AMTA class on “Helping Clients Manage Migraines” completed

We have recently completed a course offered by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) to further our ability to help clients who suffer from migraines.

The course reviewed very specific considerations which are to be kept in mind while treating clients with migraines.

This AMTA course provided an in-depth understanding to us on how and why it is important for massage therapists to work with clients who suffer with migraines. 

AMTA “Helping Clients Manage Migraines”  described the various phases, types, triggers and symptoms of migraines.

Different treatments for specific types of migraines were reviewed in detail.

Finally, a list of pharmacological and non-pharmacological considerations for massage therapy for clients with migraines were discussed.

Please follow our blog as we discuss, in the coming days how:

  • Massage Helps with Stress Management

  • Massage is a Non-pharmacological Intervention

  • Massage increases Endorphins

  • Massage reduces Stress Hormones

  • Massage increases Serotonin and decreases Substance P

  • Migraine Specific Research that is a part of medica’s program
