Vancouver Massage Therapy Article of the Week: Massage Therapy for Headaches
Headaches come in 3 common categories: Tension headaches, often related to neck tension; Sometimes very painful migraines headaches; and sinus headaches. Massage therapy can help, and a treatment approach can be focused based on the type of headache presenting. A craniosacral, osteopathic, or muscular focused massage focused on the cranial base, and musculature and connective tissue layers of the neck can often help with tension headaches. Some migraines can be alleviated by craniosacral therapy. Sinus headaches can be sometimes alleviated with craniosacral therapy techniques focused on the cranial base and frontal sinus areas to promote drainage.
Many Vancouver RMT’s and practitioners at Broadway Wellness are able to focus their treatment approaches to help alleviate different types of headaches as they present.
