A review of 25 clinical trials was published in in the December issue of Anesthesia and Analgesia and showed that acupuncture was an effective headache treatment. Many of our YinOva patients would agree. At our center we treat people who suffer from migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches as well as headaches related to trauma, sinus problems, hormonal imbalances and high blood pressure. We use acupuncture to treat an acute headache and can usually provide relief straight away. We also combine acupuncture and herbs to treat the root of the problem, aiming to stop headaches before they start. Many patients who have received an initial course of treatment at our center now find that they only need to come in 3 -4 times a year, for maintenance, in order to keep their headaches at bay.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine headaches are divided into 9 different patterns according to Chinese medical diagnosis.
