The Plum Blossom Hammer for Hair Loss Treatment

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Acupuncture to the scalp is becoming one of the treatments of choice for men and women suffering from hair loss. People who suffer from the ailment opt to do it at the clinic of a therapist practicing alternative medicine, but there are some who do their own acupuncture therapy at home through the use of a device called the plum blossom hammer. Satisfied customers have attested to the benefits of using the plum blossom hammer for hair loss treatment.

The use of the plum blossom hammer for hair loss treatment is a relatively new concept in English-speaking nations. The plum blossom hammer is a very small hammer with that is placed with around five to seven needle points. This hammer is pressed gently against certain areas of the scalp, and its daily use is said to be an effective cure to hair loss. However, it should never be used without prior authorization and instruction from a therapist practicing acupuncture.

Acupuncture to the scalp is becoming one of the treatments of choice for men and women suffering from hair loss. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical treatment that operates on the philosophy that life force, more popularly known as “chi,” flows through the body. The unhindered flow of chi promotes good health and wellness, while obstacles to the flow of chi results in certain illnesses, depending on where the chi is blocked. What acupuncture does is to eliminate these obstacles and correct the flow of chi into the body.

In Western terms, acupuncture is supposed to stimulate the nerve endings just underneath the skin through the insertion of long and fine needles. The stimulation of the nerve endings in the treated area results in the improvement of the circulation of blood to the affected area. An improved circulation of blood in the said area means that the damaged cells in the area will be repaired more quickly and easily, and that more nutrients needed to encourage and accelerate healing will be brought by the blood to the area. Improved blood circulation also entails the development of new cells to replace the dead and damaged ones in the area.

The daily use of the plum blossom hammer for hair loss treatment, while not really proven medically to completely heal hair loss, is at least effective in encouraging the growth of new cells in the hair follicles of the scalp. The growth of new cells always means that the re-growth of hair is still possible. Nonetheless, the plum blossom hammer should never be used without proper instruction from the acupuncture therapist.
