Migraines have been part of my life since I was right around 18. Chalk it up to hormones, stress, the weather, my medical conditions, whatever you want, but I can be sure that at least once a year and sometimes every few months, I will be knocked off my feet by a migraine. Denial is always the beginning for me – it must just be a regular headache – so sometimes, I exacerbate the migraine by trying to wish it away.
I have tried essential oils, energy work, multiple different pharmaceuticals, chiropractic and nothing works – they still come back.
After my most recent migraine which debilitated me for over a week, I determined that I need to be more aggressive with my preventative steps. A few days after that determination, I met Dr. Linda Giorgio, Licensed Acupuncture Physician and Doctor of Oriental Medicine. She gave me her card and since we were at a party, we chatted briefly about her practice, Acupuncture Advantage which is Community Acupuncture (I am SO intrigued) and we made plans to connect online. Acupuncture Advantage is located right here in Boca Raton, Florida.
After meeting Dr. Linda, I went to the Acupuncture Advantage Facebook Page and saw this video on their Facebook Page – Acupuncture and Migraines:
I love synchronicity. I asked and the Universe answered.
Here is my new experiment – I plan on going this week to meet with Dr. Linda to experience the Community Acupuncture model that they practice AND to talk to her about my migraines. I will report back on everything, especially since there are other practices throughout the United States utilizing Community Acupuncture and I KNOW there are plenty of other people suffering from migraines.
Since the Universe seems to have placed Dr. Linda in my path – I am willing to surrender and try it. I just won’t think about the needles. OM!
