“Scientists have proved that the psychological and physiological state of patients with tension headache improves within 24 hours after receiving a 30-minute massage."
Researcher Cristina Toro Velasco and Professor Manuel Arroyo Morales showed that a 30-minute massage on cervical trigger points improves autonomic nervous system regulation in these patients.
Similarly, patients report a perceived relief from symptoms within 24 hours after the massage.
The results of this pioneer study were published in American Journal of Manipulative Physiological and Therapeutics.”
Whisper Laura comments :
Head aches are often the result of Isechemia or a lack of blood blood supply to soft tissues which results in hypersensitivity to touch or in this case a head ache. Massage therapists are trained in the neuromuscular and skeletal systems of the human body to find the trigger points that are causing such discomfort. Once the trigger points are released and the knots are all worked out then your Jefferson massage therapist will suggest that you drink plenty of water to flush your system out. That is why it often takes up too 24 hours to feel the difference. (Don’t worry… you will receive immediate benefits as well as we relax the areas that are causing you discomfort).
