To be able to explain how acupuncture can treat migraines, it is good to know that there are studies emerging showing how acupuncture works.

Recent research into the efficacy of acupuncture as a treatment and prevention of migraines has shown that acupuncture decreases the frequency of migraines while also decreasing the intensity. Researchers also found a link between acupuncture and the biological mechanisms which relieve pain. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s release of Adenosine which is a natural pain reliever and may be linked to acupuncture’s ability to treat and prevent migraines. Electro acupuncture also outperformed the drug, flunarizine in the treatment and prevention of migraines. This research is promising news for anyone who regularly suffers from migraines as they can be debilitating and excruciating. If you or anyone you know suffers from migraines, and has had their life severely affected by them, you should contact an acupuncturist about treatment. You can be sure that they can help.
