Licensed Acupuncturist

It depends on the case - the nerves involved and the degree of damage. An acupuncturist would be better able to assess in person. In general, acupuncture can help with neuropathy. For example, one study showed that acupuncture helped nerve conduction in peripheral neuropathy (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17355547).
