Do you suffer from Migraines too?
I was very interested to hear that Tracey Butcher has a speciality in Migraines. As a long term sufferer I have had what seems like hundreds of visits to the doctor over the years. I was told recently they were probably hormone related, I was even tested for early menopause! However, the attacks got more frequent (twice a month) they were getting more severe & lasting longer. The attacks made me despondent, and left me worrying that it would affect my business. Sound familiar?
No one seemed to understand or know how to help. It got so that I planned my work and social diary around when I thought an attack was likely to happen, it was becoming a real inconvenience!
I booked an initial assessment with Tracey Butcher and It was during this appointment that I was informed that migraines are often blamed on hormones when they can often be prevented with improved posture. This struck a chord with me. At almost 6 foot I have always slouched or stooped. A throwback from school when I tried to hide myself away, a failed attempt to prevent the bullying! I started work in the mid 80’s, one desk job followed another, where it would appear I picked up some pretty nasty habits. Then there’s my most recent evening habit of putting my feet up beside me on the sofa. Tut!
“But surely it couldn’t be as easy as adjusting my posture?” I hear you say!
During my Initial Assessment with Tracey Butcher I was told that I had the worst case of stiffness of the mid back she had seen this year. That didn’t sound good! But with the combination of Tracey’s magic touch; doing the exercises I was taught; and following her advice about the equipment I should use at my desk, I have now gone migraine free…WOW!! (I only saw Tracey five times!)
I’m keen to avoid the migraines returning, so I am being very careful about my posture, and doing the daily exercises diligently. If during your next visit to The Body Junction you see me slouching… you have my permission to tell me off!
