Migraines and Headaches

Acupuncture for Migraine and Headaches in London

Migraine is a condition that impacts a huge number of people in the UK every year – so much so that an estimated 25 million days are lost from work or school every year because of it, at a cost of around £2bn to Britain’s economy.

Anyone who’s ever had a splitting headache will know the misery it can cause. For migraine sufferers, the pain is multiplied several times, so it’s good to know that acupuncture for migraine and headaches can have an incredibly beneficial effect in reducing and even completely eradicating symptoms and episodes.

Migraine in particular comes with a number of unpleasant symptoms which can include temporarily impaired vision and light sensitivity – and the attacks can last from several hours to, in very extreme cases, a few days. Over-the-counter remedies are often ineffectual, offering little or no relief.

How acupuncture for migraine and headaches can help

The use of acupuncture to treat migraine and headaches dates back to the earliest known practice of this highly-regarded complementary therapy more than 2,000 years ago – and its remedial effects can be achieved without causing the unpleasant side-effects of some non-prescription medicines, such as tingling, sleepiness, flushing and tightness in the chest and/or throat.

Used either on its own as a single treatment process, or as part of a suite of complementary treatments, acupuncture for migraine and headaches represents a holistic approach to managing and treating both the presenting condition (the headache or migraine) as well as the underlying causes.

How your acupuncturist tackles your specific condition will depend entirely on the symptoms you’re displaying, and these can vary from person to person.

Acupuncture for Migraine and Headaches in London

The factors we’ll take into account include the specific location of the pain in the head (this can be behind the eyes, in the temples or at the top of the skull), when the headache or migraine occurs and whether there are any specific behaviours that precede or coincide with the onset of pain, the things that relieve your pain – or make it worse, and the type of pain you’re experiencing.

Once we understand the specific nature of the condition you have, your therapist can use their experience – backed by state-of-the-art technology – to identify exactly where the source of the problem is located and then tailor a patient-specific plan to treat it.

Acupuncture for headaches and migraine is painless, using needles to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, redistributing your inner energies to reset your biological responses and bring balance to your health.

Headaches are always debilitating. Severe headaches and migraine can be extraordinarily life-restricting. The pain can leave you feeling exhausted and as though you have reached the end of your tether. But it’s reassuring to know that the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating these conditions over the course of many centuries means there’s can be light at the end of the tunnel.
