You normally don’t think “headache” when you think of the Battenkill Valley. After all, this is the kind of bucolic wonderland that chases headaches away. Still, if you suffer from headaches you should know that it’s now been proven that Biofeedback can reduce headache pain by up to 60%, according to John Arena, PhD a professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior at the Medical College of Georgia. And yes, the Battenkill Valley is host to Nu You, a certified biofeedback center just south of Salem on Route 22. This type of therapy is painless and actually kind of cool. It involves being hooked up to sensors that provide real-time readings of body processes like blood pressure and muscle tension. Not only does it detect areas of stress, but it helps relieve them by essentially reversing the process and targeting the stressed out areas of your body with tiny electric impulses. In other words, it’s good for what ails you, no matter what your particular ailment is. Try it. Your insurance provider may even cover the cost!
