HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES
Headaches and migraines can be the bane of a sufferer’s life, often striking at the most inconvenient or inappropriate times.
Migraines are often completely misunderstood by those who haven’t suffered from them before, with people just thinking it’s like a headache when in actual fact migraines cause such immense pain they can often affect your ability to do simple tasks like standing up and coughing. It may cause complete agony and in most instances, they affect your eyesight and cause considerable irritation and pain in them.
There are many different medical and therapeutic treatments for headaches and migraines in the sphere of Western medicine including pain-killers and preventative measures such as avoiding long periods of time spent looking at a computer screen and even things like aromatherapy. However, more and more people are turning to acupuncture to help them manage their condition.
HOW CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP WITH MIGRAINES?
Acupuncture, whilst being more associated with aching muscles and back problems, has also been effectively used to combat repeat and persistent headaches and migraines. This is due to the fact that the improved circulation that comes with acupuncture sessions has the added side effect of boosting your body’s own natural pain killing system, therefore effectively helping to relieve the tension you feel when migraines set in.
It also helps by relieving your stress which can often be a trigger for serious headaches and migraines.
