Deep Tissue Massage can bring great relief for tension headache sufferers. How’s that work, you ask? Well, the stretching and kneading of massage helps to soften and lengthen the tight, contracted muscles that are causing the headache pain. Static pressure on those specific trigger points helps to dissipate the knots and increase blood and oxygen flow to the ischemic muscles.
Fast forward 30-60 minutes and those stubborn knots are less painful and have shrunk down to the size of Lilliputians, just not as cute. When the knots go away, you can say good bye to that tension headache pain.
