About the Author of Calming the Headache Storm

The Calming the Headache Storm book and companion blog are offered to you to give you medication-free techniques to quickly reduce your migraine headache pain. I am a physical therapist who is passionate about helping people relieve their suffering. Many people who have been afflicted with headaches for years, even decades, can leave our clinic with a path forward with reduced headaches. I see many people who could have been spared years of misery if they just had knowledge of some conservative methods of treatment, which most people don’t even know exist.

"I've been suffering from headaches for years. The relief that I have received from these treatments have made me a happy woman. Why didn't someone tell me about this before?" Marie, Minnesota

"The pain was unbearable. Learning those acupressure points has been a godsend." Jane, Wisconsin

"Thank you so much for helping me manage (and get rid of!) my migraines. I haven't felt this good in years - I only wish I had gone to you sooner!" Ashley, Wisconsin

"Thank you so much for finding the treatment for me. I haven't had one migraine since my last visit, and I very rarely have even a headache." Rita, Minnesota
