Myofascial Release is a hands-on treatment that focuses on the connective tissues that surround the muscles, blood vessels, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Very often with migraines the muscles of the neck and shoulders become tight which decreases circulation and contributes to the migraine headache. By loosening these muscles and fascia you can, in turn, improve circulation patterns decreasing the severity of the migraine and in turn helping to ward off future headaches.
