Is massaging good for headache ?
It is already experienced by most people that massage is good during headaches. However, there are points to be aware of. Some people feel pain in the face area or on the scalp, called “allodynia”. People with allodynia should not be massaged because it can further increase pain. If there is no allodynia, sweet-hard touches and strokes made without pressing too much on the temples, between the two eyebrows, the scalp and the nape of the nape may reduce or relieve pain. However, even very stiff presses, rubs, or squeezes may seem to be relaxing for the moment, but may further increase the pain as they will cause the muscles to become stiff later.
Massaging the neck muscles is a situation that requires a little more attention. It is best to have a professional massage if possible. Because posture and sitting disorders are very common, spasm or flattening of the neck is a very common condition, and false massage may increase the pain as this area may increase spasms. Stiff pressures, rubs or tightening should not be done on the neck and upper back muscles.
