Acupuncture is a safe and well-known component of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the insertion of thin needles into specific pressure points on the body. After insertion, the needles are manually or electrically stimulated to increase blood flow, and thus circulation, in the areas around the needles. The goal is to increase blood flow and reduce tension.
Acupuncture is an alternative treatment that may be effective in managing certain pain conditions, including migraine headache. The Diamond Headache Clinic offers acupuncture for migraines to help patients find their own balance between lifestyle adjustments, medical therapies and alternative treatments.
