In a recent study acupuncture reduced the length, pain, and the persistence of migraines. Migraines are a common occurrence, whether it be because of stress or an underlying condition. The main form of treatment is often painkillers, but that can bring many negative side effects in the long run. Chinese medicine is an all-natural way that gets rid of migraines for an extended period of time and has no side effects. The benefits of acupuncture, can be enhanced with Chinese herbs. Long term treatment with Chinese medicine often results in overall better health, both in body and mind.
