Headaches and Migraines

Stop the Migraines!
Headaches can have many causes, from dehydration and tension to hormonal imbalances and misalignment of cranial bones. Traditional Chinese Medicine holds that many aches and pains in the body, including headaches, are a result of an imbalance in energy flow. This energy, known as Chi runs along paths in the body known as meridians and can easily become out of balance and experience congestive points that cause pain. By setting the Chi free from these congestive points and by restoring balance to the flow, the pain and discomfort can be diminished, or eliminated.
Break the Cycle of Pain!
Acupuncture works to address the imbalances of the life course, or Chi, as it flows along the energy channels, known as meridians. The tiny needles that acupuncture uses, when correctly applied by a well-trained practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine can balance your energy. Acupuncture can also help to relax muscles, which can alleviate tension headaches, TMJ headaches, and even migraines. You can also experience a highly relaxed state following your acupuncture treatment, followed by a feeling of well-being and increased energy. Besides your energy being restored to its proper flow, brain chemical such as endorphins and serotonin can be triggered by an acupuncture treatment and add to your relief.
