Acupuncture and Migraines

Migraine headaches can be a debilitating disorder affecting approximately 18% of women and 5% of men in the United States*. Those who are sufferers know the impact that migraines can have on their lives. Many want to find relief from their symptoms in a maintainable and non-invasive way.

Acupuncture is an ancient practice that started in China 3,000 years ago. As a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is believed to work by clearing blockages from the body’s energy channels that act like dams, blocking the flow of energy within the body. It is believed when the body’s energy flow is blocked, imbalances in the body occur. This blockage then causes body pain.

Acupuncture clears blocked channels by using tiny/fine needles strategically placed in the body by our skilled acupuncturist. Many of our patients at Chiropractic Natural Care Center find the insertion of these tiny needles to be painless and find their acupuncture sessions relaxing.

Who is Acupuncture For?

Migraine sufferers tend to be individuals who live in chronic pain, often tailoring their lives around their migraine headaches. Acupuncture is an excellent opportunity for pain relief for those interested in relieving their pain without medication. In addition, acupuncture is low-risk, and there are no side effects outside of minor skin irritation after the insertion of the needles.

Acupuncture is great for those who are:

  • Seeking migraine relief without medication
  • Those looking for relief that has minimal to no side effects
  • Those who want to reduce their migraine frequency and severity

When our patients come to us for acupuncture to relieve their migraine headaches, they will receive a thorough examination while our acupuncturist takes a history of their symptoms. They will then create a plan of care that will set you on the path to success.

Contact us if you are interested in relieving your migraine symptoms using acupuncture. One of our team members will gladly assist you in setting up an appointment.
