You’ve seen those ads with famous celebrities posing with milk on their lips, telling you to drink your milk because of the many health benefits it can provide.

Well, the same type of ad could be run for acupuncture. Like milk, acupuncture offers many benefits for a healthy body and life.  Like drinking milk, acupuncture offers a painless and often relaxing way to make you feel better.

Ever have a headache?  It can be brought on by a bad day at work, or when you’re running late for an appointment.  Or by a longer than normal commute home with starving kids waiting to be fed or, worse yet, a not getting there in time to pick them up from soccer practice headache. You know this experience,  pain in your temples, in your forehead.  Sometimes it throbs.  Sometimes it just shoots a steady stream of discomfort just beneath your scalp.

And then there is the other kind of headache – the kind that goes on for days at a time with assorted other frightening symptoms that can ultimately transport us to the local Urgent Care center for relief.  

Ever try acupuncture?  Think about it.  For centuries it has been used successfully to relieve pain symptoms in all areas of the body.  Recent studies have confirmed what acupuncturists and their patients have known all along: long lasting and sometimes even permanent relief can be achieved with consistent acupuncture treatments. 

Acupuncture works because it treats the whole person, and looks to the root causes of the pain and not just the symptoms. During your initial appointment, your acupuncturist will ask you many specific questions about your symptoms along with many questions about your general well-being.  Some of these questions may appear to have little to do with your headache.  But they help the acupuncturist pinpoint the root cause of your pain.  By getting to the root of the problem, acupuncture can help provide a way for the body to heal itself.

So if you get headaches, and normally self-medicate with aspirin or other analgesic tablets and pills, think about acupuncture. 

It’s as healthy as milk, and it won’t leave a white moustache on your upper lip.
