Migraine In the UK just under 6 million people suffer from migraines. The experience of migraine varies enormously between different people. Some people have the occasional debilitating attack while others have repeat and frequent attacks. Some attacks last a day; others can go on for several days.
Traditional Acupuncture recognises that there are different symptoms between people and not one treatment will fit all. When you come for treatment it is important that a treatment plan is tailored to meet your needs and type of migraine. I will ask questions like: how often you get them? What triggers you know about? Whether you get nauseous and visual disturbances?
Acupuncture aims to treat the person rather than just the condition, so I will also ask you lots of other questions like how well you sleep, what your appetite is like, how your energy is generally and many more. This will enable me to get to the root of your problem. By finding this out and treating your all round health more lasting benefits can be found. Most people report a reduction in frequency and intensity, with some migraines being almost totally alleviated.
