Headache Relief without Medication

Did you know acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Remedies can be very effective in relieving headaches? Many Americans suffer from chronic headaches that can benefit from the wisdom of Chinese Medicine. Just as there are different types and causes for headaches in western medicine, there are various differentiations for headaches in Chinese Medicine. Some causes and related conditions include:

2.Stress and Tension
3.Menstruation related
4.Fatigue and or not enough sleep
5.Common Cold
6.High Blood Pressure

In order for a practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese medicine to best help you it may be helpful for you to reflect on the following questions and come prepared to answer them.
1.Which part of the head is the pain located in?
2.What time of day or circumstances does it arrive?
3.What seems to be helpful to alleviate it? What have you tried that doesn't work?
4.What is the quality of the pain? Does it feel dull, sharp, throbbing, fixed, moving, numb, empty?

All of this will be useful information to share with your practitioner.If you or someone you know in Sonoma County, Ca suffers from headaches, call Kat Delse, L.Ac. at (707) 775-8311 or visit to find out how you can find relief today.
