Healing Massage Therapy for Headaches

Your Headache Assessment

There are many different causes for headaches as well as many different types of headaches.

First an initial overall assessment is done of your head pain.

This will lead to a decision of whether massage therapy will help relieve your headaches. In some cases, it may be necessary to err to the side of caution and refer you to another health care professional.

If you are a good candidate for headache relief from massage therapy, a variety of techniques will be used to relieve your pain.

Learn More About Headaches

In most cases, I use methods to release specific muscles. Many headaches stem from the “suboccipitals.”

These muscles that sit at the base of the cranium cause a large percentage of headaches.

When the suboccipitals are tight, they may affect blood vessels which are near nerves associated with protective coverings of the brain.

This process causes headaches, even some migraines.

I use Cranial Base Release, Neuromuscular Therapy and Trigger Point Therapy to help relieve your headache.

These techniques will relax your subocciptals, as well as other muscles in your neck and back.

There are also cases in which I bring attention to the feet to help relieve headaches.

This is something which has been done for centuries in eastern traditions. Prices and times for headache and whiplash treatments will vary.

Testimonials

Gwen S. -formerly of New England



"Don't waste your money looking for a better massage! I have had massages from Hawaii to London and Toronto to Costa Rica and Joe is absolutely the best if you are looking for real pain relief. He knows anatomy and movement and his willingness to educate me on the details of every one of my problem areas and how to take care of myself to reduce pain recurrence is the kind of stuff you usually only get from physical therapists! I genuinely can't say enough good about this practice if you really need help and can appreciate quality stretching  and muscle work, it is your loss if you don't at least give him a try."
