The U.S. has an estimated 45 million people with chronic headaches. As a massage therapist, you are uniquely positioned to help relieve their pain naturally and drug-free.
In this article for massage and bodywork therapists, I describe how I work with headache and migraine clients, whether they come to a session during an episode or are learning how to prevent their cycles of pain between bouts.
I appreciate MASSAGE Magazine for seeing the value of this work for clients and practitioners — now and eleven years prior to publication of THE HEADACHE HEALER’S HANDBOOK (2018, New World Library), when they first published my writing.
Do you feel like you’ve tried everything to control your headaches or migraine attacks? Are you reluctant to try a new therapy because you’re afraid it won’t work? Why is it important to be open to new possibilities?
In “Feeling Stuck? How to Invoke the Mind of a Headache Warrior,” excerpted from The Headache Healer’s Handbook and published on MigraineAgain, I discuss resetting your viewpoint to beginner’s mind in order to become your own headache detective if you’ve been struggling with pain — and cite stories and research that point to the power of placebo in healing.
The process of discovering your own mind-body (body-mind) connection is universally valuable; you don’t have to be afflicted with headaches or migraine to benefit from or experience it.
One year ago I fulfilled my longtime vision and mission by publishing The Headache Healer’s Handbook. What a blessing to celebrate my launch with dear family and friends!
I am so grateful to every single person who bought, recommended, and reviewed my book; supported, advised, and cheered me on; and hosted me on their radio show, podcast, webcast, blog, website, panel, and live event.
I love helping people transform their pain and live joyful, creative, empowered lives. The journey continues, and the work expands.
