One of my patients last week came in for her IVF support and she told me that she almost cancelled because she had a migraine headache. She didn’t know if she could handle the drive to and from my office. I told her that I was happy that she did not cancel the treatment because her cycle is underway and that I would get rid of the headache for her with some trigger point acupuncture.
She was amazed that she came in with a migraine and left without one. Her biggest question is why don’t doctors tell migraine suffers about acupuncture because the medications are so strong. I don’t really know why it has not caught on more with the Western medical professionals.
I hope that over time doctors and the public become more educated and open to acupuncture because it is really good at treating many things!
