Introduction - Migraines are one of the most common types of headaches that occur periodically. There are two type of migraine: classical (with aura) and common migraines (without aura). Migraine occurs in women two to three times more often than in men.
Material and methods - In the research are included 30 patients, 12 male and 18 female, on age from 29 to 79, treated for migraine in a period of one year. All patients had acupuncture treatment in a clinic for Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture in Skopje, Macedonia, by a doctor specialist in acupuncture. Acupuncture points that were treated are: Baihui-DU20, Sishencong-EX-HN1, Yangbai-GB14, Yintang-EX-HN3, Taiyang-EX-HN5, Hegu-LI4, Zhongwan-RN12, Zusanli-ST36, Sanyinjiao-SP6, Taichong-LR3, Fengchi-GB20, Dazhui-DU14, Pishu-BL20, Weishu-BL21, Ganshu-BL18.
Results - After the acupuncture treatment the effect was achieved in all patients with certain number of treatments and all the symptoms that they complained about before were gone afterwards. There were more female than male patients, with average age of 49. In most of the patients effect was achieved with 5 to 10 treatments.
Discussion - Acupuncture treatment as part of the 5000 year old TCM can successfully relieve the migraine symptoms, decrease the pain, reduce inflammation and improve the blood and Qi circulation through the body and meridians.
Conclusion - Acupuncture as a treatment for migraine gives positive results and can successfully improve the health and well-being of the patients.
