Affected by migraine since childhood. I recently found that I could control the pain I was experiencing by using acupuncture. Sometimes if you go to visit somewhere they have a map of attractions. You press a button on the display case and a light appears next to the attractions to show where they are. Bizarrely acupuncture is a bit like this. First you use a sharp point to press on where you can feel the pain. You will have to systematically press on a number of positions close to this point to release the pain where it is most intense. Once you’ve located a spot that takes your breath away you will start to feel pain showing itself in more distant locations. You then reposition to these locations. And systematically press on points around the new found area. This is because although you may feel pain in the back of your head for example. The source of the pain may be in the back of the legs or even in the hands.
This is how bizarrely it is like the attractions map. But instead of an ice cream stall you get a blissful release from pain. Be patient you may have to press on many points before you get there! Sadly I have to say it works for some of us and for some it doesn’t. For me it is useful for release from muscular pain and over stimulated nerves.
