Migraines are one of the most common complaints seen in doctor’s offices today. Migraines can be debilitating for the sufferer. Massage has shown great results in the relief of migraines and other headaches. Massage has been shown through research to reduce the intensity and frequency of migraines. The mayo clinic recommends migraine sufferers spend time each day doing something that causes muscle relaxation. Massage definitely plays a role in this.

Massage therapy offers specific pain relief for headaches and migraine sufferers. Clients that suffer from migraines report symptoms of pain, irritation, inability to concentrate, dizziness, and a general feeling of anxiety and depression. Recent research has shown how massage therapy can provide energetic relief from migraine and headache symptoms. The University Of Miami School Of Medicine conducted a study of migraine sufferers. The researchers divided their subjects into two groups. One group treated migraines with medication only; the other group received weekly massage therapy for one month. At the end of the month 60% of the group that received massage reported no migraines or headaches for the entire month!
