Cerebral Palsy Research
Researchers at the children's hospital, Zhejiang Medical University in China spent over a year researching the effect of acupuncture and acupressure treatment for children suffering from infantile cerebral palsy (ICP).
75 children took part in the study which involved comprehensive meridian therapy including scalp and body acupuncture supplemented with acupressure and massage. The number of treatments each child received ranged from a minimum of 10 to a maximum of 120, the exact number being assessed according to the child's needs.
The effect of the treatment was measured by evaluating the children's performance of physical exercise, social adaptability and their intelligence quotient (IQ) both before and after the treatment period. The results revealed " a very positive improvement in the children's physical capability and an increase of their intelligence."

In another study seventy five children with Cerebral Palsy were treated with a comprehensive meridian therapy including scalp and body acupuncture, acu-point injection and auriculo-point stimulation, supplemented with acu-pressure (shiatsu) and massage, and functional training.
Each child received a minimum of ten treatments in a twenty day period, and a maximum of 120 times within a year. The effect of the treatment was evaluated by analysing the children’s performance of physical exercise and their social adaptability, and the intelligence quotient (IQ) of 30 children who each received 6 courses of treatments was compared prior to and after treatment.
The results showed that the treatment produced a ‘very positive improvement in the children’s physical capability and an increase of their intelligence’.
