Migraine & Headaches

Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine for the treatment of Migraine and Headaches

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) takes a holistic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of Migraine and Headaches. The individual and their respective history and lifestyle is important when attempting to understand the cause of the condition, and when considering the most effective treatment.

A TCM practitioner will consider many factors in relation to Migraine and Headaches including:

 

  • Constitution (including potential inherited conditions)

  • Emotions ( a recent study in UCD found that ‘84% of people with Migraine also suffer from a combination of anger, fear, worry and depression’)

  • Diet (as related to potential ‘trigger’ foods related to migraines)

  • Stress.

  • Accidents (or related trauma)

  • External Pathogenic factors, including cold, wind and dampness.

Acupuncture and TCM can help in the treatment of Migraine and headaches by:

  • Reducing inflammation

  • Providing pain relief

  • Reducing electrical waves in the brain associated with migraine

  • Affecting serotonin

  • Modulating intracranial and extra-cranial blood flow.

In Chinese Medicine the head is covered by 8 separate meridians (energy channels). Meridian channels can travel the length of the body. A migraine can can lodge itself in any one or more of these. Skilled practitioners will know exactly which meridian or meridians are involved which is key when finding the source of the pain and getting rid of it.
