It takes lots of practis. And everyone who does this does it differantly.
It took me two years to prefect my way of staying calm and focus on anything but the pain.
Im in no way saying that this makes it all go away. It is just a way to stop a bad situation from getting worse.
I was lucky enough to have a roommate at the time that was into all of that and she helped me learn how to do it. We even practised while i was not having headaches. Its all in taking control over you. ITS VERY HARD TO DO. BUT IF YOU CAN FIND A WAY ITS A LIFE SAVER.
Before i started doing this the hedaches would take me over. Now im able to change the way i react to the pain.
Beleave it or not by staying calm ( as you can ) the sevarity of the headaches for me is cut a leval or two. Especally the left over headaches after the atack.
I undrstand your sceptisim. But, you will never know unless you give it a try. ( like with anyting else )
PFD to all
