Headaches can be a pain in the……

The reasons why we get headaches seems like a never ending list:

  • Sinus
  • Neck strain
  • Stress
  • Virus
  • Medication side effects
  • Eye strain
  • PMT
  • Jaw problems……see I told you so!

The good news is, acupuncture is an excellent thing to do to help with your headaches. Interestingly a number of acupuncture points will can reduce headaches even if the cause of them is unclear. Some points are so amazing they can help all sorts of different pains & aches.

When you have acupuncture it’s our intention for the pain to reduce immediately once you have acupuncture. Once the pain is gone you have a nice rest and let the acupuncture help your body turn down those pain signals. Also, acupuncture is a bit of a relaxation hack. Meaning it can really chill you out quickly. 

Of course if you have had headaches for a long time and not been checked out by your doctor, we’ll insist on the that to be on the safe side. And generally, if you have had headaches over a long period of time it can take a number of treatments to keep them away. Not to get relief but to really keep them away. That’s what we’d prefer for you anyway.
