A new way of thinking about headaches and migraines

Beat pain and strain the natural way

Do you suffer from headaches or migraines?

If the answer is yes, consider these questions:

  • Have you had much dental work?

  • Do you clench your teeth when stressed?

  • Grind your teeth at night?

  • Have you had a fall on your tailbone or injury to this area?

  • Is your face in alignment?

These may seem like unusual questions to ask. However, our jaws and headaches can be linked. How so, you ask? Well, if any part of your body is affected by strain or you are in pain, it can result in discomfort in other areas.

I regularly help clients check their jaw alignment with Bowen Therapy.

Bowtech the original Bowen Therapy modality was developed and created by the late Tom Bowen, in Geelong Australia. A gentle form of body work, subtle moves are performed over the muscles and connective tissues, sending messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of a preferred, more relaxed, balanced way of wellbeing.

Bowen Therapy has a unique perspective on our jaw

(also known as the TMJ joint) as being important for our whole body’s alignment. The jaw needs to be slowly worked up to – this usually happens on the third session, sometimes the second. However, I’ve had clients return for their next appointment after one session and they look physically different! This can be a combination of being more relaxed from the therapy and the jaw/TMJ having slowly shifted into a natural resting position for that person. Remarkable!

If we address the body with Bowen procedures, we often see a cascade of events that can lead towards realignment and stress reduction. If our body and mind are relaxed, we often notice a positive shift in all aspects of our wellbeing. Learning Bowen therapy has been fascinating to say the least.

Simple strategies for headaches and migraines include:

  • Reduce exposure to excess preservatives and additives in foods, sugar and alcohol

  • Drinking enough water each day (up to eight glasses)

  • Ensuring we eat enough magnesium-containing foods

  • Getting enough sleep (7-9 hours)

  • Consider taking Entire Katoa’s magnesium supplement - it’s great for relaxing tense muscles supporting sleep

  • Check in with your doctor to rule out anything more serious as well as potential side-effects from prescription medications.
