I've Struggled With Migraines For 10 Years

I've struggled with migraines for 10 years and this book not only gave me an understandable reason why and where the pain was originating (not in my head, where I assumed it started), but it also details how to manipulate those "trigger points" for lasting pain relief. Thank you, Valerie!!!

Successful pain management

It works! I've been dealing with chronic headaches for months and got to the point where I had to stop taking so many NSAIDs so I took a chance and bought this book. While I wish I didn't have to work the points every day, I am AMAZED that in doing so I am ususally pain free afterwards. In fact facial pain that I thought was sinus related has been relieved after working the points! To me this information is invaluable.

Great Book!

Ive been a Massage therapist for more than 10 years,specializing in Neuromuscular therapy and Structural Bodywork. Valerie DeLaune has written a great book! Very simple to understand for the laypeople and great information for the beginner therapist and the seasoned therapist. This should be a book to recommend for your clients. I recommend them to my patients and had great results. It has really precise explanation on how to treat trigger points,what causes them, among other interesting information. If you like to get relief from your headaches and migraines this is a must for you!

If you're serious about treating your headache pain...

I spend a lot of time behind a computer, and then turn around and play comeptitive contact sports-- headaches come with the territory. This workbook is packed with superb information on self-help techniques such as applying pressure to trigger points, stretching, and mobilizations. Equally helpful are discussions of "perpetuating factors," or causes of particular headache pain, and subsequent suggestions for alleviating pain long-term by changing work environment, body mechanics, and diet that I'm already applying to my daily routine. The Head Pain Map (pg. 76) was great and helped me quickly identify which sections of text to refer to. This is a fantastic guide for people who are serious about treating their headache pain and are willing to invest some time and energy into thoroughly reading the text and practicing the techniues consistently. This book is not for someone looking for a 10-minute, instant and lasting fix. My only criticism is that some of the images of trigger points have overlays that are difficult to make out. I used this book in addition to Valerie DeLaune's Pain Relief with Trigger Point Self-help (1.3) Book-on-CDROM for expanding my self-treatment to include levator scapula trigger points and relief for neck and back pain and enthusiatically recommend it in addition to this workbook.

Invaluable Reference Book

Ms. DeLaune shares her extensive knowledge of trigger points, and how they can cause persistent pain, in this valuable reference book. The book is cleverly designed in 3 parts, which allows the reader to learn more about trigger points and causes of headaches, while immediately starting to use the self-help techniques. The photographs and diagrams make the material highly accessible, even to those who are unfamiliar with anatomy. The book is most valuable for those who are willing to make the commitment to treat their own symptoms. I highly recommend this book for it's diagnostic approach, helpful hints, and muscle-by-muscle approach. As a long-time headache sufferer, I can attest that Ms. DeLaune's techniques can provide relief.
