Head pains

I have suffered from headaches for as long as I can remember. It's genetic: my mom has them, my grandmother had them, it's just who we are apparently. Any time my head starts to hurt, I know I can call my mom and she'll say the same thing. Tension, sinuses, you name it, we get it. And they do, from time to time, turn into full blown migraines. This week was pretty bad for both of us, and other people we know. I was talking to a friend the other day about how bad it was (day after migraine means I am a total zombie) and she said she started going to acupuncture for her headaches and she was amazed at the difference. She was also a skeptic at this "new age" stuff, so she went into it not expecting anything. Now insurance covers a lot of it and low and behold, mine covers the place where she went, so my new venture will be going there for the first time hopefully in the next couple of weeks. I have wanted to try acupuncture and hey, if it can reduce my once a week headaches to once every other week or something, I'll consider it a win. I will be posting about it when I go.

let me know how it goes! a bunch of derby girls go to the acupuncturist and say it works. I'm inclined to believe them, particularly after Poison Apple said she goes from time to time and always feels better afterwards.

Make sure your acupuncturist is on the 1st floor.
