Migraine Triggers: How to Cure the Pain Migraine Triggers
You have many years of wear and tear and your body. Popping that pain pill may give you immediate relief. It will not solve the problem long-term. Continuous use of pain pills just prolongs the underlying issue. For those times your migraine prevention plan doesn’t seem to be working or you forget to follow it and need a quick cure, massage is a very reliable solution.
A huge contributor of migraines is constricted blood flow to your brain. Releasing the tight, knotted, and congested muscles in the neck and along the occipital ridge of the skull will dissolve the excessive pressure. Releasing the full supply of blood to your head oxygenates and nourishes your brain.
What happens when you follow your migraine prevention plan meticulously and you still get a splitting headache? There could be an entirely different cause for the condition. You may be dealing with something on an unconscious level mentally, emotionally or spiritually. My massage technique includes emotional bodywork, NLP, and hypnotherapy to detect and release these hidden causes of migraines.
