Can acupuncture reduce chronic headaches and migraines?

Simple answer…yes!

But HOW?! In acupuncture terms whenever we feel pain there is a blockage of energy (we call Qi “chee”) that is prohibiting the flow of nutrients, blood, and energy to an area, thus creating the feeling of pain. Read more about how acupuncture works by reading our previous post about how acupuncture helps migraines.

So, acupuncture helps to reduce pain by restoring the body’s flow and replenishing nutrients to the areas that need it aka “unblocking the qi”.

Result: pain is gone.

What does the research say?

According to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, acupuncture may have lasting effects
in helping reduce chronic migraines. Participants in the study reported fewer migraines per month after receiving traditional acupuncture treatment during the four-week study. Participants who received the acupuncture treatment also reported less migraines in the following month after treatment. These results are significant for people who suffer from chronic headaches and migraines; acupuncture can prove to be a long-lasting alternative to help reduce the number experienced each month.
