Migraine & Tension Headaches


Migraine sufferers may experience episodes of one-sided headache of moderate or severe intensity, sensitivity to light or noise, disrupted vision with auras or patterns, nausea or vomiting.

People who suffer with migraine headaches often seek alternative treatments and have found acupuncture to be helpful in managing this debilitating condition. Studies have shown that acupuncture is effective in treating migraine. See British Acupuncture Council website

Tension headaches are usually due to clenched muscles in the jaw, head, neck or shoulders and may be described as a tight band around the head. Stress and worry are often major factors in causing tension

Nicola Fielding offers acupuncture as well as other treatments to help manage migraine, stress and tension headaches:


Acupuncture
Is a very useful treatment for migraine and has considerably fewer side-effects than conventional treatment approaches. Acupuncture is also useful in helping people to manage stress, rebalance the body and calm the nervous system

Massage
Helps to relieve stress as well as muscle tension in the face/jaw, head, neck and shoulder region which exacerbates headaches. Suction cupping may also be used over the upper back and shoulder area to help release muscle tension.

Food Intolerance Testing
Certain foods could be contributing to migraine attacks, for example red wine, chocolate, cheese and citrus fruits are known to be triggers for migraine. Other foods may also be contributing to attacks. Food Intolerance testing helps to identify foods that the body struggles to process and may trigger headaches
