Headache Research

Large study shows acupuncture effective for chronic headache

A German study of over 15,000 patients with chronic migraine or tension headaches showed that acupuncture significantly reduces the frequency of headaches and increases quality of life. The patients in the study received 15 treatments over 3 months. Migraine patients and tension headache patients showed the same improvement. (11th Annual Symposium on Complementary Health Care 2004)
