Research has shown that acupuncture is effective in both preventing and treating migraines. This is good news, considering that 15% of the UK population is affected by migraines. This research is backed up by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which recommends acupuncture as a treatment for migraine.
Since researchers have concluded that acupuncture is effective for the prevention and treatment of migraines, why not give it a go yourself? If you suffer severe pain with your migraines, then acupuncture may help to provide some relief, allowing you to live your life more freely and easily, worrying less about whether a migraine will strike.
As well as migraines, acupuncture has long been used in the treatment of primary headaches and tension headaches, as well as other types of pain.
