treating a Stroke Patient with Hemiplegia using zhu's scalp acupuncture

Watch Dr James Lu treating a patient with hemiplegia on the right arm & leg during Basic ZSA course in Melbourne June 2018. This patient flew in from Adelaide to Melbourne to participate the event.


Based on his 50 years of clinical experience and developed by Professor Zhu , Zhu Scalp Acupuncture is one of four Scalp Acupuncture systems known in China. It is recognised as one of the most effective Acupuncture systems for treating difficult conditions.

ZSA uses a microsystem on the scalp to affect different systems and areas within the body. It is an integrated system between Chinese and Western medicines and has its own map of treatment zones on the scalp.

Professor Zhu’s technique involves very short, fine needles to avoid any undue discomfort for the patient. The needle insertion is combined with appropriate stimulation techniques and specific physical movement/exercise, known as Dao Yin, to greatly increase the efficacy of the Acupuncture. 

  • The patient can easily be treated in a seated position.
  • The application of needles is painless.
  • Patients display immediate positive responses that translate into long term positive outcomes.
  • Long needle retention times, even up to 3 days, provides the patient with a continual therapeutic action.
  • It is an integrative form of medicine, informed by both Western and Chinese Medicine paradigms.
  • The necessity for ‘Daoyin’ as part of the treatment in order to achieve superior clinical outcomes.
  • ZSA is easily integrated with other styles of Acupuncture without conflict
