Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
A significant number of patients remain severely disabled after stroke despite rehabilitation with standard treatment modalities. Integrating TCM as part of patient care reduces the side effects of western medications and in many cases resolves symptoms.
Acupuncture is usually used as an alternative form of rehabilitation for stroke victims. Acupuncture therapy for stroke-caused conditions such as paralysis, speech and swallowing problems, and depression is commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It can be beneficial, especially when utilized in the early stages of post-stroke. Benefits of Acupuncture and TCM in stroke complications treatment may include:
Greater use of hands and legs
Reduction in pain
Help with difficulty speaking
Does acupuncture really work to help stroke victims improve? Many studies involving thousands of patients have been published in China and Japan demonstrated significant help. These studies indicate that patients get well faster, perform better in self-care, require less nursing and rehabilitation therapy, and use less healthcare dollars.
Treatments are given several times per week initially and gradually reduced in frequency. The number of treatments will vary depending on the individual, the severity of the stroke and the length of time from the initial stroke until treatment is begun.
In using acupuncture for stroke rehabilitation, it is important to work with a qualified medical acupuncturist. If this stroke is a concern of yours, TCM and acupuncture treatment at Asia TCM Punggol Singapore may benefit you.

Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and dates back thousands of years. It involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin or applying various other techniques to the acupuncture points to bring about healing.
Facial Paralysis is a disorder also known as "Ball's Palsy", in which the facial muscles of one side become (usually suddenly) weak or paralyzed. The paralysis causes distortion of the face and interferes with normal functions, such as closing the eye and eating. It is thought to be caused by inflammation of the facial nerve.
In TCM therapy especially acupuncture treatment has shown some effectiveness in treating this condition. According to TCM, Facial Paralysis is due to an obstruction disrupting the flow of circulation caused by pathogens invading the channels traversing the face. These obstructions prevent the vessels and muscles from receiving the necessary nourishment. The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture thus helps to correct imbalances in the facial energy and circulation.
In summary, Chinese medicine and acupuncture on a regular basis can significantly improve results and help to resolve this condition.
Origin-Point Therapy (Simplified Chinese: 原始点疗法) was invented by a Traditional Chinese Medical practitioner from Taiwan, Dr Chang Chao Han.
Origin-Point Therapy is consisted of a set of principles and a set of techniques to treat diseases. The principles are radical, even from the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective. For example, it states that the cause of illnesses is due to injury to the jin (Simplified Chinese: 筋). Therefore, when the damage to the jin is repaired, the illness is cured. Virus, bacteria, and other microbes are not in the equation of treatments of diseases, and so there is no antibiotic medication in Origin-Point Therapy. Typically, Origin-Point Therapy treatment involves nothing more than massages of the origin-points along the spine or limbs and application of warm pad on certain points of the body. The technique is simple, and yet the result is immediate and typically, amazing too.
