Many of the medications people generally use to treat headache pain, like acetaminophen and prescription headache medications, have a number of side effects, including toxicity following long-term use.
Acupuncture resets the body’s energetics, improves circulation of blood flow, stops pain and relaxes muscle tension. All of these actions help stop headaches and don’t have any of the side effects of Western medication.
Herbal medicine can also help treat headaches and migraines. The combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine can improve overall wellness.
