Hormones may be small, but they are mighty. These tiny messengers play significant roles in how our bodies function. They manage how you use energy, how much weight you put on, how happy you are, how well you sleep, and your ability to create healthy children. Unfortunately, hormones are also tricky. They are released by your endocrine system in precise amounts that can easily be thrown off balance.
FAQ: Wellnest Denver Acupuncture for Migraine & Headaches
What types of headaches can acupuncture help with?
Almost any pain condition is treatable with acupuncture – and that includes headaches, migraines, and the issues that can cause them. We’ve been successful in reducing and preventing these types of headaches and related conditions:
- Tension Headaches

Does acupuncture relieve other migraine symptoms?
Some people experience symptoms like aura, light sensitivity, or nausea during their migraines. We’ll talk in-depth about how your migraines present to create a treatment plan that relieves your pain as well as other accompanying symptoms.
How many acupuncture treatments will I need to get pain relief?
To get the best results for lasting headache relief, we recommend a series of 10 acupuncture visits. But, most people feel some level of relief after their first visit. If you come for acupuncture during an active headache, it’s likely that your pain will reduce significantly during the visit. As will all conditions, however, it takes time and consistency to achieve lasting results and prevent migraines from recurring.
During your visit, we’ll discuss the factors that may contribute to your healing time and devise a plan to get you living headache-free as soon as possible. This could be a handful of sessions or a few months of regular maintenance care. In general, chronic headaches that have been around for months or years will take longer to heal than more recent headache conditions.
What should I expect at my first acupuncture visit?
At Wellnest Denver, we aim for all our treatments to be gentle, effective, and enjoyable. Whether it’s your first acupuncture visit or your fiftieth, we’ll walk you through every step of the way and make sure you are comfortable from start to finish!
During your first visit, we start by discussing your headache type, triggers, and other symptoms. We’ll also discuss your health history, lifestyle, diet, and other medical details. Then, we’ll dive into your acupuncture treatment. You’ll get comfortable on our treatment bed and receive a tailored acupuncture session to target the root of your headaches.
Afterward, you’ll leave feeling rested and have actionable steps to take to help prevent headaches between visits. Click here to schedule your first visit!
Are there any side effects of acupuncture for headache relief?
Acupuncture is 100% safe and natural. Research shows that “acupuncture is at least as effective as prophylactic drug therapy for migraine and it is safe, long-lasting, and cost-effective.”
It’s normal to feel a slight pinch or tingle during your treatment, but those sensations subside after a few seconds and you will start to feel relaxed.
In addition to noticing fewer and less intense headaches, you may also experience better sleep, improved digestion, a stronger immune system, and a general sense of wellbeing.
