Will acupuncture work for head ache?

Hi friends, I am new here. Last day, I met a lady who is specialized in acupuncture treatment. I met her at a wedding event. During the event, I was struggling with a severe headache. So I couldn't enjoy the moments there. When I was taking rest, she came and sat beside me and we started talking. I came to know that she was an acupuncture therapist in Toronto. Then we discussed on this headache. I told her every minute details on this. This headache has been started for two years. I am still taking treatment for this but I am not satisfied with the treatment and its effects. While stopping the medicine, the pain again starts with the same intensity. Actually, I am planning to try some other treatments. I think I met her at the right time. She talked about the possibilities of acupuncture treatment on headache. She added that it is safe and non-invasive therapy used for natural healing and reducing pain. Really that was the first time I heard about acupuncture treatment. I would like to know more about this treatment procedure. If anybody has prior experience with this treatment, please share your valuable reviews. Based on your reviews I have to take a decision.

  1. Hi Patriciawalt,

    Welcome to the Migraine.com discussion forum and sharing your story with us!

    This is one complementary therapy I've not tried, but know many who have good results with is. There are a few studies that indicate acupuncture works for some of us with migraine disease. This is an answer from Dr. Mauskop, a migraine/headache expert in NYC on this topic; https://migraine.com/blog/acupuncture-for-migraine/.

    This link as additional information on acupuncture you may find helpful; https://migraine.com/?s=acupuncture&submit=Go.

    I hope this helps and let us know how you make out if you try it!

      1. I tried several treatments with a very experienced practioner. She indicated that I should receive relief after about 6 sessions but unfortunately I am still suffering.
