Other symptoms associated with headache are as follow: neck pain; muscle tenderness over the joints in the neck; shoulder/arm pain on the same side of the headache; weakness; and possible dizziness, nausea, and lightheadedness. Headache and its associated symptoms are typically the result of stiff joints in the neck; soft tissue tightness and/or trigger points; and, possibly nerve irritation. Physical therapy is commonly prescribed for individuals who experience a headache. Physical therapist will complete a comprehensive musculo-skeletal exam to determine which structures are contributing to the symptoms.

Herbal Medicine

FOOD IS MEDICINE.

Written records of the use of herbal medicine date back to more than 5,000 years ago. Medicinal herbs have their own powerful properties and are being used to treat a number of health concerns and conditions. Herbs are a safer means of treatment than conventional medications which is why so many people are choosing to go back to this traditional idea of medicine.

Do not take chemical pills every day for cutting your pain.

Headache is not an aspirin deficiency.

Now, heal yourself with herbal medicine.

Our certified herbalist prescribes the best medical grade herbal concoctions and herbal medicine of the highest quality (KFDA approved in GMP grade facility).


doTerra essential oil therapy

As you may already know, severe head pain isn’t just a nuisance: it can put you out of commission all day long (or even longer when dealing with long-term migraines). Maybe Tylenol isn’t cutting it. Or maybe you would prefer a more ideal way to find relief.
Either way, consider a natural remedy like essential oils to relieve that pain in the brain. 
Some people react to one particular oil differently from another person. Therefore, it’s good to have several options to see what works best for you. Moreover, essential oils are like a lot of things in that you can build a tolerance. And too much tolerance, means a loss of efficacy. This is why you should switch up your oils from time to time. We use the best quality doTERRA single essential oils and blends for migraines, tension headaches, and mild head pain.

Our alternative treatments will unlock your body’s healing potential.
