Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2011
Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine, one of the oldest and most distinguished acupuncture colleges in the nation, is now offering a Xing Nao Kai Qiao stroke rehabilitation & prevention module in its Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program. The Xing Nao Kai Qiao (XNKQ) acupuncture protocol was developed in the early 1970s by Dr. Shi Xue Min at Tianjin University, China, and has proven extremely effective in treating stroke and dementia patients as well as preventing stroke for those at risk. Emperor’s College will be the first institution in the United States to teach a module in Xing Nao Kai Qiao stroke rehabilitation & prevention, complete with clinical rounds.
“We are pleased to be able to offer this unique and progressive stroke care training in our doctoral program,” said Dr. David Migocki, Doctoral Program Director at Emperor’s College. “The Xing Nao Kai Qiao treatment protocol has the potential to drastically change the landscape of medical options for stroke patients, and I am delighted that Emperor’s College is leading the way.”
Addressing the Health Care Needs of Today’s Society
Due to its unique characteristics in the treatment of stroke patients, the Xing Nao Kai Qiao (XNKQ) acupuncture therapy has been widely used in China for the past forty years. Studies have shown that XNKQ therapy significantly increases the recovery rate among stroke patients.
With stroke being the number three cause of death and leading cause of adult disability in the United States, Emperor’s College is committed to providing its doctoral fellows with a curriculum that addresses the health care needs of today’s society. The Xing Nao Kai Qiao stroke rehabilitation & prevention module is led by Atsuki Maeda, MTOM, LAc, an esteemed stroke rehabilitation specialist trained under Dr. Shi Xue Min of Tianjin University in China.
Innovative Approaches in Stroke Rehabilitation, Prevention and Dementia Care
The Xing Nao Kai Qiao Stroke rehabilitation & prevention protocol has recently gained recognition in the United States through the documentary 9000 Needles. The documentary reinforces the need for innovative approaches in stroke rehabilitation in the United States by showing the effectiveness of an integrative stroke rehabilitation program.
The introduction of the Xing Nao Kai Qiao stroke rehabilitation & prevention module into Emperor’s College’s DAOM program responds to the increasing demand for preventive treatments and rehabilitation options in conjunction with conventional stroke care and post-stroke rehabilitation.
