YNSA Weekend Seminar

Avi Amir


Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) is named after the Japanese physician, Dr. Toshikatsu Yamamoto, who developed this acupuncture system in 1973. YNSA is used to treat neurological conditions, and is both effective and immediate 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 is sometimes curative. .

Workshop Duration

The workshop's duration is 20-22 hours which is spread over two and a half days, 8 hours/day. The workshop is an active learning workshop during which the participants will learn  the YNSA  macros stem acupuncture points, which were described by Yamamoto and which are currently used to effectively treat a wide range of neurological and orthopedic conditions.

In the workshop, participants will learn and practice the location and indications of the four different needling groups of YNSA.


Workshop Program
  • Introduction – Who is Dr. Toshikatsu Yamamoto and the background of the discovery of YNSA.

  • Learning the location and function of the basic points, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H.

  • Learning Ypsilon, ( internal organs) points and cranial nerves points.

  • Neck and elbow diagnoses.

  • I,J, and K somatopes.

  • Tinnitus and master key points.

  • Learning when and how to apply YNSA.

  • Demonstration of YNSA treatment.

Course outcome

At the end of the workshop, each participant will have an understanding of YNSA and acquire the basic skills to apply YNSA to a patient with acute or chronic pain or a neurological disease. This newly acquired skill should become part of the practitioner's therapeutic tool box and stimulate the participant to expand his/her knowledge on the application of YNSA with other therapeutic modalities in other clinical settings.
