Migraine & Headaches
Say Bye To Migraine
With Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) takes a holistic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of Migraines and Headaches.
The individual and their respective history and lifestyle are important when attempting to understand the cause of the condition, and when considering the most effective treatment.
How Does It Work
Acupuncture and TCM can help in the treatment of Migraine and headaches by:
Providing pain relief
Reducing electrical waves in the brain associated with migraine
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 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.
