Abstract

Complementary therapies are important strategies, particularly for the treatment of acute and chronic pain, including headache. If the principles of non-conventional therapies were combined with the efficacy of a carefully evaluated and flexible pharmacological regimen, as well as with the use of other conventional techniques, many headaches, especially tension-type headache and some forms of migraine, could be successfully treated through recourse to complementary therapies. Unfortunately, however, these therapies continue to be marginalised within the healthcare systems of many countries, even though the demand for integrated approaches is growing and the hostility, on the part of some physicians, to complementary therapies is starting to decline.
