Biofeedback has been shown to be very effective for migraine headaches. Dr. Deborah Stokes at The Better Brain Center in Alexandria, VA, published a research study on neurofeedback for migraines in the medical journal Behavioral and Brain Functions in Feb 2010. Their findings were that 70% of clients experienced at least a 50% reduction in the frequency of their headaches and that results appear to be lasting.
Dr Stokes summarizes: “Stress is often a big trigger for migraine sufferers. Neurofeedback (also known as Neurotherapy, EEG biofeedback or Neurobiofeedback) is showing promise as a non-invasive and painless method to relieve the stress reactivity and resulting rebound into migraine headache pain. With neurofeedback, the brain learns to function with better self-control and stability through increased self regulation. With better regulation, stress decreases and migraines lessen or disappear.”
