Mindfulness Meditation Helps Migraine Suffers
You don’t have to suffer in silence anymore as help could be round the corner, because mindfulness meditation helps migraine suffers melt away there stress and anxiety.
Researchers are now really digging into this area of research because…
Psychologists have already recognised its ability to treat a number of mental and physical conditions, and NUIG’s Centre for Pain Research believes it may assist in chronic headache pain management.
Up to 15 per cent of the Irish population is estimated to suffer from migraine alone, the centre points out, and those suffering chronic or recurrent headache are part of an “under-researched” grouping.
The online sessions in the research project, led by Angeline Traynor of NUIG, have been tailored specifically for headache pain by clinical psychology lecturer Dr Jonathan Egan.
They will focus on active self-management, instruction in a range of relaxation techniques, coping skills and cognitive behavioural therapy techniques to help identify negative thinking and coping patterns.
The researchers say they are specifically interested in hearing from people who have chronic daily headache, defined as chronic head pain, which occurs on 15 or more days per month over a period of three to four months.
This would include tension-type headache, migraine and medication-overuse headache.
“Many people find that the combination of cognitive and relaxation therapies which are offered in this headache management programme enable them to take back control of their lives and engage more in daily activities with the knowledge they have the tools necessary to better manage their pain,” Dr Egan said.
