Headache Remedies and Migrane Relief

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are very effective treatments for tension headaches, cluster headaches and migraines.  Using natural headache remedies for both headache and migraine relief.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO), acupuncture has proven effective in the treatment of headaches. At the Oriental Healing Clinic we have helped many clients manage and cure headaches and migraines, using a combination of regular acupuncture treatments and herbal medicines to restore the smooth flow of energy, relax the muscles, calm the nervous system and re-balance the body and emotions.

Most tension headaches are caused by tightening of the muscles that cover the skull, often from stress, emotions, poor posture, sitting at an office desk for long periods, over-strain, arthritis of the neck and TMJ.

If you suffer from migraines some common triggers to look out for are:

  •  Alcohol, sugar, aged cheese, fermented foods, chocolate, aspartame, MSG, caffeine, and skipping meals
  • Stress
  • Sensory Stimuli like bright lights, perfumes, smoke, and paint thinners
  • Sleep issues
  • Intense physical activity
  • Hormonal shifts especially for women
  • Medications

Try eliminating some of these triggers from your diet for a few weeks to see if the migraines subside.  Often with a food and activity diary you can narrow down some of the common triggers that are causing your migraine or headaches.
