Massage therapy is one of the oldest remedies and studies show that massage can be an effective way to not only relieve migraines but help prevent them too. Regular professional therapeutic massage boosts blood flow and eases muscle tension in the neck, jaw and shoulders which can be the cause of headaches and migraines. It can help to improve pain and tension as well as the duration, intensity and frequency of the migraine.
Did you know…a study found that even just a 30-minute massage shows notable physical and psychological improvements?
A massage is a fantastic way to relax and destress which can be another cause of headaches and migraines. Taking some time for some self-care in the form of an hour of massage therapy can be excellent for body and mind.
