Alopecia Areata

Posted by: admin on Jan 29, 2009 - 12:32 AM
Scalp Acupuncture

Alopecia areata is characterized by sudden and local hair loss. Usually, it is caused by mental trauma and emotional disturbance. The hair falls out in round or oval-shaped areas which are 1-2cm in size with clear boundary. They are going to combine together when the number increases.

The selection of stimulation: Motor and sensory area of foot and upper three-fifths of sensory area.

Scalp acupuncture may make hair growing back again in some patients. Combining with some body points which are on liver/kidney/heart meridians, will bring better result out.
