In addition, massage was found to be helpful (although cost can sometimes be prohibitive.) This, again, is a prevention measure, so you have to plan on basically doing this anywhere from once a week to once every two weeks depending on where your pain is. If there's a lot of neck pain associated with the migraines, then that has to be a planned prevention method that you're doing on a continuous basis. Same thing with acupuncture. Acupuncture was found to be effective, but it's a prevention method. So it has to be done usually in the very beginning, almost as a titration, done about once every week for about two or three months and then decreased to once every two weeks or maybe once every three weeks. But it is a planned prevention medicine that has to be almost continued constantly.
