The Headache Healer’s Handbook #BookReview on Notebooks and Glasses (click for full review), August 26, 2018.
“The Headache Healer’s Handbook: A Holistic, Hands-On Somatic Self-Care Program for Headache and Migraine Relief and Prevention is the bible for anyone who suffers with headaches and migraines. It has over 380 pages of everything you need to know to understand headaches and migraines and how to help manage them. Although I don’t regularly suffer from headaches (I mainly get them as a result of my neck pain), I decided to read and review this book as I thought it would be useful to my readers.”
(The link in the review itself goes to my Amazon UK book page, with its own fab first review, that ends with . . .
Bottom line: since using this approach I have had many fewer migraines (having suffered regularly, sometimes for several days at a time), and can clear them in less than an hour (sometimes a few minutes) when they arise. This is essential reading for anyone whose life is regularly disrupted by tension headaches or migraines.)
“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.”
