Headaches and migraines
A migraine is normally a moderate or severe headache. You can also feel sick and you might feel oversensitive to light and sound.
Did you know that there are around 6 million people that suffer from migraines in the UK? We are talking about more than 10% of the UK population. These numbers can be quite scary.
According to the NHS, there are different types medication that you can take to battle the symptoms.
They also say that are different causes that can migraines like stress, fatigue, certain types of food or drink.
There are also ways to be able to reduce or prevent them like sports; meals, sleep and good habits.
But sometimes the triggers run deeper than this…
It is vital to have a combined treatment in order to reduce significantly headaches and migraines.
Sometimes certain situations can trigger migraines. Some of those triggers can be related to past experiences. Be aware that this is not always the case. The fact is that our mind controls a lot of conscious behaviours and even physical symptoms.
With hypnotherapy, we can look at these triggers and identify them. We can also understand what is imbalanced in your state of mind that causes the migraines.
Shamanic practices can be very beneficial especially if combined with hypnotherapy. As it is basically an energy treatment, it will balance the different aspects of your overall energy.
This will allow the energy to flow more freely not being blocked in specific regions. It will provide relaxation and a sense of calm.
I had 3 hypnotherapy sessions with Paulo to help me with my migraines. Paulo explored different techniques and after the first and final one I have seen a drastic reduction of my migraines and an absence of pressure around the right eye, which I tended to feel most days. This has lasted for 3 months with a 80% reduction in migraine occurrence and 50% in migraine strength.
After 3 months and with extra pressure from work, a couple of strong migraines have occurred again but they were isolated and I have not had any since. This is a major improvement compared to the last 3 years where migraines had become incapacitating and the effect of the hypnotherapy was very clear to me within the first week. I would strongly recommend Paulo as a hypnotherapist as he is someone who you can trust, feel comfortable with and who also seems to have a very good tone of voice for the job.
I feel that he has helped me a great deal in very little time while for a long time while GPs had only been able to treat the symptoms with very strong medicine. This is a good way to find the source of your problem and try to find your inner balance to be stronger. Hypnotherapy was not a treatment I would have thought to seek in the past but I now recommend it (done by Paulo) without reservation.
