What Is Headache Therapy?
Headaches can be treated in a variety of ways and each headache may require a different approach to achieve the best results. Headache Therapy focuses on natural ways to manage headaches without the need for over the counter medicines. It looks at many aspects of a clients’ life such as dieting, exercise habits, sleeping patterns, and treatments such as acupuncture and acupressure. Headache Therapy can be very beneficial in minimizing a client’s pain due to headaches.
What Types Of Headaches Can Headache Therapy Treat?
There are two main categories that headaches are divided into: primary and secondary. Primary headaches are the most common and are not the result of a serious illness. Primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches, and tension headaches. Headache Therapy targets primary headaches in their treatments and people are often very successful at relieving their pain. Secondary headaches are usually associated with an underlying illness such as sinusitis, and are not typically treated with headache therapy.
Treatments Used With Headache Therapy
Acupuncture and acupressure are two popular ways to treat headaches. Both acupuncture and acupressure are used to stimulate certain points in the body to relieve pain. Acupuncture involves inserting small needles into specific parts of the body, resulting in an increase in blood flow and circulation. Acupressure is when someone applies pressure to five specific regions of the body so that the body releases endorphins, the natural pain reliever our body produces. Focusing on these regions of the body help decrease muscle tension and vascular imbalance and can help headache pain long term. With no side effects and quick results, Headache Therapy is a valuable alternative to over the counter medicine.
