Acupuncture for headaches and migraines
It has recently been National Headache Week and the team at Ambrosia has been busy successfully treating headaches and migraines.

The pain of headaches and migraines can impact every aspect of your life. Acupuncture can offer powerful relief without the side effects that prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine have been used to relieve Headaches and Migraines, as well as their underlying causes, for thousands of years.

We aim to treat the specific symptoms that are unique to you using a variety of techniques dependent on a number of variables: Is the headache behind your eyes and temples, or more on the top of your head or in your sinuses? When do your headaches occur (i.e. night, morning, after eating particular foods, at a particular time in your menstrual cycle)? Do you find that a cold compress or a dark room can alleviate some of the pain? Do you describe the pain as dull and throbbing, or sharp and piercing?  These questions will help create a clear picture on which we can create a treatment plan specifically for you.  The length, number and frequency of treatments will vary from person to person.  Some symptoms will be relieved after the first treatment, while more severe or chronic ailments often require multiple treatments.

Since the early seventies, studies around the globe have suggested that acupuncture is an effective treatment for migraines and headaches. Recent studies show extremely positive results:  In a study, published in the June 2003 Issue of Medical Acupuncture, doctors found that acupuncture resulted in the resolution or reduction in the frequency and severity of cluster headaches, and a decrease or discontinuation of medications. It was concluded that Acupuncture can be used to provide sustained relief from cluster headaches and to stimulate adrenal cortisol to aid in discontinuing corticosteroids.
In a study published in the November 1999 issue of Cephalalgia, scientists evaluated the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of migraines and recurrent headaches by systematically reviewing 22 randomized controlled trials. A total of 1,042 patients were examined. It was found that headache and migraine sufferers experienced significantly more relief from acupuncture than patients who were administered "sham" acupuncture.

Work, stress, alcohol and poor diet choices combined with lack of exercise can create disharmony in the body which then leads to pain in one form or another according to the system of Chinese Medicine. This disharmony can be treated effectively with  Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs to bring about lasting improvement.
