Headaches and Migraines can range from an annoying inconvenience to a debilitating event that interrupts the way you live your life. Unfortunately, not all common remedies for these conditions work on everyone, and some people even find themselves unable to find any relief. However, the tips that will be provided in this article may be solutions that you may not have considered yet. At the very least, spa solutions to headaches and migraines are excellent stress and pain relievers, which are often the culprits behind these problems or serve to make them worse.
The Causes Behind Headaches and Migraines
To tackle these health problems, we have to address the source of the problem; what causes headaches and migraines in the first place.
A Spa Day to Relieve Tension and Pain
Treating yourself to a spa day can work wonders on a headache or migraine that just won’t go away. Taking a dip in a jacuzzi or pool is an excellent stress-reliever, making a spa day a good remedy for tension headaches. Additionally, these relaxing experiences serve as a good way to relieve pain or at least distract yourself from it. Simply switching off from your daily routine and electronic devices that always need your attention can be enough to relieve a headache or migraine caused by the stresses of work or everyday life.
Massaging a Migraine Away
Some researchers have suggested that a constriction in blood flow to the brain can trigger, if not even cause, migraines. Since facials and massages are excellent treatments to improve your circulation, they can provide relief or prevent a headache or migraine from happening in the first place. Many massages that include neck and shoulder attention will also help ease neck, jaw and shoulder tension, which also may be contributing to your problem. A Turkish Massage may also be a good solution, since the warm heated marble room improves blood flow.
You can even enjoy specialised spa treatments that target specific headache or migraine causes. For instance, an antistress massage is perfect for the job, while a Hammam stress breaker package will give you both the benefit of stress relief and a circulation boost in the pampering Turkish bath. A Carisma signature facial can also help you release stress, as it includes a back relaxation treatment as well as a facial treatment.
As mentioned in the causes section, sleep problems can be the reason behind your headaches and migraines. The first problem to tackle is your sleep schedule, which you must keep as consistent as possible not to disrupt your body’s natural clock. It’s also important to determine how many hours you need to sleep to feel rested, usually between 7 or 9 hours, and maintaining that amount of rest. Both sleeping too much or too little can be a trigger for health problems, including headaches and migraines.
If you struggle with exhaustion and a lack of sleep, spa treatments like massages are excellent at relieving some tiredness and giving you a burst of energy afterwards.
Meditation & Yoga
Studies have shown that meditation or yoga may be useful tools in your arsenal. These practices center you, help you become more self-aware and reduce stress. It helps reduce the number and severity of migraines, and gives you a feeling of control over them. Nowadays, you can find specialised apps that will guide you through the process if you are new to meditation. If you want more hands-on guidance, Carisma’s Spa Club Membership includes free Yoga meetups as part of its many benefits.
Migraines and headaches can be a frustrating interruption to your life, so we hope that some of these tips will be helpful in reducing or preventing them from happening, or at the very least relieving some of the discomfort they cause.
