Massage Therapy & Stress, Headaches & Fibromyalgia

Massage Therapy and Stress

Massage can help to reduce the sympathetic nervous system firing (i.e. the system responsible for the "fight or flight" response.), and to create an overall sense of well-being. Many people find that having one hour to themselves in which they can completely relax, leaves them feeling rejuvenated and much more at ease.

Massage Therapy and Headaches and Migraines

Trigger Points in the neck and shoulder muscles are often the source of chronic tension headaches and migraines. Regular massage therapy can act to prevent headaches by maintaining muscle metabolic balance, and improving tissue health by means of increased blood circulation.

 

Massage Therapy and Fibromyalgia

Massage therapy is one of the most beneficial treatments for fibromyalgia because it reduces pain, swelling and stiffness, deceases stress and anxiety, and improves sleep. Many of these conditions are associated with Fibromyalgia. If treatments are received regularly, massage is a great preventative treatment.

Other Natural Treatments for Stress, Headaches & Fibromyalgia

Acupuncture:  Acupuncture provides safe, effective pain relief and promotes healing.  Most people leave the table either feeling more energized or more relaxed after an acupuncture treatment.

Herbal Medicine:  Herbs can be used to safely reduce pain and inflammation in headaches, migraines and fibromyalgia.

Nutrition:  Foods either suppress or increase inflammation.  Proper diet helps the body heal, reduces physical stress on your system, helps muscles relax and reduces inflammation.

Chiropractic Care: Headaches, migraines and fibromyalgia can all be caused by or made worse by poor alignment of the spine.  Correcting misalignment can allow tense muscles to relax.
