Natural Relief for Tension Headaches
Tension headaches are very common, affecting as many as 40 percent of teenagers & adults. Often brought on by stress, headache pain may be caused by the tightening or contraction of the neck and scalp muscles. These are called cervicogenic headaches because they originate in the cervical spine—the seven vertebrae of the neck.
Sufferers can find relief for tension and other types of headaches through reflexology.
Foot reflexology can be particularly useful for relieving tension and stress that can cause headaches by releasing tightness in the cervical spine. It is also used to treat migraine, cluster, and sinus headaches. Reflexology can help a person anticipate the onset of a migraine by tapping into subtle symptoms that appear before the headache.
