Yes. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), acupuncture is a good alternative and complementary strategy for stroke treatment and for improving stroke. In addition, there is some research-based evidence that doing acupuncture on the scalp may help a person who’s been paralyzed from a stroke recover some motor function. Another study suggests acupuncture may help people with one-sided paralysis following a stroke.
