National Migraine Week.



It's National Migraine Week 3-9 September.

Did you know that Migraine is the third most common disease in the world, with an estimated global prevalence of one in seven people #notjustaheadache.


 

 In some recent peer reviewed scientific medical studies Yoga therapy has been proven to help reduce the frequency, pain intensity and duration of migraines. These studies had hugely significant results with a halving of mostly all scores compared to the control groups. Yoga therapy also helps with mood, sleep and other associated symptoms of migraines.

Massage too has been scientifically proven to help, a 2006 study in New Zealand where participants were given weekly massage sessions recorded reduced anxiety, heart rate and salivary cortisol levels. Perceived stress and coping efficacy were also assessed and the massage participants exhibited greater improvements in migraine frequency and sleep quality.

I have had great success helping people reduce their suffering over the years and have specific Yoga therapy and myofascial release massage strategies for migraines and headaches that can can help you too.
