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.
“I have followed Jan Mundo’s work for many years and have found it not only useful but profound. Although the focus of the book is on headaches, it speaks to a much bigger subject: the quality of our relationship with our feelings our minds, and our bodies.” — Gay Hendricks, PhD, author of The Big Leap and Five Wishes
I loved being a guest on Dr. Paula Joyce’s radio show, “Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit,” to talk about the deeper energetic ways that headache and migraine sufferers can heal. She and I are simpatico souls, whose mission is to empower people to follow their personal paths of healing and take charge of their life and health. Thank you, Dr. Paula Joyce for having me on! *

“Pain, disease, and conditions of the body are treatable, and even curable, in ways that we haven’t understood until recently. The dominant belief that headaches and migraines are not curable has led to unnecessary suffering and addictions. There is a way out of this when we choose to take charge of our own health. I have learned this for myself, and I no longer get migraines or serious headaches. If I feel the beginning of a headache, I can get rid of it in minutes. Many researchers point to data that headaches change the brain and you need the medications. What they don’t tell us is that the brain is also capable of healing itself and changing back to a condition of health. The path to healing involves taking a close look at the way we live, including our diet, relationships, and how we deal with our current and past emotions, stresses, and traumas. Please join us Thursday to learn how to take back your life and defeat migraines and headaches.”
