The Treatment

There are acupuncture points that can treat your headache or
migraine located all over the body. There is little to no sensitivity
to the insertion of acupuncture needles. They are so thin that
several acupuncture needles can go into the middle of a
hypodermic needle. Once the needles are in place, most people
relax. Some even fall asleep.Acupuncture

What Can Be Treated

Headaches may result from any number of factors. This includes
tension, muscle contraction, vascular problems, withdrawal
from medication, and injury. Acupuncture is very effective at
treating tension-type, migraine, cluster, post-traumatic, sinus, blood
pressure headaches.

Unlike synthetic drugs, acupuncture has virtually no side effects.
Additionally, the procedure for treating headaches with
acupuncture is significantly less invasive than with surgery.
