Chronic Tension Headache Relieved With Massage
People who suffer from tension headache will find their psychological and physiological state improve within twenty four hours with a 30-minute massage, confirm scientists.

Researcher Cristina Toro Velasco and Professor Manuel Arroyo Morales showed that a 30-minute massage on cervical trigger points improves autonomic nervous system regulation in these patients.

Similarly, patients report a perceived relief from symptoms within 24 hours after the massage.

The results of this pioneer study were published in American Journal of Manipulative Physiological and Therapeutics. (ANI)
