A migraine headache is far more than an average, run-of-the-mill headache. Instead, it’s a series of neurological symptoms marked by throbbing pain on one side of your head, blurry vision, and sensitivity to lights and sounds.
Migraine attacks vary in length and severity. Some are relatively quick while others last for hours or even days at a time.
Migraine headaches occur in four separate stages, but not everyone who suffers from migraine experiences the condition the same way.
Prodrome is the period of time directly leading up to a migraine. Many people experience subtle symptoms during the prodrome stage including muscle stiffness, irritability, or persistent food cravings.
Auras are sensory symptoms caused by migraine headaches. They usually last for between 20-60 minutes and include bright flashes, halos around lights, tingling sensations in your limbs, and difficulty speaking.
The attack stage of a migraine occurs when your migraine fully sets in. Common symptoms associated with the attack stage include throbbing pain, nausea, and sensitivity to smells and sounds.
The post-drome stage occurs directly after the migraine attack. Many people report feeling relaxed and even elated during this stage, but also exhausted.
The team at Miracle Wands Wellness Center performs miracle wand treatment on-site.
Prior to your session, your provider performs a physical exam and asks you a series of questions about the symptoms you’re experiencing.
Next, you’re asked to lay down, and your provider places the miracle wands on the specific pressure points causing your migraine pain, a process that is known to trigger thermotherapy. In addition to increasing circulation and easing inflammation, thermotherapy is clinically proven to ease nausea and vomiting, two common symptoms associated with migraine headaches.
Many of the prescription medications used to treat migraine symptoms present side effects that are worse than the headaches themselves.
Miracle wand treatment is entirely non-invasive and non-chemical. It encourages cell generation and improved health via the strategic placement of miracle wands at various pressure points across your body.
