For proper conduction of the study, three phases will be performed: Assessment phase: Each migraine patient in the intervention and control group will be interviewed individually before applying the planned program to collect socio-demographic data and clinical migraine evaluation using the clinical sheet of the clinic. Then base line measures of headache-related disability and migraine specific quality of life using migraine specific quality of life questionnaire before any intervention. Retrospective recording of 1 month past migraine attacks frequency will be recorded. This interview will take about 25-30 minutes. Implementation phase: - intervention group An intervention program will be implemented to the intervention group only after dividing them into small homogeneous groups. The program will be conducted in the clinic, it includes two parts educational and training part.

Encourage use of the headache dairy. 6. How to prepare migraine emergency tool kit. 7. Explanation and demonstration of progressive muscle relaxation and deep breathing training (20-30min). Information and skills will be demonstrated and applied in the session through power point presentation, educational brochures, video lessons and guided home-based practice. The information will be in a simple language, relevant to the disease process and management as well as evidence-based (guidelines for controlled trial in migraine, 2012). The practical part: Appropriate relaxation training Program - Relaxation training comprises deep breathing exercises and progressive muscle relaxation, to perform them daily and to keep a record of them. - Group meeting sessions for training will be held every week for the 1st 4 weeks . - Video programs will be used as relaxation facilitators. - Patient will try these exercises for the first time in front of the researcher. - Patients will be advised to perform them daily for 8 weeks to achieve 60 sessions and to keep a record of them. Follow up of the intervention group adherence to instructions will regularly be done weekly by Telephone for the remainder of the study between educational, reinforcement and final evaluation sessions. Participants who will return for reinforcement sessions will receive mild compensation for study participation. The control group The control group will be advised to be adherent to the prescribed medications only and try not to change the treatment plan during the study period. Evaluation phase: Evaluation of both groups will be done using headache diary and migraine specific quality of life questionnaires. After another 4 weeks, the two groups' participants will be reevaluated. Final evaluation will be done after 3 month from base line by the researcher using the same tools. •Statistical Analysis /Statistical Package:- -The data will be collected, revised, coded and entered to personal computer, Statistical analysis by the appropriate statistical tests will be done using (statistical package for social science) program version 20. ;
