KAYLEIGH FUGL -
OSTEOPATH & CO-WORKER
Hello, my name is Kayleigh, I am one of the Osteopaths at The Perrymount Clinic in Haywards Heath and I am here to help women with migraines to be pain free and live their lives. I work with daith.co.uk on a regular basis as referring people each way is an important part of what we do.
I completed my degree to be an Osteopath after 4 years of training at Kingston. And I am also a qualified cranial osteopath.
My background is in the beauty and massage industry where I have gained over 12 years of experience. After my qualification in beauty and massage therapy, I worked on cruise liners as a deep tissue massage therapist and then after this I have worked in various spas and clinics around Sussex and Surrey including the award winning spa, Alexander House.
I love working at The Perrymount Clinic where I provide Osteopathy, Cranial osteopathy, and Massage.
Migraines can be caused by neck and shoulder tension due to posture related changes.
Raised and rounded forward shoulders
Forward head carriage
Heavy bust area
Upper back in a flexed position leading to a dowager's hump
Jaw ache by being stretched/ pushed forward
As an osteopath we look at correcting these posture changes to alleviate pressure off the migraine. These posture changes can lead to straining the neck and shoulders muscles, cause restrictions in movement and compress the vagus nerve creating an over stimulation which can also be triggered by stress and reduce blood flow to the brain.
