How does acupuncture treat migraine headache?
Most of the patients had migraine headache for years which could be triggered by the temperature, stress or tiredness. The CT or MRI were all normal, so patients used painkillers when they got attacked.
In TCM theory, the GB meridian origins the outer of eyes and passes by the side of head and neck. So whenever the GB meridian dysfunctions, people feel pain on either one side or both sides of the head.
The acupuncturists use the distal points like LI 4, GB 42, Liv 3 to produce meridian Qi flow downward, and use the local points like GB 1, ST8 to clear the stagnation.
Patient will feel relief right after the treatment and 2-3 more following treatments are needed for prevention.
