We address the root cause.

Our process includes finding and resolving the actual root CAUSE of your migraines. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Even those with a long family history of migraines or migraines that only responded to the most powerful medications and procedures have experienced significant, even permanent relief.

We awaken your body's natural healing system.

Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to heal your migraines. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own anti-inflammatory substances and painkillers, and is fully capable of self-regulating its hormonal pathways. Our therapies help it do those things more powerfully and consistently.

We use an all natural approach your healthcare provider may not know about.

You may have been told by healthcare professionals that you have to live with your migraines or “this is as good as it gets”. That doesn’t mean there’s no treatment, it just means your healthcare team has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to our natural approach.

We keep it simple.

Healing your migraines does not have to be difficult. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear, concise, PROVEN way to help your body resolve the migraines ON IT’S OWN.

Here’s How It Works

Essential-Acupuncture-Chicago-jewel

1. Root Cause Assessment

First we assess your situation to determine the root cause of your migraine. Often the actual problem is NOT “in your head” as you may have already surmised. There can be hormonal, immune, environmental, even emotional roots to your migraines and we’ll be sure to LISTEN CAREFULLY TO YOU (not just look at lab tests) to figure this out.

2. We Create Very Specific Plan To Get Rid Of Your Migraines FOREVER

Next, we come up with a clear, concise, and focused treatment plan to address root cause along with any other symptoms you might be experiencing (such as poor sleep, low energy, and problems with mental focus and mood). Your treatment plan will include one or more of the following therapies: acupuncture, targeted nutritional supplements, herbs, and relaxation exercises. All of this is very clearly spelled out and is non-overwhelming (no difficult diets or impossible supplement regimens).

4. Simple, Focused Nutritional Support

We make sure you have a nutritional plan that supports the healing of the cells and tissues that have been depleted or damaged and are causing your migraines. NO overwhelming detoxes or elimination diets.

5. Ensure Permanent Results

Our ultimate goal is PERMANENT migraine resolution – and we’ve helped many achieve this already. And, NO, they don’t need “forever” maintenance. They’re actually “cured”. Once we’ve reached this point with you, we’ll gradually reduce the frequency of the treatments until you no longer need them at all. 

3. Once-Weekly Acupuncture To Get Fast Control Of The Pain

We’ll do weekly acupuncture sessions targeted towards relieving pain quickly so you get relief as your body strengthens and begins to exit the “migraine loop”.

Common Questions

Essential-Acupuncture-Chicago-jewel
  • Does it hurt?

    You will not experience pain with acupuncture. You may experience warmth, heaviness, tingling, or other sensations in and around the needle site.

  • Will I have to keep coming forever?

    The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way.

  • Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?

    Our patients are typically able to get great results with once-weekly visits, and the visits are typically less than 60 minutes. That’s less than an hour a week. We’ll discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.

  • 
Is natural medicine REALLY powerful enough to cure my migraines or headaches?

    Absolutely. Natural medicine actually helps your body make more of its own medicine, which is more powerful and potent than any man-made medicine.

  • How long does it take to see results?

    People often feel a shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.

  • 
What are my chances of success?

    Results vary, of course. That being said, over 60% of our patients report improvement in frequency and severity of their migraines and many are able to reduce their medication use. However, your situation is unique and at your free initial consultation we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
