Migraine Headache

posted in: General News, Hypnotherapy | 0

Migraine headaches vary from mild to severe and can have a major effect on your quality of life if you suffer from them. Hypnotherapy offers a way to reduce the severity of your migraines, to recognise triggers  and react to those triggers differently so that the frequency of your attacks is reduced.

What Causes Migraines?

Some of the common triggers for migraine attacks include stress, disturbed sleep patterns, certain foods and in women, hormonal variations. Many people are not even familiar with exactly what triggers their migraine headaches. Triggers may not instantly set off a migraine attack and may take anything from hours up to a few days. There is undoubtedly a link between migraine and the release of stress-related chemicals into the bloodstream and this may be the reason that hypnotherapy can be very effective in many cases.

Symptoms Of Migraine

  • Intense throbbing pain, possibly in just one temple, or forhead, or around an eye or back of head
  • Most of the time pain is on one side of head only although sometimes it can be in both
  • Pain can “switch sides” from attack to attack.
  • Normally aggravated by everyday activities
  • Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, sensitivity to light and sound, etc
