Can massage help migraine headaches?
Massage can be quite helpful for people with physician-diagnosed migraine headaches. A person with a severe headache that has not been diagnosed by a physician as migraine needs to see a physician, not a massage therapist.
It is challenging to treat someone during the middle of a severe headache, but it is possible to provide some relief. It is better to seek massage treatment between migraine headaches. At the Massage Therapy & Wellness Center, we have a lot of success easing the severity, duration and frequency of migraine headaches. We often find that one massage is enough to know if our treatment approach will be useful to you in dealing with these difficult headaches.
