Understanding headaches and migraines

Understanding migraines and tension headaches


Migraines and tension headaches can be debilitating, characterised by intense pain, sensitivity to light, and sometimes nausea.


These headaches can significantly disrupt daily life, especially for busy adults.


While medications are commonly prescribed, they often provide only temporary relief and can have side effects.

Home remedies for migraines and headaches

Treating migraines at home


Stress Management Techniques

Stress and anxiety can sometimes be behind headaches and migraines. Managing that stress and anxiety can help alleviate headache pan, but is unlikely to fully resolve it.


Regular Exercise
Taking regular exercise can help reduce the frequency of episodes, although it requires regular exercise - which can be difficult with the pressures of a modern lifestyle - and may not address severe pain. 

Hydration and Balanced Diet

Most people don't drink enough fluid or eat a balanced diet, but for people who are struggling with persistent headaches or migraines, it's even more important to look at a balanced diet, including vitamins and minerals, and drinking enough fluids. However, this is not a direct cure.

Help for migraines in Bury Saint Edmunds

A professional approach to dealing with headaches

Happy Woman

If home remedies aren't helping or aren't proving enough of a recovery, then seeking professional help can be a useful next step.

Many people don't realise that issues with the muscles in the shoulders and neck can be to blame for headaches, along with the much smaller muscles and nerves in the scalp and face. 

While lack of knowledge in the public is understandable, sadly many therapists don't have the training to be able to be able to treat these muscles and nerves to alleviate headaches or migraines. 

At Lodge Sports and Remedial Massage, based in Red Lodge, Suffolk, close to Bury Saint Edmunds, Newmarket and Mildenhall, I regularly treat headaches and migraines

My unique approach involves massage therapy but also the revolutionary RAPID NeuroFascial Reset which allows me to brat both new and older back pain that has never quite gone away due to RAPID's interaction with the central nervous system. 

What does this mean for you? It means that you can be assured of a more effective and lasting recovery than either home remedies or traditional massage alone.
To find out how I can help you, simply get in touch with me to discuss your issues or just book your appointment today!

I know it's difficult to know who to trust.
So here's what my clients say about me.
