Is Your Hair Giving You a Headache?

Do you find yourself getting frequent headaches that you cannot account for, even after a massage or two at our Mercer Island foot massage clinic? It’s possible that the culprit is right in the back of your mind. Indeed, even something as simple as your ponytail may be triggering your chronic headaches.

When you pull your hair back in a tight tail or braid, it can put strain on your scalp’s connective tissue. This can lead to a headache. Even if you don’t pull your hair back, you might be getting a similar effect from a tight-fitting hat or headband. The next time you experience a headache, try letting your hair down or removing your headwear; you might be surprised at how quickly your pain goes away. If it turns out that your accessories are not the cause of your pain, though, you can always find relief with a good massage at Lux Foot Spa!
