Boise's Headache Massage Specialist
At Intense Tranquility Therapeutic Massage I specialize in many different problem areas in the musculature of the body. One of the most common and often debilitating are headaches! Did you know that more than 1-2 headaches a year is not "normal"? If you have headaches more often then being able to bring down the intensity and frequency of your headaches, through massage, could be a great source of relief.
Sara* has had constant headaches and migraines for eleven years, ever since her first child was born. She suffered with 8/10 headaches through out the day, brain fogginess due to the headaches, vertigo and migraines.
She came in to me for a routine massage. Her initial appointment consisted of working on the shoulders, neck, head, and face. Each of these areas were assessed through massage to find if they were tight and sore/painful. The assessment as well as the pre-massage questions helped to understand the cause of her headaches. Sara's target area for massage relief were the TMJ muscles and general relaxation of her shoulders and neck. Each successive massage has decreased the pain and length of the headaches, as well as her migraines. The Vertigo is less intense and her brain fogginess is gone.
This is an extreme example of headache relief through massage. Each client will present with different headache needs. Typically a 30-60 minute initial assessment session is needed. After which a treatment plan will be discussed with the client. Typically a client would come in for a 30-minute session once a week, for 2-3 weeks. Followed by 2-3-4 weeks in-between sessions. The goal is to teach the muscles to be in a relaxed state and reduce the frequency and pain of the headaches. Come in and receive headache relief through massage!
