Everyone experiences a headache at some time or another, but for many people, headaches are an unending and incapacitating problem. Headache, one of the most common complaints, is a symptom rather than a disorder in itself; it accompanies many diseases and conditions, including emotional distress.
Most headaches are caused by vasodilation of blood vessels in tissues surrounding the brain, or from tension in the neck and scalp muscles. But not only! Headaches can be associated with allergy, digestive problems and other issues.
There are many different types of headaches – tension headaches, migraine headaches, sinus headaches, cluster headaches, organic headaches… – and differentiating them is also a bit of a `headache`. Many are accompanied by nausea and other symptoms.
Essential Oils are not the remedies that first spring to mind for most headache sufferers but aromatherapy really comes into its own when treating headaches. A good understanding of different types of headaches is essential and diagnosis is often difficult. For many sufferers painkillers are a necessity but luckily we can help – with the right approach and a good selection of essential oils, of course!
This workshop is designed to help you gain a better understanding of headaches and how to deal with them effectively in order for you to be able to offer this service to your clients
