Headaches

Tired of debilitating headaches beating you up and ruining your day?

There are many reasons why you might suffer from headaches or migraines. Whiplash seems to be a well known reason, but there are many different traumas that can set in motions the years of debilitating headaches like a bad tooth or even dental surgery. The age of cellphone has crated a whole new set of neck strain which can be the cause of headaches.

Although it may feel like it, a headache is not actually a pain in your brain. The brain tells you when other parts of your body hurt, but it can’t feel pain itself. Most headaches happen in the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles that cover a person’s head and neck.

Few systems have as much impact on the brain and spinal cord as the membranes and fluids that surround and protect them which are collectively called CranioSacral system. In addition to headaches, neck and back pain, it’s been used effectively on jaw dysfunction, chronic fatigue, depression, eye problems and many other conditions.

With migraines there can be multiple causes, virtually anything that interferes with the autonomic nervous control of the blood vessels in the head can result in migraine headache. In general CranioSacral Therapy does a very good job of normalizing autonomic nervous system activity. It is also an effective stress reducer, which makes it particularly effective with migraines since they’re often triggered by stress.
