According to Chinese Medicine, migraines and headaches can be caused by these internal and external factors:

* Exogenous pathogenic factors such as wind, including wind-cold, wind-heat, and wind-dampness;
* Mental or emotional upsets such as stress, anxiety, depression, and anger that may lead to qi-depression and transformation into fire;
* Improper diets with too much greasy foods, that may cause phlegm;
* Prolonged diseases, weakness of the spleen and stomach, as well as the deficiency of the blood;
* Traumatic injury caused blood-stasis.

Strategies for prevention in Chinese Medicine include:

* Avoid exogenous pathogenic factors such as wind and dampness;
* Improve mental or emotional health, such as through practicing meditation and Qigong;
* Have a regular diet with less fat intake;
* Regular exercise to improve the flow of qi and the blood;
* Acupressure at acupuncture points Taiyang (EX-HN 5) and Fengchi (GB 20).
