What are you waiting for? Relieve your headaches today!
Migraines and headaches can have a serious, negative impact on your life. An estimated 25% of all people experience a migraine headache at some point in their life, sometimes once a month, sometimes a few times a year, and some people have daily headaches. Oftentimes, medicine can be prescribed to help manage symptoms, but unfortunately there is no cure. Acupuncture is a natural remedy with over 2000 years of clinical experience, without the side effects of many pharmaceutical drugs.
A Licensed Acupuncturist will look for the root cause of the headache, rather than just treating the symptoms. In addition to potential immediate relief during an episode, regular acupuncture treatments can benefit as preventative medicine, reducing the severity, duration and frequency of these occurrences. The practitioner will choose the appropriate acupuncture points to clear energetic blockages, allowing for the free flow of Qi. This results in balancing the mind and body, and promoting health and well-being.
Acupuncture Today published an article titled “Acupuncture Superior to Drug Therapy for Migraines” which sites a study published in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine that compared the results of migraine treatment with acupuncture versus drug therapy. The acupuncture group experienced significantly fewer symptoms, missed fewer days of work, and found the treatment to be more cost-efficient than the group who received the pharmaceutical therapy.
