Clinical Research & Studies

Migraines and Headaches

Below is a list of high quality clinical trials using acupuncture for a variety of health conditions.

The summary provides a quick look at their findings, with links to the studies. 

A German study of 794 participants with migraines, found that providing 11 acupuncture treatments within 6 weeks was at least as effective as a prescription drug. 

A 2009 Cochrane review of over 20 high-quality trials involving 4419 participants found that there is "consistent evidence that acupuncture is beneficial in the treatment of acute migraine attacks."

Stress & Anxiety

In 2017, The Acupuncture Evidence Project, co-authored by Dr John McDonald, PhD and Dr Stephen Janz,4 was published.  Their evidence included a 2016 systematic review with over 400 randomised patients that concluded that ‘the effects from acupuncture for treating anxiety have been shown to be significant as compared to conventional treatments.’
