Acupuncture for Migraine Prevention.

Acupuncture is as effective as conventional drug preventative therapy for migraine and is safe, long lasting, and cost-effective. This intervention may prompt lifestyle changes that could be valuable in patients’ recovery.

What is involved in an Acupuncture session?

In an initial consultation, there is a lot of discussions so that you as an individual can be assessed, questions are always encouraged. Tiny acupuncture needles (thinner than a hair follicle) are inserted into specific acupuncture points and then you are encouraged to rest. Many patients fall asleep or into a deep state of relaxation. A follow up session involves a quick assessment and discussion prior to the treatment and then you are left to relax and rest.

What other modalities may be included in my session?

Your session may include, depending on the diagnosis bowen therapy, cupping, gua sha or moxibustion (click on these titles on the top of the web page to learn more).

Can I claim insurance for an Acupuncture session?

Yes, most major health fund rebates are claimable on the spot after your treatment.

Is there anything I should do before or after my acupuncture session?

Ensuring that you don’t come to the appointment with an empty stomach is great. And refraining from coffee and alcohol after the treatment is also advised. Drinking lots of water is a recommendation after any session.
