Headaches be gone! Acupuncture brings relief to headache and migraine sufferers.
Almost everyone gets a headache at some point in time. A headache can ruin your day, and if you get them often, can really get in the way of your daily life.
Acupuncture has been successfully used to relieve headaches and migraines (as well as their underlying causes) for thousands of years, without the side effects that prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause. Acupuncture always looks to the underlying causes as well, and thereby can help to prevent any future occurrences.
Headaches fall into three main categories: tension-type, migraine and cervicogenic. A tension headache is the most common (and usually mildest) type of headache, and can be caused by stress, lack of sleep, bad posture or substance withdrawal, including nicotine and caffeine.
Cervicogenic headaches are the most recently diagnosed type of headache and are musculoskeletal in nature. They may be caused by pain in the neck or spine that is transferred to the head.
Last but not least, and perhaps the most debilitating, is migraine.
Migraine is a condition defined by a painful headache and nausea, often accompanied with an increased sensitivity to light and sound, vomiting and a pulsating sensation, which is usually only present in one side of the head. Typically, a migraine can last from a few hours to as long as three days. Approximately 75% of sufferers are female.
Acupuncture to the rescue! Because “headache” is a blanket term for over 200 conditions that fall into multiple classifications, the symptoms (and treatment) depends on the type of headache. Migraines and headaches can be treated preventatively, and a few treatments will clear up most migraine patterns, permanently.
Each person is evaluated individually – history and other symptoms are taken into consideration, so the treatment points will vary. The treatment is painless and gentle.
