If you have ever suffered from a migraine, you know how debilitating it can be. Chronic migraines can impact your professional and personal life. Many migraine sufferers spend the day in a dark room to alleviate pain from light sensitivity and can feel nauseous all day long. Luckily, PIHMA College & Clinic has a treatment that can alleviate migraine symptoms and can decrease the number of migraines you suffer from. It is called Acupuncture!
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes Acupuncture as an effective treatment for migraine and headache relief. Regular Acupuncture treatments can offer powerful relief without the side effects that prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause.
How Does Acupuncture Relieve Migraines?
Acupuncturists use a variety of techniques such as Acupuncture, herbs, and Tui-Na massage tailored to each individual to restore the body to balance and remove the variety of causes of pain. Every person has several acu-points located all over their body. These acu-points are connected to your Qi (pronounced “Chi”) which is the flow of energy and life in the body. Acupuncture helps restore your Qi to balance which then alleviates pain.
The number of needles required to reduce migraines depends on the individual, and the severity and location of their pain. Needles will be placed for 20-30 minutes and then removed. Some symptoms are immediately relieved after the first treatment, while some more severe and chronic ailments often require multiple treatments.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
Acupuncture treatments are not considered to be painful and are often considered to be relaxing. Once the needles are placed, many patients become sleepy.
