Q: Who would you turn to for treatment of the humble tension headache ? (hopefully you are not reaching for the bottle of pills)

Help ? !! Well it is at hand, because we know that this can be a difficult decision. Headache that is muscular in nature, is one such complaint that people turn to sports massage therapists. Tension headaches are derived from a musculoskeletal source – predominantly the muscles of the neck, shoulder girdle and cranium.
