The safe and effective practice of acupuncture has been used in China for thousands of years to treat many debilitating conditions, including the symptoms of migraine. Acupuncture has continued to exist and is now flourishing in the western world as a safe, painless, and drug free method of relieving the pain and other neurological symptoms associated with this disorder.
Traditional Chinese medicine does not recognize migraine as one particular syndrome, but instead aims to treat the specific symptoms particular to each individual. Chinese medicine asserts that all pain is blocked life energy, or Qi. This energy flows through the body on channels known as meridians, which connect all of the major organs. Illness of any kind arises when the cyclical flow of Qi in the meridians becomes unbalanced. Acupuncture stimulates specific points (located near or on the surface of the skin) that have the ability to alter the conditions of the body.
Best of all, acupuncture is a drug free option for relief from migraine symptoms. The practice can alleviate the pain and other neurological phenomena associated with migraine without the possibility of rebound headaches, addiction, gastrointestinal disorders, or death.
