“Jan introduced me to techniques that instilled in me the power to modify and eventually control my headaches.”

If you suffer with chronic headaches or migraines, have tried everything, including alternative therapies, and want a solution that gets to the heart of the problem and helps you move on—without relying on medications—I can help. It’s a myth that you can’t get better. You don’t have to “just live with it.” You can free yourself from the burden of headaches.

The Headache Healing Program is a holistic transformative experience that consists of: body-mind self-care, headache-healthy diet, breathing, meditation, postural awareness, ergonomics, self-massage, Mundo Method hands-on headache therapy, somatic centering practices. Each segment of the program is designed to address and remedy specific concerns and triggers that contribute to your cycles of pain.

You will receive:
• Handouts that support each lesson in class
• Homework that carries the lessons into your life
• Coaching and assessments: headache history questionnaire, in-class, homework, progress, Q&A

Hands-on Headache Healing

“Go ahead and close your eyes” I said in a calm, soft voice. “I’m just going to put my hands on your head.” I draped one hand delicately on the front of her head, the other on the back. My fingers listened for and were drawn to a pulsation. Stronger than a regular pulse, it had an electrical quality, almost like mini-explosions on her forehead. I held lightly, meeting the pulse at its own level of amplitude, and felt it fight back. I intensely focused my attention on the spot under my finger. “That’s where I feel it,” she affirmed as I did battle with the headache.

When the pulsations quieted in front, I felt the “emptying-out” at the back and knew it was over. She opened her eyes, blinking in the light, saying, “I felt it move from the left to the right, then gather up and evaporate—right here,” pointing to the back of her head.

Her report matched the real-time “bio-feedback” I’d felt in my hands, heard through her words, and seen in embodied signals during the process. The sensations I’d felt correlated with her various states of pain and relief.

This week I’ll be announcing new programs that train headache patients and professionals in the Mundo Method of headache and migraine relief therapy. If you’re interested in receiving the information, please contact me using the contact form on this site or write to jmundo@headachehealing dot com.

Childhood Abuse Affects Genes and Health in Adulthood

Childhood abuse and trauma produce hormonal & gene changes that affect children into adulthood. Wonderfully clear article about current research being conducted on stress hormones. http://to.pbs.org/1s7ubUo Many of my headache/migraine clients have experienced trauma and abuse, and I find that it underlies their bodily tension, mood, and mindset about their health and lives in general.
