, and is both effective and immediate in in stroke patients with pain and/or restricted mobility. As a result, the use of YNSA has increased and has become the most frequently used form of acupuncture. YNSA comprises basic acupuncture points (somatopes) mainly on the scalp, as well as on other body regions. In addition to providing symptomatic relief, YNSA can sometimes be curative therapy.
The duration of the workshop is three days, 8 hours a day.
The workshop is an active learning workshop during which the participants will learn the basic acupuncture points which were first described by Yamamoto and which are currently used to effectively treat a wide range of neurological and orthopedic conditions.
