Headache Pain Relief
Find relief from headache pain safely, naturally and without drugs.
Acupuncture is widely recognized as a safe, fast, and effective treatment for chronic headaches, as demonstrated by recent research and body-imaging technology. It offers headache relief without the side effects that both prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause.
The most common cause of headaches is dehydration, which is best treated by drinking water. There are, however, many other causes of headaches, including seasonal allergies, stress, and poor diet. Symptoms can include:
- Pain at the top of the head
- Pain behind the eyes and temples
- Pain in the jaw and teeth, or pounding behind the ears
Headaches can be dull or throbbing, sharp or stabbing, mild or excruciating, clustered or fleeting. They can even lead to migraines. In fact, headaches can interfere with your ability to participate in daily activities and should not be accepted as “normal.” They are one of the most common indications of imbalanced or blocked Qi (“chee”).
At Silicon Valley Natural Health, we use diagnostic methods from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) diagnostic to identify the points on your body where acupuncture can best unblock the flow of energy that is causing your headache symptoms. When these channels are unblocked, recurrence rate drop significantly and, in some cases, entirely disappear.
