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

So first off let me say I'm terrified of needles, and I actually allowed Shaheed to work on me. If it wasn't for his good natured disposition and the ability to make me feel comfortable we probably wouldn't of made it past the first treatment.

Thank goodness I did, Shaheed is very good at what he does and he focuses on overall wellness as well as specific areas that need to be address.

I suffer from back pain and headaches due to a biking accident.

Acupuncture has been the only thing that has helped control my headaches. it also has helped to balance my metabolism and mood which is a nice bonus.

Testimonials

Hip Pain

Shaheed has performed not only acupuncture, but cupping and massage to help alleviate the chronic pain in my hip. I look forward to my weekly visits. Shaheed and his staff truly care about your well being. This is much better than pain medication that alters your being.

It is the frist time I have acupuncture. I was nervous at first but they answered all my questions and were very nice. I felt relaxed as soon as I walked in the office. The atmosphere in the office is great. Acupuncture is really working for me. I highly recommended.
