effectiveness of acupuncture for hair loss

for hair loss (including circular hair loss), we apply a substantial amount of acupuncture needles to the hair loss area.
acupuncture needles are applied to the hairline and the center of the hair loss area. the acupuncture needles are inserted along the hairline and into the skull using acupuncture diversion.
many patients with a hair loss problem have swelling in the neck area.
this is called myxedema, and it is a case where the muscles themselves have become worse without being noticed.
it is important to treat the neck area as well.

in the treatment of hair loss, the most important thing is to reduce the amount of hair loss rather than to make hair grow.
therefore, treatment of the affected area alone will slow down the healing process.
in addition to the treatment of the affected area, treatment of the neck will improve the blood flow from the neck to the head and improve the autonomic nerve function through treatment of the neck, which will affect the whole body in a positive direction.
