Acupuncture for Headache Relief

Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system, which triggers the release of chemicals like serotonin and endorphins into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals can help relieve a person’s pain. Acupuncture also helps release natural opioids in the body, and these chemicals help lessen any discomfort experienced. Therefore, if you suffer from persistent tension headaches, acupuncture can reduce the frequency and intensity.

Ancient Chinese medicine practices believe that pain occurs when a person’s energy channels are blocked. Acupuncture removes these blockages, allowing the energy to flow smoothly throughout the body and thereby supporting total body wellness.

What Triggers Your Headaches?

Before getting a headache, you may experience early warning signs. Paying attention to your body helps you recognize these signs and avoid the things that trigger your headaches. Some early warning signs may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Visual disturbances
  • Nausea
  • Tingling sensations
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Irritability and tension
  • Yawning
  • Excitability
  • Blotchy patches on the skin

Foods are another common trigger. You may already suspect that a particular food is associated with your headaches. Avoiding those foods will likely help with the frequency of your headaches.
