Subjects for the workshop


In order to widen a holistic view on causes and connections in headache and migraine, we look at subjects such as:

  • Muscular tensions, functional muscle chains
  • The body’s fascia system and connections to the brains supportive tissue
  • Influences from the jaw and temporo-mandibular joint
  • Importance of nutrition and blood sugar
  • Breathing and acid-alkaline balance, according to the Russian Buteyko-method
  • Reflexes for brain structures, nerves and muscles.

Headache is the most common symptom in adults. 20% of the adult population have suffered from headaches within the past two weeks.

In this workshop your knowledge of headache and migraine will be refreshed and deepened. You will learn to look at headache and migraine from new angles. You will acquire new techniques for the immediate symptomatic treatment and learn theories and methods to deal with the deeper layers of causal connections.


We take a look at the physiological processes: What is hurting when you have a headache? How does breathing affect migraine? Pain is actually formed in the brain; hear about new theories in pain research.
We review the conventional conceptions and treatment of these problems and look at different medications and not the least over-medication, which can be a cause of both headache and migraine!

For treatment we include techniques from classical reflexology, nerve reflexology, special reflex points and relaxation techniques.

The Treatment schemes below shows all the techniques we teach in the workshop. 

In Touchpoint’s continuing education classes we primarily present techniques from classical and nerve reflexology, and a few selected body techniques. 

Towards the end of the course, we discuss the treatment schemes, which, built on our clinical experiences, is meant as an inspirational tool and a way to remember the new techniques.
