So many people have benefited from acupuncture treatment for headache. It works on energy levels to reduce and even more to correct the cause of headache. If you know anyone near you, I will recommend to get acupuncture treatment.
Hope you are getting better in no time.
In treating the headaches with acupuncture, the practitioner will not only consider the symptoms but mostly will look to treat the root cause of the symptoms. From the Chinese medicine point of view, headaches can be caused by too much liver energy, or too much heat in the body, not enough energy, low kidney energy, accumulation of phlem, emotional imbalance etc. Treating the underlying imbalance will take care of the symptoms. Also the acupuncture treatments aim to clear any blockages in the flow of energy and to balance all the organs and balance the system at all levels body/mind/spirit. Last but not the least, acupuncture is a natural method, stimulating the body's inner mechanisms of healing.

According to Chinese medicine precepts, there are many different underlying causes for headaches, and these are addressed during acupuncture treatment. Most important is instantaneous relief of HA pain when I employ Dr. Tan's balance method of acupuncture.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is an excellent way to rebalance and heal the body, mind and spirit, as all are treated during an acupuncture treatment.
Find a well trained acupuncturist, one with a Masters degree in Chinese Medicine and begin your healing journey soon. I know you will be well pleased.
Thank you for your interest. Mari
Most definitely, acupuncture works great for headaches. There many causes for the headache, including your internal organ functions. Acupuncture helps not only the symptoms, but the root cause as well.

It is definitely worth a try. Even single treatment can help to minimize the frequency since acupuncture (not getting into all anatomy and regulatory mechanisms of our body and how it could be beneficially effected by certain nerve fiber stimulation) can merely provide better blood circulation to the brain and that would be already a major headache pain relief, whether it's a migraine, cluster headache, or tension headache.
Yes, acupuncture could help with frequent headaches. We offer a free consultation if you would like to speak to the doctor so he can explain better how acupuncture and other natural treatments can help you.

Headaches can be based on many different reasons. Acupuncture helps many clients with headaches as long as the practitioner figures out why they are occurring from an Oriental medicine standpoint. They can be due to muscle tension, stress, heat rising up to the head (heat always rises), excess, deficiency, sinus congestion... the list goes on. The practitioner needs to ask certain questions, look at your tongue and feel your different pulse positions to accurately diagnose and treat. It’s definitely worth looking into.

Personally, I treat a lot of headaches that are hormonally related to a woman’s cycle. I find that herbs typically expedite the treatment response and after a few cycles of the hormones regaining balance, the patient can be weened off of both. I think it’s absolutely worth a try if you are suffering and looking for a permanent solution.

In the beginnging, you may have less headache and pain.
Later, headache will be gone.
Do you have nausea? Have you vomited due to the headache?
If it’s not a chronic headache, your acupuncture physician can help you alleviate pain within a couple of acupuncture treatments.
I recommend you visit your acupuncturist while you have a headache, so you can experience instant relief right after the treatment.
Patients should also be sure to discuss diet, exercise levels, and recent medications, as well as be open to possible necessary lifestyle changes to keep the headaches from returning.
