How it Works
Acupuncture works by stimulating the circulation of blood to the scalp increasing nourishment of hair follicles. This procedure involves insertion of numerous tiny needles at different pressure points on the desired part of the body in accordance to what is being treated. We not only perform this procedure to members of our community but also educate them on the basic theory that is behind acupuncture. We take our patients through the basics of this procedure informing them on the involved concept of qi- pronounced “chee”-a life force kind of energy that runs throughout our body allowing us to perform some of the most basic body functions such as talking, walking, eating and breathing. It is when this qi is either not sufficient, blocked or imbalanced that illness occurs such as receding hair also traction alopecia. By performing acupuncture qi is stimulated allowing blood to regain its normal flow all through the body, opening up the pores in the scalp and allowing hair follicles to grow. At Acupuncture San Diego, we serve our clients with a Community Acupuncture style that makes long lasting changes in their lives.
Techniques for Hair Loss
What our acupuncturist basically does is insert a number of very fine needles at different acupuncture points at medium depth on the body, stimulating qi and tonify the kidneys. He may also use a plum blossom needle or seven-star hammer- a tool that has several miniature needles protruding that stimulate the skin. Our acupuncturist uses this hammer to gently tap on the surface of the head (i.e scalp) which stimulates blood flow hence promoting growth of new hair.
