Headaches have many causes.
Typically, headaches treated by a Registered Massage Therapist may include:
Tension Headache: this most common headache is likely due to chemical changes triggering brain nerves and blood vessels.
Migraine Headache: scientists don’t know exactly why migraines occur, but they probably result from swelling in blood vessels and nerves that surround the brain.
Cluster Headache: these are intense headaches that start around one eye, then spread to nearby areas of the face.
Sinus Headache: due to inflammation, usually in the frontal and maxillary sinuses.
