Speech Paralysis and Left Hemisphere Module

Part of the Nanopuncture Seminar Series

About this Module

The voice is one of the main tools that enable us to communicate clearly, and effectively, and to represent our truest selves. Restoring speech to patients empowers them to express themselves, and for many professionals, allows them to resume their career paths following stroke or TBI. Any patient with left brain hemorrhagic disorder will need this protocol. 

In this module, participants will learn:

  • How to treat speech aphasia and dysphasia
  • Points for thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS)
  • Qigong exercises developed by Dr. Shiu to get vocal cords working
  • Use of voice to activate acupuncture points around the head
  • Bulbar paralysis
  • Cranial nerves related to speech
  • Use of facial muscles for diagnosis and treatment
  • Neurofeedback therapy components
  • Protocols related to speech and hearing, including tinnitus
  • How to improve swallowing
  • Basics of analysis from a speech therapist perspective
  • How to treat parts of the brain affected by left hemorrhagic stroke, including Broca’s and Wernicke’s areas

The Nanopuncture System accelerates concussion recovery and treats post-concussion symptoms using techniques that calm the nervous system, reduce tachycardia, increase focus, and mitigate hypersensitivity to light and other dysautonomia symptoms.

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is like a computer in our bodies that keeps many of our systems running in the “background,” including digestion, perspiration, breathing, swallowing, blood pressure, heart rate, and more.

The skills learned in this module can also be applied to treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis and golfer's elbow, hand neuropathy, bicipital tendonitis, post-surgical shoulder and hand issues, and more.

The Gut-Brain Axis module is the most recent addition to the Nanopuncture seminar series. In this course, participants will learn the relationship of the microbiome to the brain.

In the Sports and Orthopedic module, Dr. Shiu will teach participants how to apply nerve plexus resetting techniques to treat common sports and orthopedic injuries.

In this seminar, Dr. Shiu will teach the basics of photobiomodulation (PBM), qEEG, and laser therapy and how to incorporate these technologies in a clinical session.
