North York, Canada, 13-FEB-2013 - Bayview Village Wellness Centre, North York acupuncture facility is pleased to announce that alternative therapy techniques such as chiropractic medicine and acupuncture are proving effective in providing relief from the pain of tension headaches. When locals have experienced headaches in the past, the typical response was to take an over-the-counter pain reliever and wait for it to take effect. Now, a North York acupuncture therapist can provide relief without the need for drugs.

OTC pain relievers only mask the symptoms, and they do not work indefinitely. For those who resort to prescription painkillers to relieve the frequent episodes, there may be damages to the liver due to the drugs themselves. Drugs often lose effectiveness over time, and they may be habit-forming.

Tension headaches are also known as stress headaches. They are the most common type of the many classified headache categories. Most people experience this type of headache at times during a lifetime. An episodic tension headache typically is mild to moderate in level. The pain is described as constant and feels like a band of pain, pressure, or tightness on the back of the head or across the forehead.

Some sufferers tension headache are considered chronic. They occur more often than 15 days per month. These headaches of either episodic or chronic nature can last for half an hour or up to several days at a time.
