Acupuncture for Headaches

A report today by NICE, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence suggests that people in the UK could be having completely preventable severe headaches by taking too many painkillers. The guidance for the ‘Diagnosis and management of headaches in young people and adults‘ suggest that acupuncture could well be an alternative to simply taking more pain killers. The guidance suggests a course of up to 10 sessions of acupuncture over a period of 5-8 weeks for the prophylactic treatment of chronic tension-type headaches.

Acupuncture has consistently been proven to be an effective solution for people suffering from long term chronic headaches and is a suitable alternative treatment recommended by NICE, which is part of the NHS.
