What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy is one of the oldest remedies and studies show that massage can be an effective way to not only relieve migraines but can also 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 mind, body, and spirit.
What causes migraines?
Migraines regularly affect around one in every five women in the UK. Struggling with this common health condition is often caused by stress. Stress is one of the most common causes of headache tension and migraines. A vicious cycle of stressing over being in pain and discomfort due to constant migraines can further worsen the problem. It’s important to relax, unwind and stay calm to have a better chance of relieving your migraine problems.
