Continuing on with my blog series on common aliments that Massage or Reflexology can help with is H for Headache.
Headaches like a lot of common aliments that we have touched on in this series can be caused by a number of different reasons and after the initial consultation the therapist can approach the massage differently depending on the cause of the headache. The most common cause of headache is normally stress related but they also may be caused by sinus infection, colds or flus or be menstrual related.
Indian Head Massages is an excellent massage for anyone suffering with headache’s as the therapist will be working on the clients, neck, shoulders, face and scalp in the treatment as this is where a lot of the stress or tension may be coming from.
In a Indian Head Massage treatment, the client will be sitting up straight and the therapist will use a mixture of gentle and deeper pressured movements to help release any tensions, working around the face and through the clients hair also.
