The simple answer is Yes.
Are you plagued by chronic headaches/migraines? Up to (one in six) suffer from chronic migraine, headaches. Scientific research shows that Acupuncture can be more effective than medication in reducing the severity and frequency of chronic migraine, headaches.
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. Science shows that over 50% of Migraines in woman are associated with their Menstrual cycle and more prevalent in Teenagers. 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 40-45 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.
