Migraine headaches are the second most typical primary headache. Roughly estimated 25 million people in the United States (about 12% of the population) experience migraine headaches every year. Migraine headaches occur in both children and adults. Prior to puberty, boys and girls are affected pretty equally, yet oddly after puberty, more women than men get migraines.
Migraine Headache Symptoms:
• Nausea and vomiting
• Dizziness, lightheadedness, or even vertigo (feeling like the room is spinning)
• Loss of appetite
• Visual disturbances, like seeing flashing lights or zigzag lines, temporary blind spots, or blurred vision
• Parts of your body may feel numb, weak, or tingly
• Light, noise, and movement — especially bending over — make your head hurt worse; you want to lie down in a dark, quiet room
A Gentle Winds and Hands massage can have a great impact on headaches -- bringing down the pain of migraine and halo headaches. Getting a massage on a regular basis can release the pressure, and ease the blockages to the blood vessels thus easing the headaches.
