Severe headaches which are an everyday event, or a weekly/fortnightly
event over many years are treatable.
The effectiveness of the treatment will be severely hindered by:
* strenuous physical activity such as gym work, boxing and weight lifting,
* excessive alcohol consumption,
* various drugs or the withdrawal from drugs especially some pain-killers.
Headaches & migraines: combined acupuncture and remedial massage.
Hormonal headaches, one or more treatments of Acupuncture works best.
Research has proven that for chronic headaches and migraines 12 treatments is the most effective number of treatments.
