I often receive clients who experience frequent headaches due to minor muscle soreness and stress. Tonight, however, I received a client who was in the middle of a very painful headache. Instead of taking any type of medication, she made an emergency massage appointment. In the intake and assessment period, I noticed her eyes appeared ‘sleepy’. Her responses to questioning were slow and labored. It was obvious she was in pain and upon discovering her headache, I proceeded to address where it was located and what type of pain it was. As it was in her eye and temples and only a dull throbbing, we proceeded with the massage. I focused primarily on the Traps, Levator Scapulae and Splenius muscles. Finished the session with facial acupressure, focusing on the sinuses. Her headache was completely alleviated, thanks to my new assessment tools!
