While I was studying Chinese medicine at the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM), I had the privilege of studying under Daniel Altschuler, L.Ac., Ph.D. Daniel studied Chinese medicine in the traditional way, he spent 15 years apprenticing with a master practitioner in Taiwan, Dr. Lee Chen-Yr. While his area of expertise is in adjunct cancer care and herbal treatment of autoimmune disease, he has quite a bit of experience working with neurological conditions as well.
Below is a link to a fascinating podcast episode in which Daniel discusses the many ways Chinese medicine can help with stroke recovery and rehabilitation. Listen in as he talks about the importance of early rehabilitative movement therapy, acupuncture and herbal treatments for stroke victims.
And remember, if you or someone you know has had a stroke, acupuncture and Chinese medicine are powerful tools for regaining functional control of your body. Feel free to call All and One Acupuncture & Wellness for a free consultation for you or a loved one today.
