Acupuncture For Migraine And Other Headaches

Many people suf­fer chron­ic pain be­cause they do not un­der­stand the power­ful, pos­it­ive ef­fects of us­ing Japanese acu­punc­ture for mi­graine and oth­er head­aches.

In this video, I dis­cuss the be­ne­fits of acu­punc­ture treat­ment for head­aches, in­clud­ing mi­graine head­aches, that many pa­tients ex­per­i­ence through our acu­punc­ture clin­ic.

Thousands of people have seen me (in my 30 years of prac­tice) for this life-eroding con­di­tion, es­pe­cially for mi­graine head­aches or any sort of chron­ic head­aches. There are many sorts of head­aches – there are a num­ber of head­aches as­so­ci­ated with flu’s and vir­uses and head­aches as­so­ci­ated with neck prob­lems. Some people have a con­sti­tu­tion­al tend­ency to suf­fer head­aches. So when they be­come im­bal­anced in their life­style, these par­tic­u­lar in­di­vidu­als tend to ex­per­i­ence head­aches rather than lower back pain or stom­ach prob­lems.

These head­ache con­di­tions can be re­solved with the ju­di­cious use of acu­punc­ture. I use a par­tic­u­lar form of acu­punc­ture known as Traditional Japanese Acupuncture and it is a very gentle form that was re­fined and de­veloped in Japan from the tra­di­tion­al Chinese style of acu­punc­ture. Currently, I would say that I am treat­ing any­where between 10 and 12 people a week for head­aches, in­clud­ing mi­graine head­aches.

One of my most re­cent ex­per­i­ences was treat­ing a pa­tient who had come down with a very severe vir­us with con­stant severe head­aches, where she felt her head was ac­tu­ally go­ing to ex­plode. This was an un­re­lent­ing head­ache which was giv­ing her no peace what­so­ever. The story as it un­folds is that af­ter just one treat­ment, she had ex­traordin­ary re­lief from this par­tic­u­lar scen­ario – be­sides the aching limbs and leth­argy from the vir­us, the head­aches im­proved 90% dur­ing the course of one treat­ment.

In the case of mi­graine head­aches, as dis­tinct from colds and flu’s, you have a more chron­ic situ­ation where people have that tend­ency to de­velop head­aches on a reg­u­lar basis. With wo­men, the mi­graines can oc­cur as part of the men­stru­al cycle or people can ex­per­i­ence mi­graine head­aches as a res­ult of stress or anxi­ety.

In these con­di­tions, we look at nor­m­al­ising and har­mon­ising the en­er­get­ic bal­ance of the body and to take the ten­sion and stress out of the neck and shoulder areas, to sup­port those areas of the body that are de­fi­cient and to bal­ance those areas of the body where there is ex­cess en­ergy. Invariably, with head­aches, es­pe­cially mi­graine head­aches, the ex­cess en­ergy is up in the head.

Japanese acu­punc­ture, in my ex­per­i­ence over the last thirty years, is in­cred­ibly ef­fect­ive for help­ing people to re­cov­er from and main­tain good health in spite of the con­sti­tu­tion­al tend­ency to ex­per­i­ence mi­graine head­aches.

One par­tic­u­lar in­di­vidu­al comes to mind and this lady had ex­per­i­enced mi­graine head­aches ba­sic­ally every second or third day over a peri­od of eight or nine years. These were ba­sic­ally stress re­lated head­aches and in a very short peri­od of time, per­haps two or three weeks, her head­aches were re­solved. She then went on to a main­ten­ance acu­punc­ture treat­ment where she vis­ited the acu­punc­ture clin­ic on a monthly basis. We were able to keep the head­aches at bay. The res­ult is that her life has im­proved im­meas­ur­ably and she is much hap­pi­er and her fam­ily – her hus­band and chil­dren – are also much hap­pi­er. She is now able to com­mit her­self and have much more clar­ity in her work role.

So I highly re­com­mend the use of Japanese acu­punc­ture in the treat­ment of head­aches.
