A Guide to Headache Remedies
Best for: Chronic tension headaches.
How it works: Tiny needles are inserted into specific points of the body; this can reduce muscle tension and encourages the release of painkilling endorphins, says Jill Blakeway, a licensed acupuncturist in New York City. Research suggests that, for some people, acupuncture may reduce tension-headache frequency by 50 percent or more.
Keep in mind: Studies show that you may need 10 treatments before you start experiencing relief.
