Headaches, Migraines & Sinus
Headaches, migraines and sinus pain can be debilitating conditions. Often pharmaceutical drugs used to treat these afflictions can have little effect, and may have negative side-effects. Acupuncture is a safe and drug free way to treat these conditions, and can be most effective.
Acupuncture has been used to treat headaches, migraines and sinus for over 2,000 years, and there is now much evidence showing it’s use for the effective relief of pain.
Trained acupuncture practitioners can pinpoint pressure points in the meridians believed to trigger these issues. Acupuncture needles are used to stimulate these areas, encouraging the release of endorphins (the body’s natural pain killer), and increase blood flow and oxygen levels in the blood near the afflicted area, releasing tension and allowing healing to begin.
Acupuncture can be an effective antidepressant – without any harmful side effects. Stress, insomnia, depression and anxiety are all treatable with acupuncture. Not only can acupuncture alleviate symptoms associated with mental health issues, it can treat the root cause of the problem by helping to rebalance the body’s internal environment.

Sports injuries can occur for any number of reasons, and can manifest as acute or chronic injuries. Often sports injuries involve inflammation and reduced range of motion of the affected area, coupled with soreness and a variety of pain sensations.
Anti-inflammatories, pain relievers, and physical therapy are often prescribed to assist with these types of injuries. However, drugs can have harmful side effects and physical therapy is often a lengthy process that takes several weeks to produce any results.
Acupuncture and cupping often produce an immediate decrease in pain and dramatically shortens recovery time by decreasing inflammation, increasing blood flow and restoring muscle function.
