According to some estimates, migraine occurs in about 15% of the general population. The incidence of non-migraine headaches is much higher. Associated pain is usually managed by medication, but some patients do not tolerate migraine medication due to side effects or prefer to avoid medication for other reasons. Non-pharmacological management is an alternative treatment option. 

This experiential workshop introduces a collection of self-help tools and techniques for the headache and migraine sufferer. As with other health related concerns, headache sufferers are increasingly turning to complementary and alternative medicine practices to combat the pain and disability of migraines, tension headaches, and related symptoms. Incorporating recent scientific evidence, this workshop offers hands-on techniques and tools that can help mitigate, reverse, and prevent the unpleasant symptoms from head pain. 

This hands-on workshop is similar to the one offered at Circle Yoga for the first time in September 2012. Some techniques will be repeated, others newly introduced, and sharing encouraged! This workshop is appropriate for returnees and new comers alike. With Luann Fortune and Joanne Checchi.
