The most common type of headache that adults experience is tension headaches. Do you feel a pressure in the forehead or on the top or sides of your head, a sudden massive headache popping out from nowhere. This could be a tension headache. It may start with something as simple as a clenched jaw, which then makes other muscles in the area stiff and creates tension.
Massage can help you get rid of the headache and regular massage sessions may well help in keeping it from coming back. There are even some self-massage techniques that you could find in doing some research on the internet.
Some of my clients have come in for a head and face massage after experiencing headaches for several days. They leave the massage session feeling better, with less tension. For some, the headaches go away during the session and for others the next day they text me to say that the headache is gone. That is one of the reasons I really enjoy providing massages. Being able to help and make others feel better is a great reward.
There are so many positive benefits of a massage. There are no doubts about this. After a massage session, you always feel lighter, happier, and more relaxed. Although it is at times difficult to find the time to make an appointment, keep in mind that massage is a great preventive care and it does have some immediate gratifying results.
Are there moments where everything annoys you, you lash out at people for no reason and everything and everyone gets on your nerves. You probably answered yes to this, as I think we all at some point feel in this manner. It does not feel good. Anyone who dares ask you a question at that moment risks getting his/her head bitten off. Well, if that is how you are feeling, you might need some self-care.
Massage does wonders for stress relief, and is great at lowering the cortisol (stress hormones). All those things that make you react and worsen your mood are shut off during the session of massage. You will little by little relax, slow down, enjoy the relaxing music, feel the warmth of the massage and then let go of the tension, and all of a sudden the crankiness disappears. Not only does your body benefit from the massage by relaxing tense muscles but it also helps the mind destress from your hectic daily life. The massage has a dual purpose. Not only will you feel better afterwards, more relaxed, and happier but also will the people around you benefit from your change of mood and be pleased to see that you are back to your sunny self.
