Headaches are common, in fact, widespread. To get rid of this problem, you need to know the difference between a migraine and a tension headache. Stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, or a consistent stress pattern can cause tension headaches.
Migraine attacks can be excruciating and dangerous for both adults and children. Therefore, individuals need to comprehend the Ayurvedic treatment for headaches to resolve the issue internally.
However, the problem of a migraine is what causes migraine headaches, which can also cause nausea, stomach pain, and sensitivity to sound or light. Headaches are a common complaint among adults, children, and even today’s children.
When it comes to tension, headaches signify a body imbalance. These minds desensitizing waves of pain are most commonly attributed to stress and pressure.
Even a mild headache can cause disruptions in your daily activities, which is something that doesn’t always indicate a severe illness.

I took a seven days program here at Ayushakti, and it was excellent. I was given shirodhara, and it was perfect for relieving my old headache, which I was suffering from for a couple of months. After Shirodhara, I feel incredibly light. Headache reduced to more than 65% from what it was initially. The various other treatments in the program were very relaxing and rejuvenating. Even at times, I had swelling on my hands and feet. I was unable to move my limbs. Within the 4-5 days of the treatment itself, I got good results.
