Migraine Headaches

Migraine Headaches is a chronic neurological disease characterized by recurrent moderate to severe headaches often in association with a number of symptoms. Typically the headache affects one half of the head, is pulsating in nature, and lasts from 2 to 72 hours. Associated symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound, or smell. The pain is generally made worse by physical activity. Up to one-third of people with migraine headaches perceive an aura: a transient visual, sensory, language, or motor disturbance which signals that the headache will soon occur. Occasionally an aura can occur with little or no headache following it. About two-thirds of cases run in families. Changing hormone levels may also play a role, as migraines affect slightly more boys than girls before puberty, but about two to three times more women than men. Initial recommended management is with simple analgesics such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen for the headache. Globally, approximately 15% of the population is affected by migraines at some point in life.


Drug-Free Relief from Migraine HeadachesAudrey Borst / Wells, ME

Having a migraine headache can really knock you out. My daughter would have to retreat to total darkness in her room when a migraine struck. Jane "saw" that a vertebra in Audrey's upper neck was constricting the blood flow to her brain. She was able to "open up the area" and alleviate the problem.

I met Jane in person and heard a testimonial from a colleague of how he had back pain every day to the point of crawling on his hands and knees each morning when he got out of bed. He volunteered to be Jane's subject in a live demonstration. He actually started crying after Jane had laid hands on him because for the first time in as long as he could remember his back pain went away, after just minutes with Jane. It was because of her calming nature and this testimonial that I trusted taking my daughter to Jane and see if this alternative therapy would help.

Audrey, 15 at the time, was experiencing migraine headaches on increasingly frequent intervals. Her doctor said it was likely hormonal issues associated with puberty. I made an appointment for Jane to provide a session for her.

As Jane scanned her she asked, "have you had any sports injuries?" Audrey replied that she had been doing cheer-leading stunting for a number of years and on more than one occasion girls had fallen on top of her head and neck. Jane said she saw a lot of damage to soft tissue for such a young person. Jane was able to "create space" for the artery which was being restricted in that one session.

How wonderful that she doesn't have to suffer any longer and that she doesn't have to take strong over-the-counter drugs! (Our family likes to be drug-free.) She has had more sessions to repair other neurological damage caused by this sport. I am so glad I trusted my intuition and took Audrey for her first session.
