The intense throbbing and pressure caused by migraine headaches can be unbearable and seemingly unending. Sometimes the pain can last for hours and, in very extreme cases, can cause extreme sensitivity to light and sound, nausea and vomiting. While some patients rely heavily on medication to treat the suffering caused by migraines, massage therapy is a holistic practice that can immediately relieve pain and help manage it over time.
Treating Migraines with Massage
Due to the more extreme symptoms that often accompany a migraine, most clients usually cannot tolerate massage on or near their heads. However, using gentle yet effective techniques like myofascial release and reflexology on other areas of the body, Suzanne relaxes the head and shoulder areas so they are able to tolerate massage, thereby releasing the intense pressure of a migraine. Regular massage sessions also help reduce the occurrence of migraines.
