Treating Headaches & Migraines

  • Type:
  • Seminar/Workshop
  • Time:
  • 15 hours
This two-day course looks at practical techniques available for the treatment of headaches in general, and migraines in particular. Includes extensive handout.Day 1: There will be short discussions during demonstrations and between table-work, concerning what structures in the neck and shoulder girdle have to be addressed and taken into consideration when treating headaches and migraines; either in between episodes or during a headache/migraine. The course is meant to be practical, and so attendees should be ready to start working on each other soon after the seminar starts. The techniques demonstrated and practiced come from a variety of disciplines, and are chosen for their safety, ease of use, their ability to fit neatly into any therapist’s style, and above all, for their effectiveness!Day 2: We will expand on the structures (articular, muscular, vascular and neurological) being treated, and in turn, how the function of these various tissues can be used as tools of treatment. Therefore, lots more demonstration and practice happens on day two as well.Please bring a massage table, pillows, sheets, and loose clothing. Most techniques can be done dressed, but work just as well draped (which will be demonstrated).
