Acupuncture comes with many benefits. For chronic headache sufferers, acupuncture can provide long-lasting relief from the pain associated with headaches as well as migraines. This non-invasive treatment also does an excellent job of preventing headaches and improving an individual's overall quality of life.  At Pennridge Wellness Center in Perkasie, we are dedicated to providing our patients the care they need to live pain-free lives.

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture works by restoring the flow of energy throughout the body. Thin needles are inserted into different pressure points, depending on the symptoms you are experiencing. These points are called meridians and are usually close to your nerves. When acupuncture needles are correctly positioned along these meridians, it can help to reset the nervous system activity. As a result, this therapy can dramatically reduce pain caused by headaches and migraines.

Many patients suffering from headaches or migraines have several acupuncture sessions throughout the month. Each session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. These needles are left in the skin for a few minutes allowing the patient to relax. The majority of patients notice the benefits of acupuncture after their first sessions.

How Acupuncture Treats Headaches

Acupuncture helps patients experience pain relief associated with migraines and other headache types. It also helps by easing pain. Acupuncture helps by stimulating meridians that promote the production of endorphins that work as the body's natural pain-killer.

Many patients that have had acupuncture treatment for their chronic headaches experience reduced frequency. After enough acupuncture sessions, patients will experience lasting benefits.  The main goal of acupuncture is self-healing. It may take 5 to 8 weeks after starting treatment to notice significant improvements in the severity and frequency of headaches. By 13 to 16 weeks following treatments, considerable improvements are expected.

Acupuncture for headaches is far more effective than other forms of treatment such as medications. In addition to treating headaches, acupuncture is also beneficial in treating menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, asthma, low back pain, and many other health-related issues.
