How Massage Can Help Melt Away Migraines and Headaches

person getting a back massageIt’s no surprise so many people are stressed these days. Combine that stress with not getting enough sleep and exercise, and a person’s “bucket” can overflow. When that happens, headaches and migraines can result.

Many people are looking for natural alternatives to medication for their migraines. Massage therapy can help relieve headaches while avoiding the side effects that often accompany prescription and over-the-counter headache medications.

What Are Some Benefits of Massage?

Because many tension headaches and migraines are accompanied by neck pain, those who suffer from those conditions find that hands-on bodywork, such as massage, offers relief from headache pain and associated symptoms. Massage therapy has numerous benefits for migraine sufferers:

  • Relaxes tense muscles
  • Relieves muscle spasms
  • Improves blood flow
  • Promotes relaxation

Tame That Tension

A targeted therapeutic massage at Knewtson Health Group could help release fascia tension, which can help relieve your migraines. Fascia is the covering around all of our muscles, and that can be tense. Massage can also increase lymphatic drainage, which goes hand in hand with releasing toxins.

Many people carry a lot of tension in the upper parts of their neck, or even the front parts of their neck. Massage can address the upper neck and cranial muscles to relieve migraines.

Reduce Anxiety & Stress

Massage therapy not only helps the muscles relax, but also effectively reduces anxiety and mental stress that can cause or worsen headaches. Regular, ongoing massage therapy could help prevent headaches by helping reduce stress and muscle tension that can trigger headache or migraine pain.
