10 ways to relieve a Migraine

migraine

Acupuncture can be effective at reducing migraine symptoms immediately, and also for treating the cause of the migraines in the first place. Research has shown that Acupuncture is effective as medication in relieving episodic migraines¹ Migraines often have multiple triggers, whether it be hormonal, fatigue, stress, dietary, sinus, or muscle tension related. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can alleviate these triggers, and the migraine pain, at the same time!

Depending on the individual case, a course of treatment can be as short as 4 sessions to more like 6 if hormones are involved. Once you’re experiencing less migraines, then you need to maintain the balance. A great Acupuncturist will advise you about how you can best maintain your health and prevent a migraine, in your particular case.
