Susan Antelis – Healed Chronic Migraines With Biofeedback
Susan Antelis – Healed Chronic Migraines With BiofeedbackSeptember 19th, 2017 by Cindy Perlin
Susan is a licensed mental health counselor and board-certified biofeedback practitioner with offices in New York and on Long Island. She experienced dramatic healing results from biofeedback that inspired her career direction. Susan had started having hormonally triggered classic migraines with aura monthly when she was 13. Migraine headaches had occurred in her family for generations, and Susan’s would last for days at a time. At that time, in 1966, medication was not used in children. Susan’s headaches worsened to the point that she was experiencing them three days a week. Her father was a doctor, and his partner told Susan that she’d have the headaches for the rest of her life. The headaches were so bad that Susan didn’t know if she’d be able to finish high school or go to college. At age 19, Susan consulted another doctor, who put her on medication for headaches. The medication left her wired and hung over for three days after a headache. By age 20, Susan was very depressed and almost suicidal. That’s when she decided to find a therapist. The therapist recommended that she try biofeedback. Susan was treated weekly with hand temperature biofeedback and EMG (muscle) biofeedback. Though she found it frustrating at first, after 10 months, Susan was almost headache free. She continued to carry her medication around with her for three years, but she never used it again. In 1980, Susan took her first professional biofeedback training course and bought her own equipment. Her migraines stopped completely in 1981. Susan started training her own two daughters in biofeedback when they were three years old. When they were 13, they started having migraines but were able to stop them with biofeedback.
