Why this treatment process works so well for migraines and headaches:

The root cause of your migraines is addressed

This process involves understanding and resolving the root cause of your migraines. Every person with migraines is unique. The treatment process is tailored to your specific medical history and cause of your migraines. This is why my process often provides significant relief or permanent resolution when other approaches haven't. Even for those with a long or family history of migraines.

A completely natural approach that your Doctor or Consultant probably doesn't know about

You may have been told that you just have to live with your condition, or that you will be on medication for ever. That doesn't mean there aren't any other solutions, it just means that conventional medicine has run out of ideas or possible solutions for your problem. I find that people who haven't responded to conventional treatments often respond very well to this system.

Awakening Your Body's Natural Healing System

Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to heal your migraines. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own anti-inflammatory substances and painkillers, and is fully capable of self-regulating its hormonal pathways. This system helps it do those things more powerfully and consistently.

Keeping it simple

Healing your migraines does not have to be difficult. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with this targeted natural therapy system, are a clear, concise, proven way to help your body resolve the migraines on it's own.

Here's how it works:

Root Cause Assessment

First we assess your situation to determine the root cause of your migraine. Often the actual problem is not “in your head” as you may have already surmised. There can be hormonal, immune, environmental, structural even emotional roots to your migraines and I’ll be sure to listen carefully to you to figure this out.

Treatment Plan

Next, we come up with a clear, concise, and focused treatment plan to address the cause and symptoms of your migraines. This may also include working on other symptoms you might have too (such as sleep problems, tiredness, mood imbalances and mental fatigue, pain, digestive problems). Your treatment plan will be based around acupuncture treatments, but may also include relaxation exercises, dietary and lifestyle suggestions. All of this is very clearly spelled out and is non-overwhelming.

Fast Pain Relief

We’ll do acupuncture sessions targeted towards relieving pain quickly so you get relief as your body is strengthened and begins to exit the “migraine loop”. These will start as treatments close together, to quickly reduce your pain, followed by treatments at further intervals as your symptoms reduce.

Ensure Lasting Results

Our goal is permanent migraine resolution. This is entirely possible by us following these steps (I have helped others achieve this). To consolidate the progress made in the first phase of treatment, we will continue treatments, gradually spacing them out, until your body is stable in its natural, migraine free state.

Common Questions and Answers

The subtle nature of the endocrine and neuromuscular systems responds very well to the gentle and supportive system of diagnosis and treatment that I use.  In fact, in my opinion most functional health issues are much better suited to this form of therapy than more forceful techniques like pharmaceuticals or surgery, which are better suited to structural or more life threatening conditions.

The great thing about our medicine is that we find the root cause of the problem and once it is addressed you no longer depend on our treatment.

Acupuncture has been practiced safely for centuries and in the hands of an experienced practitioner, it is virtually risk-free. All needles are single use only. 

Everybody is different and the time prognosis varies. However, most of our patients start to feel improvement soon after their first couple of visits. 

The vast majority of patients who follow our treatment plan and complete their course of acupuncture visits report improvement in their symptoms. Even those who have had their migraines for many years, and have tried many types of treatment or medication.

Because your situation is unique and once I meet with you I will be able to give you my best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome. 

Most of my patients report feeling mild sensations at the start of each treatment, followed by a sense of relaxation, peacefulness,  pain reduction and well being. This is because Acupuncture gently encourages endorphin release and homeostasis of your neuromuscular system.

I have been in practice full time since the completion of my degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine since 2006. Since then I have performed a large number of treatments, for a large variety of health problems. I continually develop my clinical skills with a range of international teachers, in various Acupuncture systems and modalities. Because of my training and continuing professional development I have membership to The British Acupuncture Council. 

Research into Acupuncture for Migraines

PubMed review: Acupuncture for the prevention of episodic migraine.

"The available evidence suggests that adding acupuncture to symptomatic treatment of attacks reduces the frequency of headaches."

PubMed Review: Acupuncture for migraine prevention.

"Acupuncture seems to be at least as effective as conventional drug preventative therapy for migraine and is safe, long lasting, and cost-effective. It is a complex intervention that may prompt lifestyle changes that could be valuable in patients' recovery."

Jama Internal Medicine: The Long-term Effect of Acupuncture for Migraine Prophylaxis.

"True acupuncture may be associated with long-term reduction in migraine recurrence compared with sham acupuncture or assigned to a waiting list."
