RealSimple.com: The Best Headache Remedies

6 of 7

Acupuncture

Best for: Chronic tension headaches.

How it works: Tiny needles are inserted into specific points of the body; this can reduce muscle tension and encourages the release of painkilling endorphins, says Jill Blakeway, a licensed acupuncturist in new york city. Research suggests that, for some people, acupuncture may reduce tension-headache frequency by 50 percent or more.

Keep in mind: Studies show that you may need 10 treatments before you start experiencing relief.
