Woodpeckers slam a beak against the trunk of a tree 20 times per second and suffer no illness. Although it would seem like an activity that would cause headaches, jaw aches, and serious neck & brain injuries.

I think you can become a woodpecker. Of course, with the right pain management. We will guide you though.

Just like Koala has to sleep all day long to digest Eucalyptus, you may intake too much of bad chemicals into your body, eventually, causing headaches.

Dr. Ryan Song's Take

"I believe in the power of self-healing. I'd love to help you by providing all the knowledge, tools & equipment that you need. So, you can treat yourself!"

Woodpeckers are most likely...

  • You are a health conscious person with an active interest in your well-being. You have potential to be 100% headache-free.

  • You have the lingering injuries from whiplash (motor vehicle accidents), sports, work and poor posture.

  • You get headaches from time to time, but manageable with no medications.

  • You are looking for a proactive care for headache & other related ailments. You may be trying multiple gadgets and gizmos for relaxation.

Common pain patterns...

In most cases, headaches for Woodpeckers are from the long-term injuries - lingering pain that's never been resolved in a timely manner. So we will help you in a few ways:

  • Educate you about the trigger points & referred pain
  • How to restore the muscle functions

You are most likely to experience one of the following headache patterns, illustrated below.

These are called a Trigger Point (TrP) - a hyperirritable spot, a palpable nodule in the taut bands. (shown as 'X' in the diagram) The trigger points may feel especially painful when touched, and the pain may radiate beyond the immediate area. (shown as 'Red Dots' in the diagram)


Do you grind teeth at night? Or sloutching posture? Any whiplash injuries?

Trapezius Muscles

Do you have acute or chronic injuries? From work, sports, Motor vehicle accidents?

SCM Muscles #1

Do you stare at the screens for a long period of time? Or poor sitting posture at the desk?

SCM Muscles #2

Dizziness, a fever, or vomiting? you must see a doctor as it may develop into something serious.

Simple. You have pain in the particular muscles? You will have headaches just like red dots. Headaches worsen with activity of those muscles, usually worse in the afternoon (because your muscles become tired.)

So to treat it, you will have to reverse-engineer it. Massage the heck out of all the 'X'. Once the tension releases, you will experience less or no pain in the neck & headaches with the increase in range of motion.

Woodpeckers usually struggle with...

  • Simply put, the Woodpeckers' headaches are most likely from the nagging injury & poor posture (muscular problems) or aging (disc or spine problems). You may notice the headaches since a certain event:

    - MVA (motor vehicle accident)

    - Waking up with pain and decrease in range of motion in the neck

    - Work related injuries: computer, heavy-lifting etc

    - Pain from work: repetitive movements

    - Poor posture and muscle imbalance

    - Smartphones (tech neck)

    - Work from home (due to non-ergonomic work stations)

All headaches types:
