"Headache Relief" can be useful for many different types of headache. Headache is probably one of the most complex and disabling pain conditions to understand and treat. "Headache Relief" addresses the various types of headache with images and hypnotic suggestions to relax and relieve the many mechanisms that may both trigger and maintain a headache. After entering a comfortable trance state, hypnotic suggestions are given to relieve symptoms of pain, relax and retrain muscles, release endorphins, improve sleep, quiet nerves, adjust blood vessels, and ease tension. Migraine, cluster, muscle contraction, and tension headaches are targeted by this tape. Regular practice with this mode of "mind/body medicine" can develop skills for combating headaches as well as retraining one's body for healthier patterns of function that lessen the frequency of headache.

"This has been a very pleasant surprise. Because we own and operate a toy store, the holiday season is pretty much an 8 week headache with a 4 week hangover. This year, my Christmas present to myself was finding this CD. While I did not get the chance to start listening until the season was almost past, the "recovery" period accelerated so dramatically after I began this bit of self-hypnosis that I have hardly had a twinge of stress headache at all since I began. After just a few "trial runs", I kept waiting for a headache to show up so I could see how I was responding -- but it hasn't come yet. So I just keep practicing those "trial runs!" GOOD JOB, GUYS!"
