Headaches and Migraines

Headaches? Migraines? If you’ve been getting regular headaches that you can’t explain, it’s time to figure out the cause.

Headaches are generally experienced as a tight pressure or tension in any part of the head. They may be due to a variety of factors, including:

  • Stress
  • Muscular tension
  • Hydration
  • Sleep issues
  • Dental or jaw problems
  • Eye problems
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Medications
  • Infections
  • Dietary or lifestyle factors


Migraines are a more severe and complex disorder that may be an inherited condition. They are often accompanied by other symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light or sound.


Often, both headaches and migraines are triggered by factors that can be eliminated or modified. We would recommend a consultation with one of our acupuncturists, Peter or Veronika. They will perform a full health assessment to help decipher potential causes and triggers, while also giving you a personalised treatment plan to reduce the severity and incidence of symptoms.


A treatment with our wonderful massage therapist, Eiko, may also be beneficial if your headaches or migraines are related to muscular tension or structural issues. By addressing the predisposing factors, many of our clients are surprised how easily pain relief can be achieved.


If you suffer from headaches and migraines, there are many ways to help – therapeutic massage, acupuncture and herbal medicine – and combining these solutions can help even more.
