ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

Those Awful Headaches!

Headaches plague just about everyone at some point in their life, and we want to educate and encourage you all to understand the causes, as well as help you to improve the frequency of headaches that may be troubling you OR someone you know! Headaches can have various trigger points. Stress is a very common trigger, along with certain foods, smells, hormonal changes, environmental changes, and emotional responses. These common occurrences can make for some serious discomfort that we all know as a headache.

One of the largest causes of headaches in inadequate water intake. It is recommended to drink one ounce per pound of body weight daily. We would encourage you to pass that, and increase the amount! Water can detoxify by flushing the body, and it also encourages proper circulation and organ function.

Another common cause of headaches is due to subluxations in the upper back and neck. This means the alignment of the vertebrae that make up your spine is off and can be possibly pushing against trigger points that are causing your headaches. Chiropractic care is the number one treatment for these issues!

If you notice a regular headache coming around, try keeping a diary or make a quick note of your surroundings and what you may be experiencing. After a week, look back through your notes and see if there are any common factors. If so, take a few weeks and try to avoid those triggers. Most likely, you will see some improvement in the frequency of your headaches!

Do you or someone you know suffer from chronic headaches? If so, send us a message or give us a call and let us see what we can do to help relieve that discomfort for you. We would love to help!
