If I don't like to be touched, will I hate getting a massage?

You have to try to find out. Not all massage therapy is relaxing massage, which feels great to most people. If you do not like to be touched, you might try a different type of massage like cupping or myofascial release. Although you will still be touched, the effect is more therapeutic and less soothing and comforting. There are other types of massage to research like thai massage (stretching), sports massage (stretching and compression) and ashiatsu (practitioner uses feet to massage you). Although it can be confusing to know how massage therapies differ, it is great that there are so many options. There is a type of bodywork for everyone!

Can massage therapy help get rid of my headaches?

Yes, massage therapy can help with chronic headaches. Studies have shown that regular massage therapy can contribute to lessening the severity and duration of headaches. Having chronic headaches creates a cycle that can be difficult to break. The pain can contribute to tension and stress throughout the body, which can then lead to more headaches. You should always consult a doctor regarding chronic headaches to make sure there is not a serious health issue. I have clients with chronic headaches that seek massage therapy on a regular basis because it has helped. Interestingly enough, I have found that full body massage usually presents better results than just target work on the head, neck, and shoulders. Everything is connected and addressing restrictions in other areas of the body often helps with neck and shoulder tension.
