TCM recognises that everybody has a unique constitution and consequently each 'type' of headache will be felt differently by each individual.
By understanding the individual manifestations of your headache, we can treat the symptoms and the root cause. Our ultimate aim is to stop your headaches all together and not just to manage the symptoms on a short-term basis.
There have been many trials into the effectiveness of acupuncture for headaches and migraine. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which advises the NHS on the treatment and care of patients, recommends acupuncture for chronic tension-type headaches and migraines. The British Acupuncture Council factsheet provides a summary of the research into acupuncture for headache and migraine and the Migraine Trust use acupuncture as a treatment option at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital.
