Headaches and Migraines pain relief

headache painAcupuncture and headaches and migraines
Who has never had a headache?
Headaches are extremely common and challenging and are one of the most frequent reasons for patients to visit family doctors and affects all ages and sex.
Much research has been conducted and has concluded and recognized by the WHO that acupuncture is very effective in treating headaches.
Tension headaches, cluster headaches, organic headaches are all caused by different reasons of which acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine can help.
With spring just around the corner people are prone to get more migraines due to the increase in wind. According to traditional Chinese medicine when the liver is out of balance it can aggravate it and cause migraines. The 3 evils of the Liver is alcohol, overthinking, and the wind, and spring time is also when the liver is most active.
According to traditional Chinese medicine causes may be due to internal organ balance, meridian blockages, external pathogens, qi, blood, dampness, and many other possibilities.
Treatment plans vary depending on the type of headaches and Chinese medicine diagnoses, and it is especially important for patients suffering from chronic headaches to adhere to the treatment plan. In some cases, maintenance sessions are needed, and Chinese herbal medicine is recommended in order to maintain the energy balance and prevent recurrence of headaches.
The liver benefits from sour, bitter foods. Eating salads with arugula and radicchio lettuce will help the liver stay in balance. Also dandelions are helpful, of course only organic, untreated with chemicals, you can also drink dandelion teas.
Give acupuncture a try, I have treated many clients with headaches/migraines successfully and they are happy to not be in anymore pain and discomfort.

Low Back Pain relieved by 80% in one treatment

I treated a client today that was working on a fence and had hurt his back in the process,

and when he came in he couldn’t sit or lie down without a lot of pain and also had a hard

time bending forward.  After his treatment he indicated that his back pain was relieved by 80%.

I recommended having a few more treatments to help his back heal quicker to get 100% relief.

After just a few minutes of having the needles in he indicated that there was no pain while he was

lying down where he said that he couldn’t lie down at home like he was during the treatment.

He also didn’t take any medication to alleviate the pain but acupuncture did!

Give it a try, why suffer from your pain!

Balance Method Acupuncture

Balance Method Acupuncture is acupuncture using distal points and is very effective with instant relief.

I have recently treated a male who had shoulder surgery 5 months ago and by using the BM acupuncture needles

were not put in the shoulder at all.  My client commented that he had more mobility and less pain in seconds.

He has had 3 treatments now and has no pain and more range of motion and commented it’s been the best since

he has had surgery.  BM acupuncture can treat any kind of pain, anywhere in the body.

Come for a treatment today.  Call 403-948-7800.
