Acupuncture for Migraine Headaches

Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine that has been around for thousands of years; although conditions treated today are different compared to its origin date, acupuncture remains effective for almost any non-life threatening condition including migraine headaches.

The specialty of treating migraine headaches with acupuncture came into fruition due to long-term inefficacy of prescription medication and injections.

Common migraine headaches treated:

  • Tension type headaches induced by stress and lifestyle habits
  • Excruciating cluster headaches affecting predominately one side of the head
  • Migraine headaches without auras
  • Migraine headaches with auras including visual & auditory disturbances
  • Sinus related headaches
  • Hormonal headaches related to menstrual cycles, pregnancy, & menopause
  • Trauma induced headaches
  • Headaches caused by cervical disc herniation and other vertebral causes
  • Headaches related to hypertension
  • Headaches related to postural abnormalities

Acupuncture is a superior form of treatment for migraine headaches

  • Acupuncture has less side-effects compared to Rx drugs and injections.The side-effects occurred by acupuncture are positive in nature and can be described as feeling less stressed, improved energy, and most importantly reduced frequency and severity of headaches.
  • Acupuncture needles are 30%-42% thinner than hypodermic needles used with botox injections for migraines.
  • Acupuncture produces additional benefits such as a significant increase in quality of life, better production at work, more time spent with family and friends.
  • Acupuncture is more cost-effective when compared to money spent on prescription medication and deductibles when visiting medical doctors.
