30 year-old Vietnese young man Tommy got Hemiplegia on right side, speaking loss, hearing loss,right side vision loss in 2014 Summer after his third time Neurosurgery for Brain Tumor removal. Our acupuncturist Jarry started to give him acupuncture treatment on Sep 17th after he got approved to be Tommy's ECP(External Care Provider) by Toronto Grace Hospital. so Tommy got 2 times treatments a week and when he got the fifth acupuncture treatment on Sep 27,2015 and he told Jarry that his right hand has warm sensation and he showed him that his right hand fingers can gently move a bit. Usually he used his left hand 5 fingers to show Jarry how much pain he feel when the needle inside his body,with 1 finger shows less pain to 5 fingers lots of pain. Yesterday Oct.1st, Jarry gave him the sixth treatment and he showed Jarry by his right hand fingers. Jarry has been surprised by his significant improvement. From Jarry's 26 years experience, usually it will take at lease 3 courses(21 sessions) treatments for a hemiplegia patient to start moving a bit. Tommy was very excited by his improvement and asked Jarry if he can give him the treatment everyday so he can recover from Hemiplegia sooner. Jarry told him that it is not good for him to get the acupuncture treatment everyday. 2 to 3 times a week is best for his health condition. After one course treatment, Tommy also need at lease one week rest before he start to receive the second course treatments.
