About Jyrki

Jyrki Mäkelä

I’ve been working in healthcare since 1995 and I have helped thousands of people suffering from migraine and Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). As a migraineur myself I personally understand the struggles, troubles and impact of this disease and I’ve been using my body and mind as a test tool since 1995. I have made tons of my own research and tests since -95 e.g.

  • Carried out 7,600 field tests to date about understanding migraine behavior and its impact to body and mind.
  • Since 1995 I’ve done approximately 30 000 treatments and given my advices how people can carry out safe, effective, and smooth self-care.
I’m 44 years old and I was born in a small island in Eastern Finland, where my childhood years were filled with sports and farm life. I discovered the power of cold therapy and mental training while I was still in comprehensive school. At the age of 14 I decided to study sports massage instead of becoming a professional soldier and discovered my biggest passion in life when I started my studies: helping people suffering from pain.

irony of life is that I began to suffer from migraines and also tension headaches during my studies. Then two years after my graduation, I broke one of my lumbago spine’s vertebrae. It ended my promising powerlifting career and changed the course of my life. I chose to shun the consuming large doses of medication and set about rehabilitating myself my own way. One of the outcomes was testing, analyzing and ultimately finding the best means of treating migraines. My own versatile pain background has helped me a lot as a migraine specialist to understand the impact of migraine what it has to people’s lives.

As a result, after many years of work, in 2010 I was able to bring to market my first manual migraine care method as an official migraine treatment and In spring 2014, I brought more advanced care method, Migraine Rapid® to the market. Today alongside of my migraine care work I’m actively testing and developing safe, effective and natural ways to help people suffering from sleeping problems and PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder).
