Ask the Pro's to know if a masage can help Headaches!

Q: Recently I have been getting a lot of headaches. I have had massage therapy for my neck and shoulder tension but I have never had headaches before. Is massage something that can relieve my headache pain? 

A: Yes, massage therapy is definitely helpful for regular tension related headaches. If you are experiencing severe pain, it always a good idea to head to your doctor first so they can rule out any other problems. Tension of the shoulders, neck, head or jaw can often cause tension headaches and Massage Therapy is a great option for treatment. Massage therapy can relieve muscle tension and relax your nervous system, which decreases stress and headache symptoms, giving your body a whole feeling of relaxation.
