5 Types of Headache that Bowen Therapy Helps Relieve
For most people, the occasional headache is a regular part of life.
Unwanted, but at the same time, untroubling.
Even chronic headaches are controlled with medication reasonably well.
But the time and energy that goes into constant pain medication can hit you in the hip pocket, and if your medication fails to make things right, what do you do next?
This is when Bowen Therapy becomes helpful.
When you treat more than just the acute pain, it becomes possible to help treat the root cause of your headache, not just the symptoms.
These are the types of headaches which are helped by the Bowen Therapy.
Say goodbye to these headaches
#1 Medication Overuse
Also known as ‘rebound headaches’, these headaches are caused when you take pain medication for more than a few days a week. Though it may feel like you are relieving your symptoms, over use of medication could be creating a “rebound” effect.
It only takes two doses of common painkillers in a week to build the potential for this headache. With Bowen Therapy, you’ll receive pain control that may limit your use of medication, helping you avoid rebound headaches and removing your initial headaches too.
Migraine headaches are a severe condition that can be debilitating.
They can change your vision, create blurriness, and cause extreme sensitivity to light.
Some of these painful headaches can last for days at a time, impacting your ability to live a normal life.
Bowen Therapy can reduce headache frequency and severity as part of your overall treatment plan, both lessening the impact of your migraines, and reducing the overall number of migraines too.
#3 Sinus Headaches
These headaches create pounding pain around your nose and eyes and feel as though you’ve just taken a punch from the heavyweight champion of the world.
Some describe a sinus headache as an icepick forced into their head, whatever the description the result is the same - pounding pain.
Although headaches like these are uncommon, Bowen Therapy can work alongside prescription antibiotics to ease congestion and clear your air passageways.
#4 TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Headaches)
When the pain begins on the side of your face, or if your jaw feels tender at the joint, then you may be experiencing a temporomandibular joint headache.
To relieve this painful headache you must heal the source of pain.
Bowen Therapy works to realign your jaw through gentle treatments that work around the facial muscles, helping you find balance both physically and mentally.
#5 Tension Headaches
Muscular tension creates headaches that can feel like migraines.
They often result from improper posture, sleeping positions, or heavy stress.
These headaches feel like a band of pressure that starts at the point of tension and moving upward into your head to cause pain.
Bowen Therapy works to release this tension, which reduces the impact it has on your headaches.
Headache? Piece of cake!
If you are suffering from acute or chronic headaches and nothing seems to help, then now is the time to give Bowen Therapy a try.
As a cost-effective, gentle, and effective way to reduce and remove headaches, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.
