Take Charge With Alternative Migraine Treatments

July 6, 2012 LYT By:

Do you suffer from migraines? We’re here to help you take charge with an alternative migraine treatment. Craniosacral massage therapy is a very beneficial and relaxing migraine treatment massage at LYTNYC!

Migraine Treatment Massage 

Craniosacral therapy is a biomechanical adjustment of energy flow that is achieved by relaxing the fascia of the vertebrae and cranial bones. This therapy can be performed as a migraine treatment massage and is wonderful for reducing and helping your body to virtually dispel migraines. Now let’s get to the “boney” details!


What Can Cause Migraines?

1. Disruption in our autonomic nervous system: vehicular accidents, falling, sports collisions, etc.

2. Stress and tension

3. Restriction of cranial bones or restriction of bones in other areas of our body


How Does Craniosacral Massage Therapy Work?

During a massage for migraine treatment at LYT, you will lie clothed on a massage table while our therapist, Jennifer Taveras, L.Ac., applies very gentle yet specific manual pressure to various points along your skull, face, neck, spine, and possibly even your diaphragm to evaluate your breathing and movement of the cerebral spinal fluid. Read her personal story with craniosacral therapy here.


Subtle Massage Treatment Relieves Stress!

You may recall from our post on stress management techniques that craniosacral massage therapy can help correct the imbalances in the cerebrospinal fluid, thus reducing stress. It’s akin to meditation, focusing on breathing to assist a quieting of the mind.


Craniosacral massage therapy is an alternative migraine treatment that helps to re-establish harmony between the brain and spinal cord by imparting an ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid that pulses around them. Then, like waves in the ocean, a ripple effect signals the surrounding bones to release any tension that may reside in your forehead’s frontal bones.

In addition to experiencing relief from migraine pain, people often comment on how blissful they feel immediately following this deep and therapeutic alternative migraine treatment! Call us or contact us to learn more about how craniosacral massage therapy can help alleviate your migraine pain.
