What is a Headache?

Headaches and migraines are - at the root - a symptom of the body reaching its maximum capacity to bear stress. Tense muscles pulling on the skull, blood pressure, blood sugar levels, hunger, dehydration, sleep quality and regularity, stress levels, hormone levels, sickness, immunity, and a combination of factors can create short-term or long-term headaches.

But combining enough factors or lowering the body’s ability to cope with stress will lead to a variety of symptoms - including headaches and migraines.

If you get chronic headaches or migraines, you understand that headaches and migraines can be complicated. How can massage therapy help?
