Migraines??? OUCH!

If you are one of the unfortunate souls who suffer with migraine headaches there is help with massage therapy. Many reasons can cause migraines, and with a skilled massage therapist many times you can find temporary if not permanent relief with a series of massages.
Why a series? Usually the onset of migraines if from a buildup of tension, strain on neck muscles and chronic pain and tightness in the shoulders and occipital areas ( the ridge just under the base of the skull.) A deep and thorough release of these muscles and lots of stretching can open the channels for proper blood flow and relieve most, if not all, of the discomfort. It can take several sessions to completely loosen the area and gently get everything back to normal. With migraines you need to go gently but firmly so as not to induce a headache!
A great therapist will know exactly the right amount of pressure, with input from you if needed as well.
