Yoga Therapy for Headache Relief
This is the first book to use yoga as a comprehensive, permanent alternative solution to the standard, often only marginally effective, treatments for headaches.
Headaches are one of the most common and aggravating health problems we experience. More than 40 million Americans suffer from serious or chronic headaches sometime during their lives, and Americans consume over 30,000 tons of over-the counter painkillers each year!
Co-written by an experienced medical doctor and an acclaimed professional yoga teacher, Yoga Therapy for Headache Relief is the first book that uses yoga as a comprehensive, permanent alternative solution to the standard-often only marginally effective-treatments.
Topics covered include: the different types of headaches and how to tell them apart; how yoga can help them; two safe, effective routines—one short, the other longer—detailing which yoga postures to use for best results; additional alternative techniques that may be helpful; other prescription and non-prescription medical therapies worth considering; and a bibliography for further reading.
