Migraine Relief Program
Migraine Relief Program
Migraines are a type of headache that have real and definite changes to the brain. Previously, migraines were thought of as a disorder of the blood vessels in the head as the primary source of pain. We now know that migraines involve nerve pathways and brain chemicals! Since migraines are a neurological condition, they can come in waves and flare ups.
The role of acupuncture in migraine treatment:
Here at The Pines, Dr. Kourtney Zamora, DAc., L.Ac. designed a program that can treat migraines by stimulating specific points on the body a wave of natural painkillers released from the brain. Our program also uses trigger point therapy to relax the muscles in the neck and shoulders.
"I pursued acupuncture after many different treatments for occipital neuralgia failed. I was having chronic headaches that would last for 4-5 days at a time and was truly miserable. It was interfering with work and daily life. I started out with an acupuncture session twice a week and after the first week I had tremendous improvement.I was only having a minor headache maybe once a week.
I have continued Kourtney’s treatment plan and I haven’t had a headache in almost 10 days (which is a miracle for me!). I would highly recommend anyone to see Kourtney! She is kind, gentle, and best of all, she improved my quality of life. If you haven’t tried acupuncture yet go see Kourtney!!"
"I started going to Pines Acupuncture to treat my migraine headaches. While there Kourtney discovered I had lower back pain. She did amazing things and helped my back pain tremendously. She does amazing work, is a very caring, loving person who wants to help people with their pains."
"Working with Kourtney has been an absolute joy. I’ve been seeing her for almost a year and have had a significant improvement in my sleep, anxiety, headaches, skin health and pain. She has an excellent bedside manner, calming presence, and gentle needle technique."
"The Pines Acupuncture has been a great avenue for me for migraine relief.... .Despite the fact I am poked with needles, acupuncture is very relaxing for me. I look forward to it. Kourtney is awesome. So gentle and nurturing... The Pines Acupuncture is a small, intimate practice. Kourtney is very timely and efficient."
