Acupuncture For Migraines – New Age Fad Or Miracle Cure?

When that severe migraine attack comes on in full force, you’d probably do anything to stop the pain. Painkillers and other pharmaceuticals can work well, but have you ever considered alternative therapies such as massage, meditation or acupuncture?

Could Acupuncture Give You Headache Relief?

If you are worried about the amount of painkilling drugs you are putting into your system, alternative therapies could be the answer. Acupuncture, for example, has been shown to ease, reduce and even cure the worst migraines and is a traditional form of medicine that has a rich and respected history.

Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years as a means of diagnosing and treating migraine and headaches. It is effective for all forms of head pain including:

  • Tension Headaches
  • Cluster Headaches
  • Post-Traumatic Headaches
  • Disease-Related Headaches (Sinus problems, etc.)
  • Headaches caused by high blood pressure
  • Headaches caused by sleep disorders

One of the biggest advantages of using acupuncture is that it does virtually no harm – apart from the placement of the needles into the skin, although these are very fine needles that you will hardly feel at all.

An Effective Holistic Treatment For Headaches Without Drugs

Some Western medicines on the market today can actually cause rebound headaches, but with acupuncture there are no synthetic drugs to worry about and virtually no side effects.

Another big plus of acupuncture is that it can be used as a holistic medicine. So, if you are suffering from back and head pain or you have any other accompanying problems, your acupuncture therapist can treat all of your ailments during the same session in most cases.
