If you want to reduce stress, gain mind-body health, heal your headaches, and live a vibrant, fulfilling, meaningful life, work through your body! I’ve been doing transformative — body-as-self — work for forty-five years, and it’s powerful.

If you’ve wanted to experience Somatic Coaching or get your migraines under control, this is a great opportunity, and I don’t want you to miss it! With remote sessions, you can have a transformative experience right where you are, in the comfort of your home or office.

Does long-distance headache-healing work? Absolutely! I’ve been helping clients heal their headaches and transform their lives, way before Skype and FaceTime, never meeting them in person. I give the same coaching whether in-person or on a call. It’s all bodywork!

Migraines have been a part of my life since I was five years old. But after a couple of months, things began to change. Not only did the headaches reduce in intensity and frequency, but my sleep patterns were better, stress levels were down, and physically I became much more comfortable in my body.

By the end of the program I had learned how to stop a headache before it escalated, deal with it when I had one, and bounce back faster after it was over. The breathing, relaxation and diet changes, along with applying the Mundo Method when necessary have almost eliminated the migraines altogether. 

I also have the added bonus of approaching my entire life in a different way. This change in my typical reaction to situations has been noted by many people, including relatives, friends and co-workers. And I feel as if I have found a new lease on life.  —Michelle


What would I work on in Somatic Coaching, you ask? If you’re stuck, stressed, want to get moving in any area of your life or resolve an old issue, but can’t seem to make it happen or make your learning stick, Somatic Coaching is amazing! Bring yourself home to your body and use it as an oasis of information. Recharge your being with practices that will sustain you in good and difficult times.

I look forward to working with you! Here’s to love, life, health, and vibrant well-being, Jan

“Jan Mundo is a deeply gifted and skilled Somatic practitioner. I leave my sessions with Jan feeling more open, grounded, loving, and in touch with what I care about. Some people may assume or have experienced the process of healing to be esoteric, abstract, or hokey. Jan makes healing pragmatic and tangible. You will see results.”  —S. Rajkuma

New Dates: Mundo Method for Headache Professional Training

Mundo Method Hands-on Headache Therapy

Four-day Professional Training

with Jan Mundo

March 26-29*, 9 am-5 pm
New York City

*New dates!

Do any of your clients or patients suffer from headaches or migraines? Chances are they do. And how about you? Do you get them too? Desperate for pain relief, headache sufferers often get caught in a cycle of taking too much medication too often, which can cause more frequent and intense headaches, but what else can they do? A massage might help relieve a tension headache but make a migraine worse. Practitioners want to help, but tried-and-true methods may not always work, especially with migraines.

The Mundo Method is a subtle touch and focused concentration protocol that works with the actual felt sensations of a headache or migraine. It’s a dynamic process whereby each change determines the next movie. It’s literally “bio” “feedback” with no machine required! Tension, migraine, and combination headaches have different characteristics and require different approaches. One technique eases held fascia, another “stills” migraine pulsations, and another releases stuck pain to help the migraine “bloom” in order to work with and move it out.

Migraines affect far more than your head. They affect your entire being with a cascading set of symptoms, such as visual, sound, and smell disturbances, disorientation, nausea, and vomiting. But the words can’t describe how horrible people feel. Most chronic sufferers sense their migraines are like entities unto themselves that can feel stuck or even move around like little gophers!

It’s extremely rewarding to lift away the pain and associated symptoms of someone who has been suffering for days, weeks, months, even years. It’s fascinating to palpate and manipulate a variety of headache sensations and manifestations and feel them dissipate and have that correlate to the client’s relief. Practitioners who suffer from headaches or migraines, or have family or friends who do, have an affinity for working with them because they understand first-hand how debilitating they are and want to help.

Registration

Course fee:  $1200. You can pay the full amount now or a $400 deposit to hold your place; balance of $800 due by 3/19. Check and PayPal accepted. No refunds or cancellations after 3/23/15. Participants will receive a certificate of completion. CEUs are not offered for this workshop.

To register, click here. For more information, contact Jan at 212.991.8611 or jan@theheadachecoach.com.

The Mundo Method is unique in several ways:

  • It works with locating, palpating, identifying, and manipulating specific felt sensations.
  • You have to be it to see it. When you’re centered and your touch is soft, your hands are more sensitive, assured, and effective, and the client can relax.
  • Because stress, worry, and fear can keep a headache in place, clients are gently coached in using their breathing, awareness, and posture during treatment.
  • For the most part, the therapy is delivered with the client seated and practitioner standing.

Participants will learn:

  • definitions, descriptions, and characteristics of the major headache types.
  • palpation skills to distinguish tension, migraine, and “mixed” headaches.
  • how to work on each headache type with subtle touch and directed mental focus.
  • how to center and position themselves and the client for maximum effectiveness.
  • mind-body relief and prevention techniques (seated/table) for shoulders, neck, head, face.
  • how to work on their own headaches or migraines with the Mundo Method.

Attendees will receive:

  • written handouts of distinctions, definitions, and techniques.
  • treatment evaluation forms.
  • assessments and coaching during the course.
  • homework practicum.

Who should attend?

Health and wellness professionals, including: bodywork practitioners, massage therapists, mind-body practitioners and instructors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurse practitioners, nurses, doctors, physician assistants, and allied caregivers.

What’s Your Headache Karma?

Mundo Method self-care

My article about the direct experience of working with the sensations of headache pain drew a very positive response, except for one. It is said that when we declare a path, the forces of the Universe align to challenge us, providing obstacles that help us navigate and fulfill the journey and, in some way, master the path. . . .

A cynical practitioner from an online alternative medicine group “congratulated” me on my choice of professions because I’d make lots of money. Patients would become lifelong friends to get relief even after I’d retire, but the headaches would keep returning. He doesn’t treat them in his practice because they’re a symptom, and symptoms have no cure. Treating the cause will make the symptoms go away, but, I, Jan Mundo, he concluded, have my eye on the big house, fancy car, and yacht, just like “Big Pharma.”

Wow. He doesn’t get my life or work, nor understand people with headaches. But, regarding hands-on relief . . . it’s awesome to work on the head, feel the sensations of a headache or migraine, and reverse its pain and symptoms on the spot—with touch and a focused mind! What’s bad about that? However, he was right about something. . . .

Finding the underlying causes of our headaches and migraines is key. And it is, indeed, the hero’s journey. If you began yours a long time ago, you might not be thinking of it so loftily and are probably sick of riding that painful merry-go-round. The good news is: despite what you’ve been told or tried before, you can solve your mystery and move on with your life!

It’s understandable: we want and need instant relief, especially after living with cycles of disabling pain over time. So, it sounds incredible that a mind-body program could transform our pain when the best medicines known to modern man haven’t, right?

When nothing seems to work, we worry that nothing will work, which affects our body. We all want to feel better, so we try a variety of medications, therapies, and practitioners. We get hopeful, frustrated, fearful, angry, resigned, and even cut off from our bodies, ourselves. I’m always delighted when a client walks in with a migraine! Why? Because I can do something about it. Especially excellent when it happens during a first session, hands-on relief provides hope that something can work. Being without pain is extremely freeing.

The first step in the journey is about experiencing our mind-body connection in real time. How does your body feel when thinking you’ll be stuck with migraines (or whatever) forever? What happens to your mood, breath, and anything else? On the other hand, how does your body feel when you have thoughts of being free of migraines (or whatever’s bothering you) forever? It doesn’t even have to happen. If you imagine it, your body will still produce those effects. There’s no thinking without a corresponding bodily response. That’s the first lesson.

The Headache Healing Program is really about karma, cause and effect: being aware, understanding, connecting the dots, and changing behaviors based on that detective work. Karma: if we change our actions, we’ll get a different result—in every aspect of our lives. LOL, that’s all. I’m only talking about a total reboot! Can you imagine a more entertaining and captivating ride? To quote my late teacher Stephen Gaskin: “How about just up-and-changing?”

Our method is about (often within a larger unfolding beginning with solving your migraines) individual empowerment, transformation, and self-generation. We focus on body-mind-awareness therapies and practices to prevent and relieve headaches, migraines, and pain—and to face and resolve trauma and whatever keeps us stuck.

You can get better, move beyond living in pain, and enjoy an active, healthy, creative, meaningful life. What a powerful and revolutionary approach: to feel renewed, vibrant, energetic, and centered. Most importantly, you’ll know what to do and how to do it. You’re in control.

In The Headache Healing Program: discover the causes of your cycles of pain, learn practices that remedy them, and feel better than you have in years. Begins in one week. Register Now for our 8-week program (two hours per week): NYC (9/30-11/18) or online (9/29-11/17). If you’re interested in the program and would like to talk with me first, please fill out the Contact Form to schedule a call, send a note, or have me call you.

Here’s to your headache and migraine transformation! “Put your whole self in.” Let’s go!
