NAI’s mission is to train Doctors of Oriental Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturists and Medical Acupuncturists in the art and skill of Neuroacupuncture.
NAI launched the inaugural Comprehensive Training in Neuroacupuncture Program (CTNP) in June 2017 with the intention of training as many licensed acupuncture practitioners and physicians as possible, addressing the demand for treatment for central nervous system disorders.
“If you wish you could do more to help patients with seriously debilitating central nervous system conditions, you will benefit from attending this course.”

Phase II of NAI’s strategic plan is to conduct research with the intention of furthering the science and establishing credible data supporting the remarkable results of Neuroacupuncture. Currently, NAI is pursuing viable research opportunities through several Medical Universities as well as through independent researchers.
NAI offers training in data collection within the Comprehensive Training in Neuroacupuncture Program. Practitioners are asked to collect data, provide case studies, prepare posters for presentation at Integrative Medical conferences and write articles for submission to peer-reviewed journals. NAI will gather the data to develop a comprehensive resource library.

A 6-year-old patient with cerebral palsy was treated with Chinese scalp acupuncture. The Speech I, Speech II, Motor, Foot motor and sensory, and Balance areas were stimulated once a week, then every other week for 15 sessions. His dysarthria, ataxia, and weakness of legs, arms, and hands showed significant improvement from each scalp acupuncture treatment, and after 15 sessions, the patient had recovered completely. This case report demonstrates that Chinese scalp acupuncture can satisfactorily treat a child with cerebral palsy. More research and clinical trials are needed so that the potential of scalp acupuncture to treat cerebral palsy can be fully explored and utilized.
Acupuncture, a therapeutic technique of Oriental Medicine, can be traced back more than 2500 years. Throughout its long history, acupuncture has evolved as its own unique traditional medicine. By embracing newly developed knowledge and technology, the profession continues to create additional methods of treatment. Techniques such as electrical and laser acupuncture and even new acupuncture points are currently being developed. We believe scalp acupuncture, which integrates Western medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine, to be the most significant development that Chinese acupuncture has made in the past 60 years.
Chinese scalp acupuncture is a contemporary acupuncture technique with just 40 years of history. It integrates traditional Chinese needling methods with Western medical knowledge of the cerebral cortex and has been proven to be a very effective technique for treating multiple sclerosis (MS) and other central nervous system disorders.
