Anthony, can you please help me with another acupuncture question? I went for my first time today for anxiety and it was very nice and relaxing. She is a third generation Chinese Medicine and acupuncturist from China.
I also showed her an alopecia areata spot that I had come up in October. It was about the size of a quarter right in front of my crown. The spot is gradually filling in, but it is still very thin and sparse. There is no completely bald spot anymore, but from a distance it just looks like scalp because the hair is so so sparse. She said that she treats this frequently. Today I had needles in my ear, my hand and my ankle. She was going to do some type of scalp acupuncture, but I told her that it made me nervous, so she didn't do it. Can you please ask your acupuncturist about this procedure? She showed me the instrument she would use. It is a plastic thing kind of the size and shape of a toothbrush. At the end is a small circle of very short thin prongs. I guess needles. She said something about a plum flower shape. She said she taps this on the bald spot to improve the circulation. I searched online and found some info on acupuncture for hair loss. There was quit a bit but who knows what is real or not.
Please, please, please will you ask your professional what they think? I trust your opinion and experience very much. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!! Jennifer
