Massage Therapy for Tension headache

Updated: Mar 2, 2023

It is a nightmare when you have a tension headache. Do you know that “tension headache is a muscle-contraction-type headache”? (Clinical Massage Therapy by Fiona Rattray, Linda Ludwig)

So if the muscles relaxed and the myofascial trigger points released, the pain may be much better.

Causes of tension headaches:

* trigger point stimuli and factors including trauma (to head, neck or spine), acute muscle overload, infection (such as sinusitis), fatigue, chilling of the muscle, referred pain and emotional stress;

* sleep disturbance

* postural imbalances

* Jaw uncomfortable from temporomandibular(TMJ) joint dysfunction

Our Massage Therapy Juncai (John) Zhou has excellent experience dealing with tension headaches.
