Specializing in headaches can be a very good business decision, and an even better hands-on choice!
Over 45 million Americans (about one in six) suffer chronic headaches each year. Headaches therefore have a big economic impact — when you have a throbbing pain in your head, it's hard to work. The cost of these headaches in absenteeism and medical expenses is estimated as high as $50 billion per year. Annually, people seeking treatment for headache pain account for 8 million consultations with physicians.
There are multiple causes of headaches and while most of these causes are not in the domain of massage therapy, tension and structural causes which account for many, are.
Join us for a comprehensive look at headaches and a surefire treatment plan for headache sufferers regardless of the cause. We have created a sophisticated massage therapy protocol for headache relief combining medical massage techniques like trigger point therapy, connective and deep tissue bodywork with traditional shiatsu for the neck, shoulders and upper back.
Great class! Opened my eyes to so many new techniques, especially practitioner saving techniques!! — Angie Pyatt, LMT
