Migraine sufferers always feel the onset of that dreaded headache. Their vision becomes blurred and then a throbbing headache sets in. Many migraine sufferers also experience bouts of nausea and extreme sensitivity to light. They have to lie down in a darkened room until the headache abates. Migraines can last for days, leaving the sufferer feeling debilitated and fatigued. Women are more prone to migraine headaches because they are often associated with menstrual cycles.
Alternative healing remedies such as acupuncture and homoeopathy can help
alleviate migraines but so too can Bowen Therapy. A research study in the UK proved that Bowen Therapy is a successful migraine combatant. Thirty-nine migraine headache sufferers underwent three Bowen Therapy treatments over a two-week period. This was followed by a month of observation after which 80% of the participants either experienced a decrease in the severity of the headache, a decrease in the frequency of the migraine attack, or both.
