Acupuncture Treatment for Migraines

Acupuncture is known as a traditional Chinese medicine. Migraines are often a result of reduced energy and or blood flow causing pain to one or both sides of the head. In response to the reduced blood flow to the brain causes tension and lack of oxygen to the brain. Some tension headaches occur and then the pain can grow stronger into what some call migraines.

The acupuncture treatments approach on migraines is to relieve the tension by maximizing the blood flow to the brain and giving the brain the oxygen needed. During a 15 to 30 minute acupuncture treatment the brain senses normalization of blood flow, and as seen in numerous treatments the blood vessels will result in constricting back to its normal diameter within the extra cerebral intracranial.

Basically acupuncture treatments approaches migraines and reduces vasodilatation, which is where the blood vessels from the brain widen due to the relaxation of the smooth muscles within the vessels wall, since there is now more room for blood your blood pressure drops. The reduction of the vasodilatation gives the brain more blood, which is what the brain needs.

The Chinese believe rather than feeing the brain drugs to help with the pain due to the lack of blood, why not give the brain the blood. Not only does it save you from putting chemicals into your body but it helps solve the problem and gives the migraine patient the relief not from a chemical but from the body’s own vasoconstriction which is Constriction of a blood vessel, as by a nerve. This approach prevents migraine sufferers from having to deal with the side effects of prescribed medications but reduces chances of reoccurrences of migraines, it is said the 6 to 12 treatments will have the results in years without migraines.
