Migraines are a very common ailment that people will most likely experience at some point in their lives. In fact, migraines affect over 12% of the US population which is more than both asthma and diabetes combined. It is a growing concern in the country and as the concern grows, the search for new treatments grows. Luckily, there is already a treatment readily available for anyone that suffers from migraines but it’s commonly overlooked. This treatment is known as acupuncture therapy.
Recent studies have shown that acupuncture can reduce the intensity of migraines and decrease the frequency of the migraines as well. Subjects to these studies reported that it was much more effective than any pain killers they were previously taking. This is due to the fact that acupuncture targets certain points in the body to release natural neurotransmitters, also known as endorphins, to help the body cope with the pain on its own and not have to rely on pain medication. Acupuncture also targets the pain at its source, unlike pain killers that will not target that specific pain alone.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, then you can find relief through acupuncture therapy:
· Pain on one side or both sides of your head
· A pulsating, throbbing pain
· Sensitivity to lights and sounds
· Nausea and vomiting
· Blurred vision
There are many different ways that a migraine can be triggered – it could be through a hormonal change, your body’s reaction to certain foods or drinks, symptoms from a medication, or many other ways. However, regardless of the source, acupuncture can treat your worst migraine symptoms and provide long-lasting results. Don’t take pills on a daily basis to find relief, take part in acupuncture treatment to see true results!
