Reduce the intensity and frequency of migraine episodes with acupuncture

Approximately 12% of Canadians live migraine episodes at migrainedifferent levels.  26% of women suffer from that condition. A serie of acupuncture treatments can help reduce  frequencies and intensities of the episodes. 

Though because headaches can hide other problems, it is best to first consult a doctor to get an accurate picture of the condition.
