If you are looking for a non-medicinal, opioid-free approach to headache treatment, HealthWorks Acupuncture Regina offers acupuncture for headaches and migraines which can be beneficial for relieving pain. Massage therapy may also help.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “imbalances in brain chemicals – including serotonin, which helps regulate pain in your nervous system – also may be involved. Serotonin and other related chemical levels drop during migraine attacks. This may cause your trigeminal nerve to release substances called neuropeptides, which travel to your brain’s outer covering (meninges). The result is migraine pain.” Acupuncture treatments have been shown in many studies to affect the levels of neurotransmitters, neuropeptides and endorphins, including serotonin, which may be why acupuncture for headaches tends to also provide significant improvement to patients with migraines.
