Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Traditional Chinese Medicine theorizes that the more than 2000 acupuncture points on the human body connect with 12 main and 8 secondary pathways called meridians. Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners believe these acupuncture meridians conduct energy, or Qi (pronounced "chee") between the surface of the body and internal organs. Acupuncture promotes the natural flow of Qi and balances yin and yang to keep the normal flow of energy unblocked and restore health to the body and mind.
Acupuncture and Headaches
Acupuncture is not only effective for migraine headaches, but it also works very well with tension headaches, cluster headaches, post-traumatic headaches, and disease-related headaches that might be due to sinus problems, high-blood pressure or sleeping disorders. The greatest advantage of acupuncture over Western medicine is that is does virtually no harm. Some medications can have serious side effects and can (in some instanced) actually lead to patients experiencing a "rebound" headache. Unlike synthetic drugs, acupuncture has virtually no side effects and the procedures for treating headaches are much less invasive with acupuncture than with surgery. Make sure you make an appointment with one of our acupuncturists so they can help treat and prevent your headaches!
