Headaches & Migraines

Migraines are a chronic neurological disorder characterized by moderate to severe headaches, and nausea.

The typical migraine headache is unilateral (affecting one half of the head) and pulsating in nature and lasting from two to 72 hours; symptoms include nausea, vomiting,  increased sensitivity to light and increased sensitivity to sound.

The symptoms are generally aggravated by routine activity. Approximately one-third of people who suffer from migraine headaches perceive an aura—transient visual, sensory, language, or motor disturbances signaling the migraine will soon occur.

Whether you have chronic headaches or migraines, acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system to reduce pain, improve blood circulation, reduce muscular tension, induce relaxation and move stuck chi (energy).
