Acupuncture and TCM for Headaches

by Sunshine Healing Arts

 

If you experience headaches and migraines, you are not alone.  Millions of people suffer from some type of severe headache every year.  Whether your headaches are mild, or you develop severe migraines, these pains can impact your daily life and leave you looking for some relief.

While drugs and other medications might work temporarily and can help eliminate the pain quickly, common medications do not address the root cause or restore balance in the body.  And worst of all, many of these drugs have harmful side effects and are not intended for use over long periods of time.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) provide a safe and effective alternative to relieving headache pain without unwanted side effects.  Our acupuncturist will take a whole-body approach to help understand and the causes of your headaches.  The treatments will consist of points along the meridian pathways.  Some of the best points for headaches are points at the end of the channels that start in the head. After treatment, a variety of lifestyle changes and self-care techniques may be suggested to help expedite your healing process.  These changes could include physical activity, increasing hydration, and eating a healthy diet.

Acupuncture care from Sunshine Healing Arts is extremely effective in naturally reducing the frequency and severity of migraines and headaches.  By working with our acupuncturist and making some simple lifestyle changes, you will be on your way to a pain free, more balanced, and happier life!

Don't Let Cold & Flu Season Get You Down!

Don't Let Cold & Flu Season Get You Down!, Sunshine Healing Arts Acupuncture & Wellness in Atlantic Beach, Florida

Every year, thousands of people get sick with colds or the flu.  Common symptoms include nasal congestion, coughing, sore throat, sneezing, headaches, fevers, watery eyes, fatigue, and body aches. Although feeling sick is never fun, this is your body’s signal that the immune system is working to restore itself to a state of good health.  However, if your immune system is already weakened, a cold could leave you open to a more serious illness.

Traditional Chinese medical theory is that an illness occurs when certain organ systems within the body are not balanced, causing them to be weak. When our bodies are in a weakened state, this allows viruses and germs to thrive, leading to a cold or the flu.

Studies have suggested that Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can reduce the incidence of colds and shorten the length of the illness when used as a preventive measure.  If illness does occur, acupuncture and our custom herbal formulas can help get you back on your feet quickly. Acupuncture and herbs are a safe, natural and effective way to support the immune system and re-balance the body.
