What are Migraines?
Migraines. Some say “Oh, it’s just a headache.” But to those that get migraines, it’s so much more than that. So what exactly are migraines?
Migraines are a recurring type of headache. They are characterized by severe pain that is throbbing or pulsing. They are often accompanied by other symptoms, most often debilitating in nature. For example: nausea, weakness, difficulting speaking, numbness and sensitivity to light and sound.
How long do Migraines last?
The duration of a migraine can vary from person to person. Most often an attack can last anywhere from four to seventy two hours. The symptoms may vary throughout the duration of a migraine attack.
While experiencing a migraine a person can go through four different phases, although it is possible to skin one or more of these phases. The four phases include:
- Prodrome - this is known as the “pre-headache.” Symptoms that are unique to the prodrome phase of migraine can include yawning, cravings for specific foods, and frequent urination.
- Aura - this second phase of a migraine attack typically occurs before the head pain. Approx. 25-30% of migraine sufferers experience a migraine accompanied by either a visual aura or a sensory aura.
- Headache - this phase is primarily the intense pain phase. Throbbing, pulsating pain, light and sound sensitivity, pain on one side of the head, and nausea or vomiting.
- Postdrome - the last phase of a migraine is the one most commonly referred to as the migraine hangover. Leaving sufferers feeling wrung out, absolutely exhausted, achy, difficulty concentrating and scalp sensitivity.

Aromatherapy is an ancient art and science of applying essential oils to the body to promote health and harmony of the mind, body, and spirit
The inhalation of essentials oils stimulates the brain’s limbic system, which is involved in the formation of long-term memory, and is closely associated with the olfactory structures that have to do with the sense of smell. As a result, the brain releases chemicals, causing you to feel better. Performing specific pressure point massage in conjunction with aromatherapy may result in relaxation and have a calming effect.
