Headaches

Chinese Medicine can offer a very clear diagnosis and treatment strategy for headache and migraine sufferers. If headaches are interfering with your life, it’s time to talk to one of our practitioners.

Not all headaches are the same; it makes sense that the exact treatment for each patient needs to differ, too. In our clinical experience, we have found headache sufferers respond to a combined treatment approach, using acupuncture and herbal medicines.

Vertigo & dizziness

Vertigo or dizzy spells may be brought on by a variety of physical conditions and influenced by your environment. High or low blood pressure, inner-ear problems, conditions such as Meniere’s disease, anxiety and stress can all bring on dizziness and even fainting.

Acupuncture can be used to treat the underlying causes of vertigo (dizziness). Acupuncture stimulates healing and neurological health. In many cases, we find that carefully prescribed herbal medicine can be effective, too.

Bell's Palsy

Bell’s Palsy is a nerve condition that causes one sided facial weakness and paralysis. The condition can be triggered by cold temperatures, stress, high blood pressure or the viruses that cause shingles and cold sores.

Bell’s Palsy responds best to frequent initial acupuncture treatments that begin soon after the first onset of the condition. 

Immune support

A weakened immune system means your body is unable to fight the effects of bacteria, pollution and viruses in the environment around you, leading to poorer health.

A combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and lifestyle changes can boost your immune sytem and help to protect you from illness and infection.

Fatigue

Fatigue is often described as a lack of energy and motivation that can be experienced both physically and mentally. The condition usually develops gradually and sufferers may not notice the issue until they begin comparing their current energy levels to past levels. 

People with fatigue may experience a lack of motivation, tire easily during activities, and have difficulty concentrating, which makes simple tasks exhausting.

The approach to treatment will be different for each patient depending on the underlying causes, but common therapies that we incorporate are acupuncture, Chinese nutrition therapy, herbal medicine, and lifestyle and exercise advice. 

Colds and Flus

The common cold and seasonal flus are bothersome to most people throughout the year. Colds typically bring on high fevers and affect the head, chest and throat, while flus can cause body aches, digestive upset, chills or fever.

At Poke Acupuncture we select acupuncture points and quality Chinese Medicine antivirals and cold relieving herbs as the natural therapies of choice for colds and flus.
