Most of us have all experienced a headache at some point. Some of us even suffer from chronic headache pain. Headaches can be extremely frustrating and often feel unbearable to deal with. Your first thought may be to grab the nearest bottle of pain medication to ease those painful symptoms. Vancouver Massage Therapy for headaches can also be an effective way to treat tension pain and even that dreaded migraine.
Massage Therapy for Tension Headaches:
Massage therapy helps to promote circulation which can increase blood flow and be helpful in relieving headache pain. Massage therapy directed towards the neck and shoulders, may even assist in reducing the number of tension headaches you receive. Regular massage allows one to maintain a higher level of relaxation and stress relief which can reduce the chances of getting that tension headache in the first place. Trigger point therapy can also assist in decreasing headache pain.
Massage Therapy for Migraines:
A migraine can have a significant impact on people’s lives as well as their daily activities. Massage Therapy has been known to reduce the frequency of regular migraines. Receiving Vancouver Massage Therapy for headaches may also reduce the intensity of your migraine.
It is always recommended to stay hydrated and receive regular exercise to avoid headaches. Massage therapy may also be a valuable addition to reduce headache pain.
