Acupuncture & Headaches

If you are someone who suffers from chronic headaches, you may be a great candidate for acupuncture and or herbal medicine.

Acupuncture is a process that involves inserting fine needles through theskin at various points on the body. It is a medically accepted and a proven method for treating all types of headaches and to promote overall wellness.

We can assist you with healing here at California Neurohealth in San Luis Obispo if you are looking for relief from your migraine headaches, tension headaches, menstrual migraines and post concussive headaches, as well as headaches due to weakness from chronic illness.

How does acupuncture benefit your head pain?

Acupuncture works primarily by providing a sensory stimulus to the nervous system that results in an improvement in function. Keep in mind that many systems of your body are stimulated during acupuncture, which can provoke and amplify a healing response.
According to Chinese Medicine, there are numerous channels on the body and on those channels are points that correspond to neurovascular bundles. These bundles are dense collections of blood vessels and nerves also known as acupuncture points. These channels and Chinese Medical Theories reflect the various neurological, myological (muscle), sclerotogenous (relating to connective tissue and ligaments), embryological, homologous homunculus relationships (for example treating the whole body from a small part like the ear or the hand or the foot) and are congruent with the current body of knowledge in human physiology. These points are stimulated by the insertion of needles to affect the body through the understanding of this complex relationship of anatomy and physiology.

Is acupuncture effective for post concussive syndrome headaches?

Absolutely! Many patients enjoy their first bout of clarity and enjoy their long standing post trauma headache being broken, after acupuncture! Acupuncture is a great treatment for pain relief of all kinds but especially helps people who suffer from migraines and headaches of all sorts. Acupuncture can also be used in conjunction with nearly every other treatment available such as abortive and prophylactic medications, Botox injections, chiropractic neurology, massage and behavioral therapy.
