Introduction : Stroke is a sudden attack that occurs in the brain involving blood vessels in the brain (clogged or ruptured) and eventually manifests in various symptoms (starting from paralysis, difficulty speaking / slurred, swallowing disorders, and so on). This disease is divided into ischemic-infarction stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. In Indonesia, this disease has increased from 7% to 10.9%.

From the results of the review, there were 5 journals that were relevant to the topic. The journal consists of 3 international journals and 2 national journals, the next step is to review the five journals.

In these meridians there is an intricate system of connections called acupoints (acupuncture points) that bind or relate to various body functions and organs.

With acupuncture stimulation at some acupuncture points will open blood vessels and improve blood flow. based on the results obtained from these researchers that acupuncture is quite effective in the treatment of rehabilitation of stroke patients. In order to get maximum results, stroke patients are recommended not only to do acupuncture therapy. But also perform other therapeutic activities.
