Learn more about each stage below.
A 90 minute assessment consultation with a comprehensive history, safety testing, physical examination and treatment. We give you an explanation of why you get headaches or migraines, and where they are coming from.
Block of 4
4 follow up sessions booked over a 2 week period with expert hands on treatment to start getting your headaches or migraines under control. At the end of these 4 sessions we expect you to have a positive change to your symptoms.
With your headaches or migraines coming under control we start to space your appointments out, while maintaining control over the physical factors causing your pain. Most people have 3-5 sessions in this stage of treatment.
