"I Never Knew My Migraines Had Muscles!"
I am a physical therapist who works in a headache clinic and find that so many migraine sufferers do not release the effect that tight muscles have on migraines, and how proper pressure on them can decrease a migraine attack in minutes, provided it has not already escalated too far. The comment above was made by one of my clients who had relief in just a short5 session. Muscles involved are often upper trapezius (the stress holder), along with the sternocleidomastoid in the portion by the ear, levator scapulae, and others. You should check with your healthcare provider first regarding this possibility.
