Migraines are a common neurological disorder that impact a significant portion of the U.S. population. Acupuncture can help treat migraines and headaches and has been a powerful approach to help provide relief. ​Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific areas on the human body to stimulate the person’s natural ability to heal itself. In light of present day understanding, we currently realize that the nerve transmission and synapses that are stimulated through acupuncture improve the vitality of an organ’s framework. Acupuncture has the potential to manage and improve the capacity of a person’s overall well being. 

Acupuncture has been utilized to alleviate migraine pains and headaches, just as natural body treatments have helped people, for a number of years. Acupuncture and other holistic approaches can offer ground-breaking alleviation without the results that over-the-counter medications can cause, for example, haziness, queasiness, or unpredictable pulses. Acupuncture can be a positive solution for keeping headaches from occurring as intensely and/or as often. Regular needle therapy can diminish the general pressure and muscle strain, which can keep headaches under control. 

Acupuncture is effective for all types of headaches, including tension headaches, migraine headaches, and illness-related headaches. Acupuncture can decrease the quantity of migraine episodes that could occur each year, just as measurable long-term drug treatments. In contrast to engineered drugs, which can prompt patients to encounter a “relapse” headache, acupuncture is safe, gentle, and has few to no side effects.

At the point when it comes time to treat your migraine, your acupuncturist will start by embedding needles in key focus points throughout the body. Once the needles are set, the vast majority of patients relax and unwind during the treatment. For serious long-term migraine cases, it is recommended to have treatment twice a week for two weeks, followed by one treatment per week for eight weeks, and maintenance treatments of once every other week after that. The frequency and recurrence of treatments will change depending on the severity of your condition.
