Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture




Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture (YNSA) is named after the Japanese physician, Dr. Toshikatsu Yamamoto, who developed this acupuncture system in 1973. Since its introduction, YNSA has advanced with the discovery of additional acupuncture points, which are mainly located on the scalp. YNSA is used to treat neurological conditions, and is both effective and immediate in 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 can sometimes be curative therapy.
YNSA which is also called “neuroacupuncture”, was developed in 1973 by  doctor Toshikatsu Yamamoto.  
Yamamoto discovered that using acupuncture on specific points on the scalp effects sensory and motor nerves in other places in the body. Thus, for example, it is possible to treat pain in the hand, using an acupuncture point on the scalp which corresponds to the hand.
In short, the various organs in our body are reflected in our scalp and can be treated effectively through acupuncture of the relevant points for each and every organ.
