“A New Book on Headaches that is Worth Reading,” NY Headache Blog, reviewed by Alexander Mauskop, MD, Founder/Director of New York Headache Center, June 25, 2018.
“Jan Mundo, who is a Somatic and Headache Coach, and Bodyworker just wrote a book, The Headache Healer’s Handbook, which was published by the New World Library. I’ve known Jan and her wonderful work with headache patients for many years and was happy to write a foreword to her very readable and useful book.”
In “Fine Print: New and Notable Books for Body, Mind, and Spirit,” Retailing Insight Magazine: Connecting the Best in Body-Mind-Spirit, reviewed by Anna Jedrziewski. INATS/Book Expo Issue, May/June 2018.
“This book is first and foremost a testament to the mind/body connection and how an awareness of that connection can literally change your life. It begins by dealing with the physical. It contains an analysis of headache triggers, cutting-edge diet suggestions, and a detailed section on keeping a Headache Diary. Moving toward the world of mindfulness, it next offers a whole chapter on breathing. Finally, the book arrives at mindfulness/meditation practice. This down-to-earth, comprehensive discussion is followed by sections on touch healing and connecting with core issues like trauma and embodied wisdom. Let your customers know that if they only get as far as the mindfulness chapter, they will have gotten their money’s worth. The rest of the book is icing on the cake, and very special icing it is.”
“You’ll be walked through finding out your headache type and develop your headache profile and then learn what triggers might be operational for you. You’ll learn to track your triggers and use holistic methods including breath, posture, ergonomics and sleep to help yourself. You’ll learn about diet as well as how to use the healing powers of your hands to heal your headaches.
This is a comprehensive book full of ideas and practices that can help to reduce or eliminate the frequency and intensity of headaches.”
“As a migraine sufferer, I can say this book is complete. Author Jan Mundo covers the vast array of things that may trigger headaches and offers insight and suggestions as to how to recognize these and handle the things that set off your journey into pain.”
