How can our treatment help with headaches/migraines?
Massage therapy can be an effective form of treatment for headaches/migraines as the therapist works on the specific triggers, patterns, and reactions that cause these annoyances. Our therapists have studied in great detail muscle and connective tissue dysfunction and how they can cause conditions such as headaches and migraines.
People who suffer from chronic headaches/migraines may still be suffering (without their knowledge) from a previous trauma to the body. Receiving treatment also helps to release serotonin, a natural painkiller that occurs in the body and when released helps with the symptoms of headaches.
