"Hello, September! We hope you're well.
As the lazy days of August dwindle away, the fall months are drawing closer. And while it's sad to say goodbye to summertime living, the month of September offers the perfect intermediary between the end of the summer and the changes that come with autumn. It's a transition time for your mind, body and wardrobe.
So, if you're feeling down about the end of the Summer, prepare for the new season with a great fresh start ... perhaps a seasonal acupuncture treatment with Selena?
See how Team Bridgeham can help you!

MIGRAINE AWARENESS WEEK
There's no cure for migraines, but we have a number of treatments available to help reduce the symptoms.
Osteopathy - Did you know that quite often it is actually your neck that may well be the primary cause of your migraines, even if your neck is pain-free?
Osteopathy targets and releases blockages and tension that can trigger migraines. It improves the circulation of blood and fluids in the lymphatic system, releases tension in the muscle joints and nerves, and restores basic function and mobility.
Acupuncture - Migraines are usually treated using the wood element in Chinese medicine- the wood element relates to the liver and the gallbladder meridians (lines of energy on the body) so the points used tend (for many people) to be focused on those lines of energy.
The wood element is said to manifest in the eyes - and gallbladder and liver meridians are used to treat the eyes where often, the pre-migraine aura can manifest. Migraines are almost always treatable with acupuncture.
Massage - Different types of massages can help treat migraines. Depending on the type of migraine and which side of the head you have pain, pressure can be applied to various body parts to relieve stress and anxiety.
Reflexology, Sports Massage, Lymphatic Massage, and Meridian Massage, can all help in keeping tension and muscle aches at bay, keeping your body and mind relaxed, and helping improve your sleep.
Hypnotherapy - Migraines are thought to be caused by abnormal brain activity affecting nerve signals, chemicals, and blood vessels temporarily in the brain.
Hypnotherapy encourages the body to relax and heal itself by helping the area to relax allowing blood flow to increase.
Pranic Healing - Energy medicine called Pranic Healing is very effective in treating headache pain.
Pranic Healing is an energy bodywork system that facilitates the movement of energy and fluids that may be stagnant in your head, causing your headache presentation. It's a non-touch and non-medicine therapy. It is founded on the science of energy body and chakras.
