Abstract: 118 patients were treated for migraine headaches at the Ludwig-Boltzmann-Acupuncture-Institute in Vienna from 1976-1978. 68 patients came to follow up. The results were excellent or good in 61,8%; acupuncture had a positive effect in a total of 76,5%, and failed in 23,5%.Being a side-effect-free method of treating migraine headaches producing excellent results, acupuncture should be administered prior to the use of aggressive drug therapy.Optimum results may, however, only be expected of optimally trained physicians. That thorough training in acupuncture is imperative is demonstrated herein by the variety of criteria for selection of an optimum, and yet, at the same time, minimum acupuncture program.
