Headaches

Acupuncture, Headaches, Migraine Headaches, Stress Relief.

Acupuncture Relieves Headaches and Migraines. Acupuncture is very relaxing.  The small filaments that we call needles are painlessly inserted into acupuncture points.  When these points are stimulated, or activated, energy flows along energy pathways (meridians) where there were previous blocks.

When relieving the pain and discomfort associated with headaches and migraine headaches, acupuncture works wonders.  There are many energetic causes for headaches and migraines.  In essence, there is either not enough energy (qi) going to an area, or there is a lot of energy in an area that is blocked.  Acupuncture works by increasing the amount of energy available to and allow energy to flow where it had been blocked.  Does this make sense?  Please feel free to send us an email or to call us for clarification.

In addition to relieving the pain from Headaches and migraines, Acupuncture is very relaxing.  People feel invigorated. refreshed and relaxed after a treatment.  When we feel this way all of our activities are easy and our sense of wellness are improves.

By unblocking the channels, the energy in your system becomes abundant. This promotes the feelings of wellness, confidence and vitality. The  circulation of blood and vital fluids increases.  This increases health because the nutrients become absorbed from the digestive tract and via the blood become distributed in the body.  Toxins get are eliminated easily and naturally.

Acupuncture – The Benefits and Versatility

The Versatility of Acupuncture

No-one expects a car to run without being properly maintained. No-one expects to ignore their own dental care and avoid problems with their teeth and gums.  What regular preventive acupuncture treatment can do is prevent small imbalances from becoming large illnesses and diseases.  It’s an investment in your future and current health and well-being.  The return on your investment is tremendous

If you are currently is discomfort, there is a wide range of health and well-being concerns that acupuncture and Chinese medicine address.  In my 35 years of practice, both as an acupuncturist and an R.N., the diversity of needs successfully treated with acupuncture is extremely wide and deep.  For example, women have been able to get pregnant when they were struggling, as well smoothing out the menstrual cycle and menopause.

Children and teens who’ve been diagnosed with hyperactivity, emotional distress: including anger, sadness, depression. and anxiety have returned to “normal” with ACUPUNCTURE alone,  without drug and medication intervention, much to their and their parents’ relief.  The same emotional issues in adults are also treated successfully with acupuncture.

As we age, we all too often experience joint pains, back pain, headaches, sleeping disorder, high blood pressure and a host of chronic conditions, which acupuncture alleviates.

The list goes on from here:

  • PTSD
  • Skin rashes
  • Headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • IBS
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Auto Immune Condtions
  • Addiction

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine help to manage chronic illness and reduces, if not eliminates, suffering.  When Chronic physical and emotional states are not addressed, they become worse. The good news is that what will become worse if left untreated gets better when we address the situation.  The situation is your energy, your vital life force.  Our energy system is similar to what I mentioned earlier regarding your car. To feel good and to run well, you need to maintain and repair your energy, just like you do with your car.
