Acupuncture is very effective at treating many different types of headaches including chronic migraines, tension headaches, and sinus headaches.  Acupuncture works to reduce pain and inflammation stimulates the release of natural pain relievers in the body, such as opioids, as well as regulating pain relieving opioid receptors, and acupuncture has an anti-inflammatory effect.  Chinese medicine explains that acupuncture works by resetting the imbalances that are in your body. Once the imbalance is corrected, the body can work to heal itself.
