Thirty-nine million people in the U.S. and one billion people worldwide suffer from migraines, and those that suffer from them regularly know how debilitating they can be.
Migraines impact an estimated 1 in 7 people across the US, and women are more than twice as likely to be affected than men.
Migraines are undiagnosed and untreated in at least 50% of patients and less than 50% of migraine sufferers seek medical help.
The headaches can be so severe that the World Health Organization classifies chronic migraines as more disabling than blindness, paraplegia, angina, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Still, migraines remain the least publicly funded of all neurological illnesses when adjusted for economic impact.
Many people immediately turn to popping-pills for their migraine symptoms, but should be considering holistic ways first. Multiple Modern Acupuncture patients have confirmed less severity of symptoms as a result of their acupuncture treatments.
“I went in with pain from fibromyalgia and chronic migraines and left feeling better than I have in years. I was lucky enough to get immediate relief and my boyfriend got relief from his back and neck pain as well.” – Mackenzie H (TN)
"Amazing results! I’ve dealt with migraines for decades and had found some relief with acupuncture in the past. I hadn’t been on a consistent treatment plan until I signed up with Modern Acupuncture. I am 3 months into a 5 month plan and have noticed a dramatic reduction in my migraines. Particularly the debilitating ones." - Nancy G (CA)
Many pain conditions are commonly treated with Acupuncture as the practice increases blood flow and stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
These effects of Acupuncture make it an effective method for treating the pain, tension, and symptoms of migraines.
Many studies have concluded that Acupuncture is safe, well-tolerated and people receiving Acupuncture reported fewer side effects than those receiving drugs.
Meta-analysis studies on Acupuncture show that three months after starting acupuncture treatment, frequent headache or migraine sufferers experienced significantly fewer headache days than those receiving routine care or treatment with preventative drugs.
The Journal of the American Medical Association recently published a study showing that Acupuncture helped reduce the frequency of migraines in participants who were chronic sufferers.
The American Migraine Association, consisting of headache specialists, and medical advisors with deep knowledge and training in headache medicine, agrees that a course of Acupuncture of at least six treatment sessions can be a valuable treatment option for migraine sufferers.

You may feel a little sensation or tingle at the point, but most patients don’t feel anything at all and often fall asleep during their treatment because of how comfortable they are. Keep in mind that the acupuncture needles are extremely tiny, often smaller than a strand of human hair. Your acupuncturist will make sure that you are comfortable and adjust any point during your acupuncture session that causes discomfort.
Modern Acupuncture® is a natural pain relief solution and the leading provider of acupuncture in the U.S. The most studied theories show that acupuncture stimulates the body to release naturally produced “feel good” endorphins and stimulate the parasympathetic or “rest and digest” response in our body.
