Chinese Medicine used to treat Headaches in Wall, NJ
Acupuncture can distribute a balance of energy of ‘life force.’ The practice of Acupuncture can be explained to be so successful because with the release of endorphin compounds to the nervous system, the pain that comes along with headaches can be diminished or eliminated. Acupuncture may also normalize serotonin levels in the brain and spinal cord, which you can benefit from if your headache is triggered by low levels of serotonin. Similarly, acupuncture can normalize and increase blood magnesium level, which can reduce your migraine headache.
