Migraines & Headache massage therapy

Headaches and migraines

Tension headaches: Tight muscles in the shoulders, neck and jaw often contribute to the pain of tension headaches. Massage therapy treatment focused on releasing muscles and trigger points can relieve and prevent this type of head pain.

Sinus headaches: Congestion from colds and allergies can bring on a nagging sinus headache. A combination of lymphatic drainage, craniosacral therapy and light cupping reduces the build-up of fluid that creates discomfort associated with sinus headaches.

Migraine headaches: Massage therapy addresses the throbbing pain and nausea associated with migraine headaches. A variety of techniques are used to reduce muscle tension and alleviate tightness in intra-cranial membranes resulting in pain reduction.

Focus Massage Therapy treats headaches using a range of techniques to provide pain relief and prevent headache reoccurence.
