Moxibustion during pregnancy

Various types of headache comprise a widespread health problem. Among the possible treatment options, acupuncture is one of the most effective, with the least number of adverse effects
Acupuncture treatment for headache prevention focuses on stress reduction. When acupuncture needles are inserted into the acupuncture points, the body responds by releasing endorphins and other neurotransmitters that activate the parasympathetic nervous system (the rest and digest branch of our autonomic nervous system) which relaxes muscles, smooths blood flow and accelerates healing.
