Acupuncture for Headache and Migraine Pain l Scott Stephens BHSc (Acu)

Headache and migraine pain are a commonly treated problem at Mornington Chinese Medicine. As a practitioner I have found that acupuncture is a great tool that easily and effectively relieves acute as well as chronic pain associated with headache and migraine. Although every treatment is individual to the each patient I find Quixu (GB-40)  is a frequently used point for the treatment of headache and migraine.Scott Foot By stimulating Quixu (GB-40), pictured to the left of the text, we are able to relieve tension present along that meridian.

I also believe diet and lifestyle education to be an important consideration for long-term treatment and prevention of acute headaches or migraine. This is an area that is of course individual to each patient and I would be sure to discuss ways that dietary choices may be impacting their health and make suggestions at the time of consult.

I have attached a link below to a recent study which, through the use of MRI scanning, measures the effectiveness of acupuncture to relieve pain and shows that it is indeed extremely beneficial.
