What Causes Headaches?

If you suffer from headaches, one of the first questions you might ask is why you continue to have head pain. While the question is straightforward, the answer is much more complex. Headaches can result from any number of issues due to the complexity of the eyes, brain and neck. Physical issues like poor eyesight, muscle tightness, injuries or nerve damage can cause headaches, but headaches can also be brought on by stress or anxiety.

How Does Massage Therapy Relieve Chronic Headache Pain?

Massage therapy can help you find headache relief no matter what the cause of the ailment. While the therapy will differ based on the client’s needs, massages can offer many benefits depending on which techniques are used. Since massages promote relaxation, they can ease issues with stress and lead to instant relief. For physical issues like muscle tightness, massage therapy can help alleviate pain by addressing the root cause of the issue.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

People have tried numerous methods to get rid of headache pain, with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, when most people get a headache their first thought is to grab an over the counter pain medication. While there is nothing wrong with taking medication for headaches, it only addresses a symptom and doesn’t take on the problem. When you elect to treat headaches with massage therapy, you give yourself a better chance at lasting relief because the goal of therapy is to provide relief both in the short term and in the long run.

How can I get started with massage therapy?

When I begin working with new clients, communication is key. It’s my goal to determine what their level of pain is and make a plan to address their unique needs. Once we are on the same page, we can begin therapy with the goal of lasting relief from headache pain.
