A study, published in the journal Headache, confirmed once more that acupuncture is really effective in relieving chronic headaches.
A course of 10 acupuncture treatments over a period of six weeks had made a difference in quality of life of adult headache sufferers participating in the study.
People who received acupuncture (and standard treatment) were 3.7 times more likely to report less suffering from headaches compared with those who received standard treatment alone .
