Migraine Pain Relief with Acupuncture – Minneapolis, MN

Ever suffered from a headache? It could have been a tension headache, cluster headache, sinus headache, rebound headache or a migraine headache. The good news is that acupuncture can address ALL of these headaches. As you read further we will focus on migraines today.

Migraines can run in families. They also affect more women than men. A migraine can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours. It can be on one side or both sides of the head. The quality of pain can vary from a mere throbbing to a moderate or even severe pain that interferes with normal activities. Some people have to literally lie down to recover. And even that will not always offer relief in some cases.

Other symptoms of migraines can include nausea and/or vomiting, as well as sensitivity to lights and sounds. A migraine aura can manifest as visual distortions and physical sensations. The visual symptoms can be flashes of bright light, wavy lines, seeing spots and distortion of the size and shape of objects. Physical sensations can be numbness in one hand or weakness on one side of the body.

So How Does Acupuncture Work and How Will It Relieve Your Headaches?

Acupuncture has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat pain by activating the body’s natural painkillers. But how does it work at a cellular level? A University of Michigan study used brain imaging to show that acupuncture modifies your brain’s long-term ability to regulate pain.

Here’s just a few more benefits of Acupuncture:

• Stimulates endorphins and other neurotransmitters to control pain

• Reduces stress and promotes a sense of comfort and well being

• Promotes homeostatic normalization and regulation of all body functions

• Stimulates prostaglandins to reduce inflammation and swelling to prevent tissue damage

Suffering from migraines is unnecessary because acupuncture may offer you great pain relief. This ancient therapy is safe and effective. Discover your optimal quality of health with acupuncture and live migraine free.

  1. I have had two members of my family (both now deceased) who suffered excruciating and debilitating pain from migraines that were never controlled with medication. I regret that I had not discovered the benefits of acupuncture when they needed it. I strongly recommend that sufferers try acupuncture treatments.

  2. I have had a chance to speak with several (ex-)migraine sufferers who have been treated by Steven Sonmore, and they are quick to share their stories of their improved quality of life with new patients that come into the office. Acupuncture is the first therapy I would recommend to anyone looking for headache relief.

    When i am suffering from a migraine, i just take some slow deep breaths and then do some light massage for more relaxation.

    Muscle tension can cause headaches and by relaxing muscles, especially in the neck, it is possible to relieve migraine headaches. Once the technique is learned there is no longer any need for the biofeedback equipment. The patient with migraine headaches can now produce the desired effect any time they wish. Sometimes too much salt can cause headaches. And by simply lessening the salt intake headaches can sometimes be prevented. Some migraine headaches are caused by food sensitivities. Certain foods can cause migraines and eliminating these foods can prevent migraine pain. Some common foods that can trigger migraine headaches are cheese, alcohol, monosodium glutamate (a food additive), nuts, beans, caffeine, chocolate, onions and others.,
