About The Presentation

Migraine is one of the conditions recommended by medical authorities to receive acupuncture treatment in the current practice. The pathology of migraine has been continuously advancing by adding new knowledge of the condition. According to the new understanding, new therapies are proposed and introduced in clinical practice. Those new treatments have changed the landscape of western medicine practice in pain control, but not made big impact on reducing the overall numbers of patients and improving their quality of life. TCM, particularly acupuncture, has demonstrated great effect in managing the condition and relieving the pain. And more specific acupuncture approaches have been clinical proven, different from those for headache in general. This session would provide a chance to update existing knowledge, and help to refine the clinical approaches in management of migraine with TCM acupuncture.
