Headaches and Migraines

Headaches have many causes. The types of headaches treated by a Registered Massage Therapist include:

Tension Headache: this most common headache is likely due to chemical changes triggering brain nerves and blood vessels

Migraine Headache: scientists don't exactly know why migraines occur, but they probably result from swelling in blood vessels and nerves that surround the brain

Cluster Headache: these are intense headaches that start around one eye, then spread to nearby areas of the face

Sinus Headache: due to inflammation, usually in the frontal and maxillary sinuses

A Registered Massage Therapist may help:

  • Ease pain
  • Decrease stress and anxiety
  • Promote relaxation
  • Decrease muscle tension
