I had a stroke during brain surgery in 1999 & was temporarily paralized on one side. I had bad tingling on that side of the body and had acupuncture the next day. My mother had someone come to the hospital. The tingling went away, and I plan on going back actually b/c I've heard such good things. I've recouped great from the stroke & I would recoomend acupunture to any stroke patient.
