Online PR News – 28-March-2012 – San Diego, California – Spring is Migraine Season; Headache Sufferers Turn to Acupuncture for Relief. Not everyone looks forward to the promise of spring and that includes the 36 million Americans who suffer from migraine headaches each year. According to a poll by Headache and Migraine News, spring is the worst season for migraines and Healing Arts Health Center in San Diego is helping those seasonal sufferers with a Migraine Free Spring Special: a painless acupuncture treatment that reduces most headaches within minutes, and a free, relaxing 50-minute massage. The special runs through May 31, 2012.
“Education about migraines is as important as the treatment,” said Shaheed K. Abdullah, L.Ac, QME, DNBAO, a San Diego Acupuncturist at Healing Arts Health Center and a guest speaker at a monthly headache class offered by the neurology department at Kaiser Permanente. “Members of the class are not only taught how and why acupuncture works but the importance of an effective treatment plan that consists of 2 treatments per week for 2 weeks followed by 2-3 treatments per month for 2 months for long lasting results.”
He added, “You know the saying, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and there is no time like the present to give acupuncture a try to prevent migraines this spring.”
“Acupuncture should be an option for the first-line treatment of migraine to supplement other non-drug treatment options,” said Dr. Albrecht Molsberger, MD, a medical acupuncture specialist, in an editorial on a new study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. Researchers have also found that compared to prescription medication, acupuncture offers substantial benefits in preventing migraines and may also elicit a neurotransmitter called adenosine that can numb nerve cells and bring natural pain relief.
