Acupuncture may help to relieve headaches by:
- Increasing endorphins and neuropeptide Y levels, which can help to combat negative affective states.
- Stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues, which leads to a release of endorphins and changes the processing of pain in the brain and spinal cord.
- Reducing inflammation, by promoting release of vascular and immune-modulatory factors;
- Increasing local microcirculation, which aids dispersal of swelling.

Dr Ding has helped significantly with my Neuralgia. I was taking 3 tablets a day to manage the pain, after 7 appointments I am pain free and have not taken a single tablet in over 2 weeks. Amazing! After the first couple of appointments I already felt my pain easing and had started to reduce my dosage. I am so very pleased and indebted to Dr Ding from the bottom of my heart. She is such a very lovely person which is an absolute added bonus! My thanks and grateful appreciation.
