The Health site of the BBC published this personal article on Migraines and Acupuncture in 1996, by Jane Elliot. I think it is worth the read. It summarizes many of my clients experience in how acupuncture can help those who suffer from Migraines.
Jane Elliot, a BBC health reporter, writes about her experience. What I like about this article is that it is her experience of having migraines from a very early age, through her use of various pharmaceutical drugs, to her experience of acupuncture. What I particularly like is her concluding comments. She does not go by what the science says, but by her own experience. This is what matters to her; the very real benefits she has felt. She says:
To be honest I don’t care whether it is real, or as some say an effect ‘in my mind’. I can’t explain why it worked for me. All I can say is that it has worked for me and I intend to keep going.
I hope that you find your experience as positive.
