Massage is a great way to manage stress and relieve tension – two of the main causes of migraine headaches. Research has found that massage therapy decreased the occurrence of headaches, sleep disturbances and distress symptoms while increasing serotonin levels in adults with migraine headaches.
Migraines and other types of headaches are one of the most common complaints seen in the doctor’s office today. The Mayo Clinic recommends that patients with migraines spend at least a half-hour each day doing something either relaxing or that involves the relaxation of muscles. This is particularly helpful for managing migraines and severe headaches.
