No one knows better than Emperor’s College faculty member and resident stroke specialist, Dr. Atsuki Maeda, DAOM, LAc, the tremendous ways in which acupuncture can help stroke patients. Maeda has seen it first-hand again and again in his 20 year career as an acupuncturist in Japan and the US. On one occasion, he even helped a nearly disabled stroke patient resume riding her bicycle after 3 months of regular acupuncture treatments. Not all recoveries are quite this dramatic, but there is growing body of evidence to suggest that acupuncture can help nearly all stroke patients in more ways than one.
