Headache and Migraine Relief

Headaches and migraines can be very debilitating, causing a great deal of interruption and anxiety in life impacting work, social events or school when the symptoms become unbearable. There are no concrete causes for them, but many people know their "triggers". For some it is smells, sudden bright lights or noise, food sensitivities, stress, dehydration or hormonal changes. 

Some of the symptoms can include:

  • Extreme neck or head pain

  • Sensitivity to light and sound

  • Visual disturbances

  • Nausea

  • Decreased range of motion

  • Depression

  • Mood changes

  • Muscle tension

  • Auras

Massage therapy is a great way to help relieve symptoms and reduce the duration and frequency of headaches and migraines. Studies have shown that regular schedules of massage therapy treatments can decrease the frequency and intensity of headaches and migraines. As well, proper stretching techniques, water and food intake and exercise can all help to diminish headaches and migraines.
