NICE say acupuncture is the only proven method to prevent migraines and tension-type headaches.

Information released this week by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) reported that the overuse of pain relief medication such as aspirin is one of the most common causes of headaches.

Around 1 in 50 people are thought to be affected by headaches and migraines, with women 5 times more likely to suffer than men.

NICE conclude that acupuncture is the only proven method to prevent tension-type headaches & migraines and that it should be prescribed by doctors.
