Shoreline Acupuncture treats many types of headaches, including:


Migraines are severe, throbbing headaches often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. They can last for hours or even days and are typically one-sided.

Tension headaches

These headaches cause a dull, aching pain that feels like a tight band around the head. They usually develop from muscle tension or stress and are one of the most common types of headaches.

Sinus headaches

Sinus headaches cause inflammation and congestion in the facial cavities, leading to pain and pressure in the forehead, cheekbones, and nose areas. 

Cluster headaches

These headaches can be excruciating. They typically occur in clusters or groups and strike one side of the head.

Hypertension headaches 

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, can lead to a throbbing pain at the back of the head.
