Headaches and Migraines

In Chinese Medicine, headaches are considered to be the experience of stagnation or turbulence in the circulation of energy and blood flow. This may be due to injury or internal imbalances in the organ systems created by the stressful lifestyles that most of us lead.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs have an excellent chance to not only relieve a headache in progress but to eliminate the source of the headaches and help restore a person to an improved quality of life. You will start to feel better in a few weeks but in order to treat the underlying cause it usually takes 2 months.

Acupuncture is not only effective for migraine headaches, but also works very well with tension headaches, cluster headaches, post-traumatic headaches, and disease-related headaches that might be due to sinus problems or high blood pressure.

Pain is caused by a blockage in circulation. When you have a lack of blood flow, your muscles and nerves do not get the nutrients they need to function normally.

· Muscle tightness presses on nerves

· Muscle tightness presses on blood vessels and stops normal blood flow

· Acupuncture relaxes muscles

· Acupuncture restores normal circulation and blood flow

In treatment of headaches and migraines, there is also the exploration of what triggers may be present in your life. Avoiding these triggers, and improving the diet and lifestyle in general are some the additional ways in which migraines and headaches can be avoided.

I received an acupuncture treatment with essential oils. I came to Sage with pain and left pain free. Sage is excellent at acupuncture. I have had several treatments over the course of two years by another acupuncturist prior to coming to Sage, this was the Best treatment I have ever had. I plan to come back routinely for massage and acupuncture.
