Acupuncture for Migrain relief!
Do you know that as many as 90% of adults experience tension headaches?
More than three million women in Canada have had a migraine, the most debilitating form of headache. Sixty percent experience one on a monthly basis, and 25 percent suffer weekly attacks
Acupuncture can be more effective than drugs in relieving the misery of migraine!
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has a very consistent and philosophically-based framework for headache etiology, physiology, diagnosis and treatment strategy. Acupuncture, as an effective treatment modality, has been applied to headaches from the earliest beginnings of TCM.
Acupuncture is not only effective for migraine headaches, but 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 it does virtually no harm. Some medications can have serious side effects and can (in some instances) actually lead to patients experiencing a “rebound” headache. Unlike synthetic drugs, acupuncture has virtually no side effects.

What can I expect at an Acupuncture appointment?

Does acupuncture hurt?
No. Acupuncture does not have to hurt. Some patients will feel a slight pinch when the small needle goes in but many can’t feel them at all. Acupuncture needles are very small, fine and flexible, not the same needles you would use for anything else. But these small needles will have a very powerful effect!
Do acupuncturist use disposable needles?
Yes, we use disposable needles. No needles are ever reused. The needles come to us sterilized, we use them once and dispose of them in an approved sharps container.
Can I address more than one health issue at a time with acupuncture?
Yes! Acupuncture can help reset your body to find a new equilibrium. Because the systems in our body are so interrelated (nervous system, muscular, pain, hormonal, digestion etc.) many patients report that treating one issue leads to resolving another which they thought was unrelated. I would say that’s the best side effect I’ve ever heard of!
Acupuncture has been shown to increase relaxation, reduce stress and improve sleep.
Can I receive acupuncture if I am pregnant?
Yes! I often receive referrals from midwives, obstetricians and chiropractors because acupuncture is an effective treatment for pregnancy-related symptoms such as morning sickness, back and hip pain and sciatica.
Do you treat children?
Yes! As we all know children can be more sensitive but this often results in responding more quickly to treatments than adult patients.
