Yes, head massage can be effective in helping to alleviate the symptoms of migraines. Migraines are often associated with tension and tightness in the muscles of the head, neck, and shoulders. By using massage techniques to target these areas, a head massage can help to release tension and alleviate pain and discomfort.
One specific type of head massage that may be helpful for migraines is the Indian head massage. This type of massage focuses on the scalp, neck, and shoulders and uses a combination of gentle massage, acupressure, and other techniques to help relieve tension and promote relaxation.
In addition to the physical benefits, head massage can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, which are common triggers for migraines.
