Oh wait, you’ve tried everything known to man for headaches and migraines and been disappointed… Hoping for a natural (much less free or fast) solution is for dreamers, right?
It would be easy to get frustrated and give up or get skeptical that after trying 100 things, #101 could work…or that #101 even exists. I hear you….BUT even after relentlessly studying migraine relief and speaking with experts across the globe, I continue to discover more.
Different headache relief techniques work for different people
I love coming across new tools and techniques that can offer relief because I know not any one thing will work for everyone. And that’s why it was such a gift to meet Brodie and get to interview her about the acupoints she uses in her practice and teaches her clients who suffer from migraine headaches.
Unless you are a master of Chinese Medicine, I can pretty much guarantee you will learn a lot from Brodie’s interview and pick up some new tools for your toolbox.
