Headaches are defined as continuous pain in the head. Migraines are recurrent throbbing headaches that typically affect one side of the head and are often accompanied by nausea and disturbed vision.
For many people, migraines are associated with other health conditions such as depression, anxiety, IBS, epilepsy, hypertension, or allergies.
With our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system, nourish hormones, balance emotions, along with improving energy and blood flow.
The most common headaches are cluster headaches, migraines, and migraines with aura. Some headaches can be triggered by lifestyle factors including, but not limited to, alcohol, certain foods, processed meats, changes in sleep, poor posture, skipped meals, stress, neck issues, herniated discs, whiplash, concussions, weather changes, or allergies.
Headaches and migraines can affect people of all ages, from children, to teenagers, to adults. Common symptoms of headaches are a deep constant pain in the cheekbones, temples, forehead, or bridge of the nose. Pain can potentially get worse with sudden head movement or straining. Headaches can also come with sinus symptoms like nasal discharge, feeling of fullness in the ears, a fever or facial swelling. With our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system, nourish hormones, balance emotions, along with improving energy and blood flow.
At Acupuncture Wellness Services, we use a combination of modalities and techniques to regulate the flow of energy in the body to achieve outstanding results. The extensive training and experience of our practitioners enables them to successfully blend time-tested and ancient treatment protocols with modern and sophisticated therapies. One of the greatest benefits of our procedure is the ability to detect and correct energetic sensitivities to foods and the environment that might be creating symptoms in your body. Each patient is treated individually, and so the combination of techniques is determined at the time of evaluation. Our treatments integrate well with western medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, occupational therapy, dental work, and nutritional healing.
“My headaches were such a constant part of my life and I thought there was no real relief outside of treating them as they popped up… now they are so infrequent and much less severe. This has been life changing!”

“... A year ago when I came in, I couldn’t even walk down the driveway without extreme headaches and anxiety completely overtaking me for days following… I was extremely depressed and in an unimaginable amount of pain everyday. Acupuncture has helped me come out of that very dark place and begin to move again with less fear of disabling pain. I am starting to feel like myself again!”
