Migraines and Headaches

When was the last time you were free from migraines and headaches?

Did you wake up this morning and reach straight away for the pain relief? Or, did you miss the kids coming home from school because you were in darkness lockdown?

Migraines are not just headaches, that’s for sure, but migraine symptoms don’t have to rule your life either.

Tension headaches, sinus headaches, headaches that occur around the menstrual cycle and migraines can all be treated with acupuncture.
