Headaches are a nuisance for some and downright debilitating for others.
They can slow us down by making it hard to concentrate and interact. If the pain is bad enough it can cause us to miss work, school or worse, land us in the emergency department out of desperation. Headaches and migraines can have numerous causes such as allergies, food sensitivities, hormonal imbalances and stress.
The good news is, no matter what the cause, there are natural and safe treatments that can alleviate headaches AND prevent them altogether. From sinus headaches to full blown migraines your acupuncturist has various treatments that can help you now and in the future.
Traditional Chinese Medicine categorizes headaches by their location and associated symptoms. Locations of pain can include the forehead, the back or top of the head, the neck or the sinuses. Some of the associated symptoms can be nausea and dizziness, exhaustion, irritability, blurry vision, sensitivity to light, sound and smell, or headaches that happen during a women’s cycle. The quality of pain is also considered. Are you experiencing sharp shooting pains, dull and achy pains, or is the pain diffuse and hard to locate? Everyone’s headache is individually unique and calls for a unique treatment. All of your signs and symptoms can be grouped together to form an individual pattern that your acupuncturist can then treat to stop a headache or migraine during your session and also prevent them in the future.
If you are a chronic headache sufferer it is time to say “ENOUGH!” Take charge of your headaches and contact me for a free consultation to find out how acupuncture can help you out of suffering and into a greater quality of living.
