In conjunction with Acupuncture, Acupressure is a drug-free, self-treatment to reduce migraine symptoms. Most people who actively use acupressure points, for pain, stress, or specifically migraine or headache relief, often incorporate acupressure as part of a holistic, healthier long-term plan for their life.
The practice of acupuncture in combination with at home acupressure will naturally promote blood circulation and can help relieve physical tension for common issues people face regularly. Try this effective 4 point, acupressure routine in between acupuncture treatments in the comfort of your own home for instant comfort and potential relief.

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.
