Yamamoto acupuncture is effective for reducing pain.

I'm reposting this because I'm at present having this type of scalp acupuncture and this was my first treatment.

Recently my Intergrative Medical Practitioner gave me Yamamoto neuro-acupuncture for chronic head pain. On the side of my head that was pain free I felt no discomfort. However I felt significant pain on the painful side when the doctor inserted the very fine needles.

I was nervous as I've heard needle acupuncture is not suitable for CRPS/RSD sufferers. I continued to feel the needle insertion pain for several minutes. However in a short while the pain went and the muscles in my face visibly relaxed. The pain in my head did go but came back several hours later.

The thing that I have noticed most is a feeling of calm. I feel that it would be an effort to stress if that makes sense. Now whether that is due to the acupuncture or to the doctor telling me to think of the sound
so as I breathed in and hum as I took long breaths out.

I'll post more about Dr Yamamoto's acupuncture in future posts.

Hi Jeisea,
Thank you for everything you write. I am a new sufferer of CRPS, and I am trying to fight the battle from every front. I was hoping you could tell me a little more about Yamamoto acupuncture. I really want to try it and while living in the US, no one know what it was. Now that I am in Sydney, I am hoping you can help point me in the right direction to find someone who does it here. Traditional medicine is not helping me, so I am hoping to turn to new treatments.
Thank you for everything!

Hi Kelsey

I'm caravaning in Northern Queensland at the moment but will return in a few weeks. My GP will know who is trained in Sydney and will ask him.
Please email me so I can personally let you know.
