Understanding Your Headache – Women’s Health

A few weeks ago, I announced my plans to create my next course: How to Get Rid of Headache or Migraine – Sleep better, accomplish more, laugh again and feel joy 

As some of you know, I suffered from daily chronic headaches in my early 20s, which lead me to qualify as a chiropractor and later discover the underlying cause of my headaches (my forward head posture). Ultimately, that had me leave private practice to take my posture advise online full time (as a posture doctor) and I’ve never looked back!

Recently, I reached out and asked you about your headaches and this is what I found out:

80% of you are female:

80% of you are over 40:

Your pain varies but for many of you it’s moderate:

The location for 40% of you, suggests posture (likely forward head posture) is an issue:

At least 40% of you have the type of headache that responds very well to self treatment!

    Great! This could be really useful for me. I am hypermobile and easily create problems for myself in bed when I am half asleep and not concentrating as I change position during the night. So regularly I wake up in the morning very early with no headache but as I lie in bed the headache develops very quickly and only dissipates about 4 hours later. Coffee helps the headache to go I think! At one time I had some Alexander Technique sessions which banished the headaches for about a month! Wonderful but I can’t afford any more sessions! I am hoping your lectures will do the trick because if I gain the knowledge I can self-cure. Fingers crossed!

    p.s. how about a special lecture on hypermobility?

    Would this course be useful for someone who suffers from frequent migraines? I’ve explored many avenues, without success. I know that some people think tension and migraine headaches are two distinct entities and others don’t. I know that I have a lot of tension, soreness and stiffness in my upper back, shoulders, neck and base of skull and it seems to me that this must be restricting blood flow to my brain, which could be at least one factor in the migraines. I have just started doing your ‘head forward’ correction exercises (although my posture is actually pretty good–I wonder if even a slight head forward position could be contributing along with other things?).

      Hi Kathryn,

      I found many of my clients with Migraine over the years have done well with the same information and exercises I’ve put in the course, so yes.

      Some migraines seemingly don’t respond, but I certainly think the course and information are well worth exploring, having had a history of headache myself.

      Paula
