Yamamoto Acupuncture for the treatment of Pain.

"Medical Acupuncture", a Journal by Physicians for Physicians in Vol 15#1 has a report on Affectiveness of New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) for relief of Pain of the Locomotor System: an Open, Prospective Topometrically Controlled Study by Thomas Schockert, MDPublish Post
Professor G√ľnter Schumpe, MD
Claudia Nicolay, MS.

What is remarkable about this study and gives credibility is that it "was performed purely for scientific reasons and did not receive financial funding from any source".

This study was undertaken because it has been observed that immediately after Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) treatments, many patients experienced long term absence of symptoms.The trial examined results after a single treatment with the aim to examine the speed of relief and length of time the relief lasted.

"YNSA seems to be a therapeutic method capable of erasing pain memories rapidly and sustainably."
"New research findings on so-called pain memory (the new science of pain I have mentioned before), which is generally established in patients with chronic pain, provide reasons why a single, short-term application of YNSA can effect elimination of symptoms lasting (in this trial) up to 382 days."

Yamamoto acupuncture is used to treat chronic pain. As far as I can ascertain it is another way of retraining the brain. Personally I used a range of things which retrain the brain. I believe thinking positively, being of mindful of things like posture and moving normally, doing things to reduce stress like controlled breathing all help. Of course mirror visual feedback is a powerful way of brain retraining. Remember you cannot feel pain unless the brain decides you have pain. I hope some of the information on this blog is helpful for you.
