Hear of the latest research behind electroacupuncture and neurological diseases:

Neurological disease is an increasingly common issue in our lives today, but research is building on the different ways acupuncture can help.

Through this talk you will gain a deeper understanding of how this ancient healing modality has successfully combated these fast growing diseases; how electroacupucture targets specific receptors to stimulate neuropeptides release and how this affects cerebral rehabilitation and neural synaptic repair.
