Migraines and Headaches

Control stress with acupuncture


Are you plagued by chronic headaches/migraine? Up to (one in six) suffer from chronic headaches. Scientific research shows that Acupuncture can be more effective than medication in reducing the severity and frequency of chronic headaches/migraine.

The pain that headache and migraine sufferers endure can impact every aspect of their lives. Acupuncture can offer powerful relief without the side effects that prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause. Headaches and migraines, as well as their underlying causes have been treated successfully with Acupuncture and Herbs for thousands of years. Acupuncture and Herbs can be used alone in the management and treatment of headaches, or as part of a comprehensive treatment programme.

Traditional Chinese Medicine does not recognise migraines and chronic headaches as one particular syndrome. Instead, it aims to treat the specific symptoms that are unique to each individual using a variety of techniques such as acupuncture, and energetic exercises to restore imbalances found in the body. Therefore, your diagnosis and treatment will depend on a number of variables including:

Is the headache behind your eyes and temples, or is it located more on the top of your head?

When do your headaches occur (i.e. night, morning, after eating)?

Do you find that a cold compress or a darkened room can alleviate some of the pain?

Is the pain dull and throbbing, or sharp and piercing?

Your answers to these questions will help me to create a treatment plan specifically for you. The length, number and frequency of treatments will vary. Typical treatments last from 30-45 minutes, with you being treated one or two times a week. Some headaches, migraines and related symptoms are relieved after the first treatment, while more severe or chronic ailments often require multiple treatments.

I believe that peace of the Heart and Mind is a basic requisite for our lives.

Unfortunately for many, living with Anxiety is a full time job. The persistent and debilitating nature of this ailment can leave you helpless.

Symptoms Include

  • Stomach Upset
  • Constipation/Diarrhoea
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Restlessness
  • Sweating
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia

I use a multi-disciplined approach, combining Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy, Natural Herbs for Anxiety. This on top of weekly Acugraph assessments all proving to make significant results. All address body, mind, emotions and spirit. Where there is imbalance, these are very effective all combining to have wonderful results.

In reality, stress affects men and women from all walks and ages of life. Quite often, the result of exposure to prolonged negative stress, leads to issues such as pain or as a growing body of evidence reports, mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, palpitations, worrying, insomnia, physical health disorders such as Migraines/Headaches, vertigo, Irritable Bowel and much more. Complicated with this is the stigma associated with mental health disorders. While people can and do recover from these periods in their lives, the road to recovery and management of stress can be more complex than often portrayed. Diverse strategies are needed to deal with this growing complaint within Ireland, and Acupuncture is one such strategy. Our system of medicine has written about how the human body behaves for over five thousands of years. Such extensive knowledge, tried, practised and still evolving today, understands the fundamental necessity of responding to stress in a positive manner. Treatment plans therefore encompass the mental, emotional and physical aspects of the self. Specific acupuncture points calm the mind down, encourage peaceful sleep and relax the diaphragm to help breathing to mention but a few. Traditionally, acupuncture excelled in prevention of ill health and stress, is very often recognised as one of the main precursors to health problems. (Irish Heart Foundation). If we can treat to help prevent illness, then it stands to reason we can treat stress and its manifestations, be it mentally, physically or emotionally. It may be that societies and the demands of life have changed, but the human body has not.

At duohealth.ie, many of the above are treated using a multi-disciplined approach using Traditional Chinese practises such as Acupuncture, Patent natural herbs, Hypnotherapy to name a few. For more information please contact us on 086 3529164 or info@duohealth.ie
