Headaches and Remedial Massage

Headaches and remedial massage

The most common headaches are vascular and muscle tension headaches.

The presence of throbbing or pounding pain is often the result of swelling and constricting blood vessels.

With muscle tension headaches, it is common to find a dull, constant ache due to the tense muscles.

The use of drugs is not always effective and can cause irritating side effects and sometime serious ones if not used correctly.

A fantastic and effective solution for headaches is remedial massage. It relieves pain by relaxing the tense muscles, causing them to place less pressure on the nerves and blood vessels that supply them. The German magazine “Vital”, after a survey conducted among experts of the health sector, came to the conclusion that remedial massage therapy can be more effective than analgesics or pain relieving medication.

 

Massage for headache relief

A fantastic and effective solution for headaches is remedial massage.

 

Remedial massage, used in conjunction with stretching and targeted exercises, minimizes the discomfort caused by headaches without side effects.

Scientists argue that trigger points massage – a technique in which localized finger pressure is done on the painful area on the body – could bring important benefits to people who suffer from headaches and migraines. A self-trigger points massage can be taught for use when the patient is not able to get to the clinic for a massage appointment.

To optimize your massage treatment, it is important to drink a glass of water before your massage session and keep your body hydrated for 24 hours immediately after the treatment. Water helps flush out the toxins that are released during your massage.
