How Energy Healing Can Relieve Headaches

   "Most of the tension that occurs in your brain comes from negative thoughts that.... lead to tension headaches..."  ~ Ron W. Rathbun, The Way is Within

     Everyone has experienced a headache at one time or another. But for some they can be debilitating, and scary... because sometimes headaches can have serious causes.  Although these are uncommon, it should be noted that headaches can be caused by hypothyroidism, stroke, AV malformation, arteritis, brain tumors, high blood pressure, meningitis and aneurysm.

    Much more commonly headaches are attributed to "stress" - an umbrella term used to define our response to anything perceived as a threat to our well-being. But the question is - why do we respond to everyday situations as threats to our well-being?  And how does stress cause a headache?

     In Western medicine, stress is believed to cause headaches through muscle tension and a disturbance in blood flow. But what causes the disturbance in blood flow and the muscle tension?

   Energy Healing for Headaches

     For over 20 years I've worked with many clients in my energy healing practice with headaches and have suffered from them myself.  This is what I have discovered causes the stress, tension and disruption in blood flow:
  • Tight Membranes. Headaches can be caused by a restriction in the membranes and the flow of cerebral spinal fluid through the craniosacral system from some known or unknown trauma, which can be alleviated with light touch craniosacral therapy. 
  • Energetic Congestion. Headaches can also be caused by the congestion of being "all in your head." This happens when we create an imbalance by putting too much emphasis on the mental body.  You can bring yourself back into balance by focusing on your physical body, especially your legs and feet. Take some deep breaths, focusing on your breathing while you wiggle your toes and feel the sensation of your feet on the floor. You can also relieve the congestion and pain using this hydrotherapy water technique.  Earthing practices can also relieve this energy congestion through grounding to the Earth. 
  • Negative Belief Systems. In my experience, however, I have found the most common cause of headaches are negative belief systems. The energy of our thought-beliefs disrupt the flow of energy in the body-mind, which initiates the physiological response that produces a headache. The belief that every day situations are threats to our well-being has a direct affect on energy flow.  
    Many individuals I have worked with were shocked to experience sudden pain in their head at the exact moment we are discussing an issue. It’s a signal that we've just hit on a core issue.  And once the thought-energy block is released, the headache is gone in an instant.

    The next time you get a sudden headache, pay attention to what you were thinking about at the time it started or just before. This will give you a clue as to the cause. Then shine a light on what you were thinking about by talking about it, writing it down in a journal, or using EFT to tap on the issue. The most important thing is to not judge yourself for whatever this thought-belief is. Judging it keeps it hidden where it creates a headache. Bringing it out into the open and accepting yourself unconditionally releases the tension.

   Headaches can also be caused by:
  • Dehydration. Try drinking a glass of water.  Be sure you are drinking at least 8 eight-ounce glasses of water a day until your urine is straw-colored. (some supplements can temporarily darken urine)
  • Fatigue. Headaches can be a sign that you need to rest.  A drop of peppermint essential oil on the back of the neck or forehead, listening to meditation music, or closing your eyes and taking some deep breaths can relieve a fatigue headache if you are unable to rest at the time. 
  • Ascension. Headaches can also be associated with ascension symptoms. If you would like to learn more about that means, click HERE.
