  Utilizing traditional acupressure points for headache relief.

Experts estimate that 90% of all headaches are caused from tension and only 6% are migraines. Recurring headaches may be a sign of underlying health problems or possible disease. Many people who suffer frequent headaches may be experiencing allergic reaction to foods such as wheat, chocolate, or monosodium glutamate (MSG) or sulfites found in a wide variety of processed foods. Health problems such as bruxism (teeth grinding), hypertension, hypoglycemia, irritable bowel syndrome, spinal subluxation, and arthritis affecting the muscles, are possible situations that can perpetuate headache pain.

Most types of headaches respond to bodywork techniques. A responsible bodyworker/massage therapist will ask clients if they have consulted their doctor to determine the source of their headaches. This is often helpful, especially in the case of migraine headaches, where a combination of nutritional supplements and drugs may be appropriate in addition to bodywork.

Headaches of all types including migraines have trigger points that relate to nervous system impulses and buildup of metabolic wastes in the tissues. Most of these headaches can be relieved in five to ten minutes by utilizing a few simple home-self care techniques that are demonstrated and easily learned in a few minutes. In most cases these techniques abate or erase headaches faster than any medication and are more dependable.


"I suffered with migraine headaches for eleven years before seeing Ken about two years ago. He used a combination of techniques including acupressure and myofascial release, and I'm not sure what else, but it felt good. Since my first session with him I have been 95 percent free of headaches. Ken also helped me with my neck and low back pain, and I no longer have tingling in my fingers. He also taught me how I could stay pain free by using the TheraCane."

"When I had my car accident in January of this year, I experienced severe headaches and stiff neck with a lot of pain shooting into my arm and shoulders from my neck. I truly didn't think that there was anything that could be done to alleviate my pain quickly and that I would be stuck with it for quite sometime. Ken performed this technique on me, and it was amazing what a difference it made. I felt almost immediate relief, and since the first treatment have continued to improve consistently.

Because of how well this worked for me, I had my mother come in to see Ken when she was in town visiting. She was resigned to living with pain as she thought that medications were the only thing that would reduce the pain (but she did not want to become chemically dependent).
Since her visit with Ken, she has felt enormous improvement and has told me that there has even been a day where she did not experience any pain. She is searching for a therapist in the Denver area who has similar training.


I feel that this therapy is especially beneficial, and I would definitely recommend it to others as well as continue it for myself. Thanks!"
