30 Years of Migraine – Gone !

Introduction to Body Stress Release

BSR is a non-therapeutic complementary health technique based on the principle that the body can heal itself. We identify lines of tension and release them. We don’t diagnose or treat conditions. We don’t do massage, prescribe medication, manipulate limbs or work with machines. The information below is drawn from reports given by the client on his/her BSR experience.

Most important point description:

The client was having severe headaches since she was 8 years old, 32 years in total! She had these daily, and they are usually bad for 3 days per week, and severe for 4 days per week. Rarely a day went by where she did not have a headache and for several days they were debilitating.

Other symptoms:

In addition, the client had a tight jaw for which she was having Botox injections and she also had a chronic niggling cough and acid reflux.

Additional information:

The client was worn out from the continual pain and felt anxious about all aspects of her work and social life. Sadly this was etched on her face and impacted on her outlook on life. She felt worn out.

Impact on life:

The client felt that her body and her life were not her own anymore. She was overwhelmed by painful headaches and felt that she was taking an excessive amount of prescribed medication that did not seem to be easing her situation at all, as nothing was helping to relieve the headaches. All the other issues also gradually dissipated and only came back when she was particularly stressed at work.

Changes to symptoms:

In total the client came for thirteen sessions over a period of seven months. Her headache pain eased within a three sessions but had initially got worse after an initial release. This is often quite normal and one the initial stress is released symptoms can get worse before they improve. For her first two months she attended nearly each week and thereafter went onto maintenance sessions once per month in order to stay headaches free, which largely she did. Coming to BSR changed the client's life. In consultation with her doctor she reduced all her medications, virtually to nothing and remained drug and pain free.

Client comments:

She had a very positive reaction in her three initial recommended sessions. After the third session she said "This is the first time in over 30 years I have not had a headache" and was quite emotional. Such was the change to her life she was going on to qualify as a pilot for a career pivot.
