Studies indicate that stroke acupuncture therapy can make all the difference in a stroke patient’s recovery. The Stroke Rehabilitation and Dementia Care Clinic at Emperor’s College Acupuncture Clinic delivers a specialized program of stroke rehabilitation and dementia acupuncture care to successfully address the individual needs of each patient.
Our goal-directed approach to stroke rehabilitation and dementia care complements other medical treatment and tailors acupuncture therapy to help patients:

- enhance cognition and memory
The Rehabilitation and Dementia Care Clinic at Emperor’s College Acupuncture Clinic treats individuals that have suffered a stroke and those who are at risk of having a stroke. We also provide treatments for dementia patients. Clinical practice has shown that stroke survivors can expect the best results the sooner they start acupuncture rehabilitation therapy.
“I recommend patients start their acupuncture treatment as soon as possible after the onset of a stroke.” -Jian Feng Lee, LAc
Studies show that stroke survivors treated with acupuncture therapy in conjunction with other rehabilitation treatment have experienced a greatly increased cure rate and decreased disablement rate.
On average, stroke patients see greater overall improvement when treated with acupuncture while receiving other treatments such as physical, occupational and speech therapies resulting in a higher level of functional independence and higher standard of living.
