Both headaches and migraines are quickly becoming a significant health issue for many Americans. 


In fact, according to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraines are a public health issue with serious social and economic consequences. 


Healthcare and lost productivity costs associated with migraines are estimated to be as high as $36 billion annually in the U.S. More than 90% of sufferers cannot work or function normally during their migraine.


Tension headaches, also known as “stress headaches,” are the most common type of headache. Compared to migraines, tension headaches are dull, constant pressure or pain, usually on both sides of the head. These headaches can last for days or minutes and come back when a person is under stress.


Headaches and migraines can be debilitating to the sufferer and often compromise many aspects of life. To make this issue worse, many people today are more stressed and have a worse sleep than ever before. 


At Modern Acupuncture, we believe that there is a strong connection between high stress, poor sleep, and the rise of headaches and migraines. All of these issues can have a hugely negative impact on overall health and keep one suffering for many years. 


Acupuncture Can Help Minimize Pain and Support Restorative Sleep


Many headache and migraine sufferers acknowledge that high-stress levels and poor sleep worsen their symptoms. All three conditions act as continuous triggers that worsen pain, sleep quality, and stress levels. With high-stress levels and insufficient sleep, the body lacks time to rest, relax and rejuvenate, all essential parts of the healing process. This situation makes it increasingly difficult for anyone dealing with the pain of headaches and migraines to find relief in the short term or long term. 


Fortunately, Acupuncture can provide pain relief for the common types of headaches and migraines while promoting a long-term, pain-free, healthy lifestyle.


I suffer from Migraines. I went to MA to see if acupuncture would help with them. It is the most relaxing experience. I have had 3 sessions and I have left totally relaxed each time. Everyone is exceptionally friendly, and the acupuncturists are extremely knowledgeable. On my second session I went in with a migraine starting. By the time I left it was gone. I have been getting at least 2 migraines a week. I have only had 1 minor headache since I started acupuncture. I would HIGHLY recommend Modern Acupuncture!”  - Melissa (TN)


We view Acupuncture as an effective therapy to treat the root cause of all three conditions. Utilizing this modality can provide pain relief, reduce stress and improve sleep simultaneously! 


The first goal of any sustainable treatment plan is to provide pain and symptoms relief quickly. Reducing pain levels and the frequency of headaches and migraines is vital from the onset of care. While some patients respond right away and others take more time, focusing on symptom relief is often the first necessary step to progress. 


High-stress levels and poor sleep quality make headache and migraine symptoms worse and more challenging to treat. With Acupuncture, our focus is on balancing the body's natural stress response and also increasing the release of endorphins, the body’s own ‘feel-good’ and pain-relief chemicals. This dual effect allows for a decrease in stress levels, while improving sleep and regulating pain levels.


Headaches, migraines, sleep quality, and chronic stress are clearly linked. Not only does Acupuncture help with these issues, but it also addresses the root stress issues that are causing all three issues in the first place.


If you suffer from any or all of the following: headaches, migraines, sleep issues, and high stress, visit your local Modern Acupuncture clinic for an experience that can significantly improve your health. 


There are multiple science and research studies to explain how Acupuncture works to relieve headaches and migraines. This ancient therapy has received many endorsements from research institutions and hospitals around the world. 


FAQ – Does Acupuncture Hurt for Treating Migraines or Headaches?


You may feel a little sensation or tingle at the point, but most patients don’t feel anything at all and often fall asleep during their treatment because of how comfortable they are. Keep in mind that the acupuncture needles are extremely tiny, often smaller than a strand of human hair. Your acupuncturist will make sure that you are comfortable and adjust any point during your acupuncture session that causes discomfort.


Acupuncture Minimizes Pain
