Headaches

Can Acupuncture help with Headaches?

Yes, acupuncture can help with headaches in many cases in just a few minutes. It is not uncommon for headaches to reduce within in a few minutes, now of course if your headache is 10/10; using acupressure or acupuncture may not eliminate your headaches entirely but acupuncture may relieve headaches to manageable levels which save trips for many of my patients to the ER for Toradol shots or lying in a dark room for days.

There are several acupressure points when correctly located and pressed with moderate pressure for 1-2 minutes can relieve all types of headaches by 50%.

Click here for a video for detailed indications and acupuncture locations for migraine and tension headaches. These four or five points are great self care tips to keep the lost days at work or loss family time to a minimum.

Headaches come in a variety of forms.

Tension headaches are the most common type and can mild to moderate constant band-like pain, tightness, or pressure around the forehead or back of the head and neck.

About 30%-80% of us suffer from occasional tension headaches and women are twice as likely to suffer from tension-type headaches as men.
FatigueThere is no single trigger for tension headaches but tightened muscles in the back of the neck and scalp can be caused by:

  • Anxiety
  • Lack of Sleep
  • Overexertion
  • Hunger and Dehydration
  • Poor Posture on the computer
  • Emotional or mental stress, including depression
  • Nausea, vomiting and sensitivity often
    accompany migraine headaches to light.

It is estimated that 28 million Americans suffer from migraines. More women than men get migraines and a quarter of all women with migraines suffer four or more headaches a month that can last from four hours to three days.

Possible Triggers of Migraines

Headaches

  • Stress
  • Caffeine
  • Emotional
  • Skipping Meals
  • Excessive Fatigue
  • Menstrual Periods
  • Changing weather conditions
  • Changes in normal sleep pattern
  • Sensitivity to specific chemicals and preservatives in foods.

Like many of our reviews state, Acupuncture works great for Headaches.

The effectiveness of acupuncture treatments is evaluated by the reduction of  frequency, severity and duration of headache symptoms. As symptoms continue to reduce patients naturally find themselves taking less pain relievers, muscle relaxants, NSAID’s and rescue medications to control headaches.

Did you know that acupuncture is 10 times more effective and longer lasting with less discomfort then acupressure?

That’s correct, acupressure when applied with moderate pressure on the point is more uncomfortable then acupuncture.

If you have you been thinking about trying acupuncture and  if your headaches are causing you to loose time with your family or days at work then you really have nothing to loose but time.

Featured Testimonial

WHEN I WENT :: Monday 9AM appt.  Arrived at 8:50AM and left around 10:30AM.  Plenty of parking all around the building at this hour.

I scheduled my first appointment online.

When I arrived at the office, I was given an iPad to enter all of my information.

This was a nice change from having to hand-write pages and pages of personal info.

The appointment started on time. The office was nice, clean and had plenty of magazines.

WHAT I WORE :: I had to go to work right after my appointment so I was wearing black cropped dress pants, lightweight blouse and heels.

You should dress comfortably as you will be laying down on a recliner or a massage table.

I did not have to undress at all.

All of the acupuncture was performed on areas that were accessible while I was fully clothed.

WHY I WENT ::  I have been having neck and head muscle tension and pain for over a month and a half, likely due to stress and working at a computer all day.

The pain was constant and I was taking Advil all throughout the day…everyday.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS :: Shaheed is a very personable, positive person who puts you at ease right away.

He seems very knowledgeable in his work and I appreciated his communication on what he was doing.

He did not pressure me for more appointments.

After the acupuncture needles were placed, I relaxed and reclined in my room for quite a while…probably close to 45mins.

It was unexpectedly relaxing.

I wasn’t a believer, but I am now.

I felt *immediate* improvement in range of motion and easing of muscle tension.

I could only turn my head about 45 degrees when I arrived.

By the time I left and progressively through the rest of the day.

I could easily turn my head close to 90 degrees (an actually regain the ability to check my blind spot while driving!)

One day post-treatment, I still feel the benefits of the treatment.

My muscles seem to be loosening up and my range of motion staying at the improved range.

Now the only thing I’m wondering is why I didn’t go sooner!
