Pain, Tension or Headaches

Chronic pain is described in many ways; burning, shooting o aching to name just a few.  That pain is often accompanied by stiffness, tightness and discomfort. This could be from trauma or a pulled muscle or even a basic body ache.

A migraine, tension headaches or other type of headache can keep you in bed for days.  The physical pain is not only felt, but after days, weeks, sometimes months of just not feeling well or being in pain often has an affect on your emotional wellbeing.

Tension  - we all have those moments, can’t sleep, restless, tight shoulder muscles, feeling anxious which is causing the body to ‘tense up’.

All of the above can be traced back to stress without you even realizing it; it could happen from time to time, or maybe even like clockwork, but when it’s prolonged, your emotional side can be affected as well causing you to either become more anxious and stressed out or even depressed.  What can you do about it other than take pain killers or wait it out?  Many clients often first try a Holistic Alternative when and after they've "tried everything," but yet are still experiencing pain, tension headaches and ongoing stress. This is where energy work can be supportive and greatly improve one's quality of life.

More practitioners are becoming aware of the proven effects of Reiki or Energy Work when it comes to treating chronic pain, tension or tension headaches.  Reiki helps a person find relief from not only the physical aspects of chronic pain and headaches but also the anxiety that often comes with it. Reiki or Energy Work treatments work on a deep level allowing relaxation, reduce fatigue and depression, and strengthen a person’s overall sense of wellbeing.

Awaken Your Health Naturally offers holistic modalities for all the above.  Each session is custom tailored to meet your specific needs.  Whether that incorporates:

  • a half hour session of reducing headache pain, targeting key points around your eyes, face and head,

  • working on marma points, (which is like acupuncture but using hands to release trigger pain points) to target specific areas of pain to reduce and release the pain

  • incorporating some Energy/Reiki healing work to help reduce the stress or tension

  • a hot stone foot massage

There are many options available. (Please see other informational boxes for more detailed information).
