“I WILL DEVOTE MY ENERGY TO A LIFETIME OF HEALING THROUGH ACUPUNCTURE”
Dr. Shan Kong




“THERE WERE FOUR THINGS WHICH THE MASTER TAUGHT—LETTERS, ETHICS, DEVOTION OF SOUL, AND TRUTHFULNESS"
Confucius
(552 B.C.—479 B.C.)








Acupuncture for Headaches

Headaches are pain in the region of the head or neck and extremely common. Headaches may result from any number of factors, like tension, stress, muscle contraction, vascular problems, sinusitis, menstruation-related, post injury, migraine, side effects of certain medications.

How does acupuncture work for Headaches?

Acupuncture can effectively relieve headaches whatever the causes, simultaneously treat their underlying diseases.  Acupuncture increases local blood flow and along with it, an increase in nutrients and immune cells. These are the ingredients for healing. There is also evidence that acupuncture tends to have a balancing effect on brain chemistry, hormone levels, and immune cell function. Because the brain controls everything in the body, a balanced brain should allow for more effective healing, speeding the reduction of headaches.

Course of treatment

It may take a few acupuncture sessions for general headache; may need more sessions for chronic and complicated headaches. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
