Relief from headache pain safely, naturally and without drugs
Acupuncture is widely recognized as a safe, fast, and effective treatment for chronic headaches, as demonstrated by recent research and body imaging technology. It offers headache relief without the side effects that over-the-counter and prescription drugs can cause.
The most common cause of headaches is dehydration, which is best treated by drinking water. There are, however, many other causes of headaches such as seasonal allergies, stress, and poor diet. Symptoms can include:
- Pain at the top of the head
- Pain behind the eyes and temples
- Pain in the jaw and teeth, or pounding behind the ears
Headaches can be dull or throbbing, sharp or stabbing, mild or excruciating, clustered or fleeting. They can even lead to migraines. In fact, headaches can interfere with your ability to participate in daily activities and should not be accepted as “normal.” They are one of the most common indications of imbalanced or blocked Qi (pronounced “chee”).
Our clinic uses Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnostic methods to identify the points on your body where acupuncture will best unblock the flow of energy causing the headache symptoms. Once these channels are unblocked, the recurrence rate drops significantly and, in some cases, disappears entirely.
