In recent years David has been involved in clinical research investigating the influence of YNSA acupuncture on patients during rehabilitation. This research is being conducted at the rehabilitation clinic at the Bnei Tzion Medical Center in Haifa, under the direction of Dr. Katlyn Goldenberg. As part of this project David established a treatment protocol within the hospital Rehabilitation Center in which scalp acupuncture is combined with physiotherapy. The combined treatment seems to lead to faster and more efficient rehabilitation.
