Massage has also been found to reduce the frequency and severity of migraines. Research at The Touch Institute of the University of Miami School of Medicine found that massage therapy decreased the occurrence of headaches, sleep disturbances and distress symptoms while increasing serotonin levels in adults with migraine headaches.
Though massage is known to help with these symptoms, it can also be used as a preventative measure, decreasing the likelihood of headaches or migraines or the severity of them.
Migraines and other types of headaches are one of the most common complaints seen in the doctor's office today. The Mayo Clinic recommends that patients with migraines spend at least a half-hour each day doing something either relaxing or that involves the relaxation of muscles. Self-massage is a great way to do that. If you are finding it awkward or don’t have enough strength in your fingers and hands – most people don’t, - don’t stress, as there is JOYA!
