Migraines can feel extremely debilitating and unfortunately is an all too common occurrence for millions of people. Statistics indicate over 39 million people suffer from migraines in the US alone, with women being 3X more prone to them than men. During a migraine episode you may feel a throbbing and pulsing pain on one side of your head, accompanied with light/sound sensitivity, nausea and vomiting. There are over the counter medicines as well as prescription strength medicines use to treat them, but they tend to mask the symptoms and come with unwanted side effects, also, they do not address the root cause. This is where Acupuncture comes in. Acupuncture is highly effective in migraine relief and prevention, because it gets to the root of the issue and returns your body back to balance.
How can Acupuncture help provide migraine relief?
Acupuncture resolves the bodies imbalances by resolving blockages in your body, balancing hormones, stimulating the production and release of serotonin and dopamine, which help reduce pain and provide a lasting change in your body without side effects. Studies have found that "Acupuncture reduced more headache days and the times of using painkiller and was more effective in reducing the frequency and degree of headache than western medicine" they concluded that acupuncture is an "effective and safe therapy for migraine".
