Chronic migraine impacts over 36 million people in the United States, according to the American Migraine Foundation, yet only 1 in 3 individual discuss their ongoing migraines with a medical professional. While various treatment options exist, from prescription medication to biofeedback, few natural migraine relief methods are available. Much fewer migraine relief treatments are easy to use while traveling or to access without a medical professional. Posture Prep Wellness Tool is an easy-to-use, ergonomically shaped, tool that fits easily in a purse or bag when traveling and provides natural migraine relief.
Get To Know What The Fascia is:
The fascia is a tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and organs in the human body. It is flexible and provides a supportive web for the body. If an injury occurs, the fascia absorbs the trauma and can become less flexible. This creates stress and tension and can decrease elasticity in the body. If tension is a source of migraines, improving the flexibility of the fascia and releasing tension can help provide natural migraine relief.
What exactly is the Posture Prep Wellness Tool?
The Posture Prep Wellness Tool is a small, affordable, hand-size tool that assists in myofascial release. Dr. Pat Bona, a chiropractor who uses a comprehensive approach to improve well being and restore biomechanics in her patients, designed Posture Prep. It can be used at home or on the road to massage tissues under the skin and reduce tension in the fascia. It can also release scar tissue from previous injuries, which relaxes muscles, improves circulation and can increase range of motion. Posture Prep should be used as a natural treatment option on a regular basis as part of a wellness program. It will help prevent migraines or even reduce symptoms when you are suffering from one.
How does it work?
As a migraine is coming on, Posture Prep can be used to begin a cross fiber massage technique on trouble spots including: head, sinuses, neck, shoulders, chest and arms. Falling asleep while in the midst of a migraine or bad headache is impossible and cross fiber massage can help to release tension, therefore leading to relaxation and sleep. An added benefit is that unlike some other devices meant to support the fascia, Posture Prep can be used over clothing which makes it ideal for airports, meetings or other public areas where a migraine can begin to build.
