Treated in our Boulder office of Open Gate Acupuncture.
Headaches are a fairly common complaint that Chinese medicine can treat relatively effectively. Chinese Medicine differentiates headaches into about 10 different types. Your treatment depends are your constitution, severity, length of time you have suffered from the problem, and the Chinese Medical differentiation. This approach aims at uncovering the source of the headache and correcting it versus just finding a solution to stop the pain once it has occurred. There are though many people that specifically call when they are getting a headache, because acupuncture can greatly ameliorate such a situation once it has occurred.
More importantly , though, is to correct the problem. There are many that have come in with chronic headaches / migraines that no longer have the problem or the severity and frequency is greatly diminished.
