Biofeedback is based on an old relaxation technique called autogenic training, that I have found helpful together with other things (excercise, diet) for my migraines. I thought this book would give me additional helpful hints on how to get more in control of my migraines. Unfortunately that was not the case. The text for the biofeedback is not specific for migraines, it is a general text. What you do get is a bunch of stretching excercises for your neck, shoulders and jaw which you would be better of learning from a physiotherapist. And by the way muscle tension doesn't cause migraines, it is in some people vice versa so I guess those chapters are not a complete waste. I'm also very suspicious of any one method that claims it can cure migraines by itself, I don't believe in wonder drugs, holistic or otherwise.

If you buy this book, you will also have to buy two CDs from the author's website, which gets mentioned frequently. Alternatively you can tape the text of the CDs yourself, assuming you still own a tape recorder. Also, you will need a skin thermometer feedback unit. All in all an additional $65. The book is advertised as all you need to heal your migraines, but that is not true.

I found her method tedious and her tone often preachy, like you just have to think positive and things will be better. If I am in pain, I am in pain, and it won't go away by thinking "I remember to breathe and relax even when my body feels uncomfortable". If you can use the word "uncomfortable" in the context of migraines you have not understood what migraines are like, the sentence should be "I remember to breathe and relax even when my body is in excruciating pain".
As for the imagery, it was counterproductive for me. I really don't want to imagine any part of my body bathed in blood. I'm not squeamish, but I see the image before me and want to throw up.

This is not for me, I'm going to try to find a real person to teach me.

As a result of practicing the techniques described in Kelsie's book I have been able to manage my Migraine attack frequency from 4 to 5 per week down to 1 per week consistently. I even have some really good weeks where I go 10 days without a migraine at all. My only regret is that I wish I had access to this information many years ago as I could have eliminated many years (30 years) of suffering. No other treatments have provided me with the kind of relief that I have received from practicing the techniques illustrated in the Migraines Be Gone book.

As a side note, the techniques referenced include relaxation, visualization, affirmations, exercise and stretching, breath control, and temperature control to the extremities (hands and feet). When these techniques are mastered, the mind and body relax while the frequency and severity of migraines decrease. Personally, I also noticed that life started to become more enjoyable in general terms. Little things didn't stress me out as much and I started to take my time with things that I would normally just rush through. Most significant (other than less migraines) is that I feel far less overwhelmed and I feel that there is hope that I can control my migraines and that the migraines will not control me.

If you want results, then this book is a definite purchase.

I was searching the internet for an acupuncturist because after seeing three different physicians about my migraines they had all failed me. I wanted to learn what was causing my headaches, and how to stop them, and they just kept throwing more medicine at me. After reading Kelsie's book, I found out that the doctors who overprescribed migraine drugs for me were actually making my condition worse. I was skeptical at first, but for $20, I figured there was nothing to loose. After getting through step 4 of the 7 steps, I was practically headache free. Since then I have never taken a migraine prescription, and I have never had a headache bad enough to put me to bed. This book made me feel really empowered to help myself, instead of having to rely on doctors who were in too much of a hurry to listen to me. It has been about 2 years since I first purchased this book and the headaches are still under control. When I bought the book, I had been suffering from debiliating migraines for about 4 years, and the frequency had increased to about 15 headache days/ month. I am so grateful for Kelsie and her book, it truely changed my life.

I bought this book a year ago thinking to reduce the number and severity of my migraines which had increased to two or three a week after repeated doses of Maxalt and NSAID medications began triggering rebound headaches. My plan was interrupted by several surgery proceedures that were made more stressful by the presence of migrains and left me with persistent anxiety and difficulty sleeping. During my convalecence, I started doing the exercises in Kelsie's book and found immediate relief from the more intense anxiety and gradually, the migraines have come under control.
I find the techniques to be very sound - a valuable compliment to other mindfulness-based therapies.

Honestly I feel this book is mostly an advertisement for the author's website. Her website address appears at the bottom of each page (which in my opinion is just not done by serious authors) and she references the website throughout the book. There is a "taste" of very general useful information in the book but you really need to purchase items from her site (which are crazy expensive) to successfully do the work. I honestly feel a bit ripped off. I do think the program COULD work - but the book alone is not enough. Buyer beware - disappointing!
