Headaches can have multiple causes: such as headaches due to flu, a cold, (muscle) tension or primary headaches due to migraine.
The cause of the headache often remains unknown.
Acupuncture focuses on finding the cause of imbalance. In some cases, an excess build up of energy in the head causes headaches, whereas in other cases the cause is a blockage of energy flow to the head.
Acupuncture can help regulate the flow of energy in the body and thus relieve the pain.
