Stress-induced headaches have become more prevalent amongst the Canadian population, and our Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) in Richmond Hill is ready to help you combat the painful symptoms of your migraines. 

Our registered Yonge street physiotherapists will conduct a comprehensive assessment to set you up for success. Additionally, we will examine the trigger points that may be the cause of your headaches and work together with your body to increase blood flow to those problematic areas.

Any type of pain that occurs within your brain can be referred to as a ‘headache’. While most headaches will resolve by themselves without any medical intervention, severe migraines must be addressed immediately as they can hinder an individual’s daily lifestyle. Whether you have experienced tension headaches because you have been feeling overwhelmed at work or are going through numerous lifestyle changes, our professional team at Premier Care Physiotherapy will offer you an expert approach to alleviating your headaches and migraines.

You are worth it! Set yourself on the path to better health and well-being and book your RMT appointment today!

 

What are the different types of headaches you may be experiencing?

 Our registered massage therapists can help you combat your headaches to keep you moving. The most common types of headaches that can be resolved with massage therapy can be:

  • Tension headaches caused by stress 
  • Post-traumatic headaches
  • Sinus infection migraines that arise from having the flu or being sick
  • Hypertension headaches
  • Overheating or extreme weather temperature headaches
  • Hormone headaches

 

Effectively relieving stress-related headaches with massage therapy

While you may be experiencing a variety of different induced headaches, tension headaches are the most prevalent amongst the 18 to 65 Canadian age group. Stress-related headaches occur when the neck and scalp muscles contract due to external stress-related factors, poor posture, an increased workload and arthritis. Tension headaches are sometimes accompanied by pain along the jaw and cheeks. 

During your initial consultation with one of our registered massage therapists, we will conduct a series of questions to examine the types of headaches you are experiencing. From there, we will develop a treatment plan to relieve problem areas and help you alleviate tension headaches from happening in the future.

Through a combination of muscle release techniques, soft tissue mobilization and focusing on pressure points, you will walk out of your massage feeling relaxed and healthier. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function and/or relieve pain. Frequent massages have been proven to improve the quality of life and provide long-lasting pain relief for our patients. 

 

The benefits of frequent massage therapy

Massage therapy is a comprehensive intervention involving a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues of the body such as skin, muscle, ligaments, tendons and connective tissues. Through the release of restricted blood flow, you will experience:

  • Increases blood circulation and targets areas with poor blood flow 
  • Decreases sleep disturbances and distress symptoms
  • Reduces muscle spasms and trigger points
  • Boosts the levels of serotonin that are responsible for diminishing the stress hormone cortisol
  • Releases any tense neck muscles that are responsible for painful headaches and migraines
