Tension Headache Relief

Tension Headache

If you have tension headaches, New Yew can help

  • Did you know that it’s not healthy to have more than 2-3 headaches per year? Yes, per year. (If you have more than that you need to find your triggers.)
  • Do your headaches start in your neck before moving to your head?
  • Do your headaches ever overflow into your neck and shoulders?
  • Do you headaches last more than an hour or two?
  • Are you taking ibuprofen or naproxen like it’s candy just to get by? 

If so, I can help!

Headaches are far too common in today’s world, although we all get them at least occasionally. I suffered through nearly weekly headaches in my previous career as a chemist and didn’t think anything of it. When I changed careers and became a massage therapist, I learned how unhealthy that was. Shortly after graduation from massage school in 2002, I began studying headache causes and treatments. Because of that, I’m uniquely positioned to help you with your headaches. Through massage, bodywork, Reiki, and aromatherapy, I can help you reduce both the frequency and the intensity of your headaches. Many times, by working together we can eliminate your headaches altogether. If your triggers turn out to be allergy or food related, I can refer you to excellent practitioners who can help you manage or possibly even eliminate them. 

How I can help (What you get):

  • An individualized treatment plan designed with your goals and needs in mind
  • Flexibility, should your goals or needs change
  • A therapist with an extensive knowledge of all the muscles that can contribute to your headache pain (even ones that aren’t in your head or neck)
  • Help to find your headache triggers
  • Strategies to help you to avoid or manage your triggers
  • An experienced therapist who has specialized in headaches since 2005
  • A therapist with a large number of techniques in her toolbox, because each person responds to a given technique differently
  • A combination of massage, bodywork, reiki, and aromatherapy services
  • Help to design an effective stress management plan that will be tailored to your needs, personality, and lifestyle
