IMG_4753

It snowed the other day and looks like someone left me a message.

My book proposal won a contest! THE HEADACHE HEALER’S HANDBOOK: A Holistic, Hands-on Somatic Self-care Program for Migraine Relief and Prevention was awarded the Balboa Press self-publishing Master Package (value: $8149). It’s awesome!

I feel amazed and grateful that this company, founded by the inspiring author and healer Louise Hay, “got” my writing, my book, and my work. It feels wonderful to be seen and received in this way.

The Writer’s Workshop spurred me on to refining and updating my proposal and finishing and tightening up my book, which is nearing completion. Thank you to Hay House Writer’s Workshop and congratulations to my fellow prize winners.

I’m so excited to bring empowered headache and migraine self-care to the world to help the millions who suffer. Stay tuned!

To keep up with my latest, I’d be delighted if you’d Like my Facebook page, Jan Mundo, Headache Coach, and Follow me on Twitter at Headache Coach.

The official announcement from Hay House:

We were delighted with the response to our very first online Writers Workshop course contest, our inaugural group of graduates who took the course last year submitted so many fresh ideas. Our Editorial team read over 100 proposals [from 1400 attendees] and finally picked Romanian author, Dr. Dragos, as the overall winner of the Hay House contract for his book, The Pursuit of Dreams: Humble Beginnings, Real Life Stories, Wishes Fulfilled.

We also awarded a Balboa Press Master Package to Jan Mundo Headache Coach from New York, for her book, The Headache Healer’s Handbook: A Holistic, Hands-on Somatic Self-care Program for Migraine Relief and Prevention. The Inspire Balboa Press Package goes to Jessica Baker, LAc from Colorado, for her book, Plant Songs.

It takes so much courage and commitment to complete a full book proposal and send it in for consideration. We are really aware of this and want to applaud all of you for taking such a big step on your publishing journey. Please don’t stop now, you have already done the hardest part! As you will have learned from the course, there are many ways to get a book out into the world these days, the right path is waiting for you.

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.

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.
