Treatment for Migraine try Shiatsu

Treatment for Migraine

There are a number of holistic, natural, treatments available for Migraine. Here are some:

Complementary Treatment Options


Shiatsu has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of migraine, especially where stress is the trigger for the attacks. As Shiatsu is usually experienced as deeply relaxing, it creates a feeling of wellbeing that can help the body to recognise the relaxed state and learn to maintain relaxation. Shiatsu practitioners can work with conditions of both acute and chronic natures.


  • Feverfew (Chrysanthemum parthenium) can be taken, on a daily basis, to prevent the
    “cold” type of migraine, where there is the feeling of a tight band around the head.
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is recommended where stress is a trigger for migraine

Allopathic Treatment Options

  • Painkillers.
  • Anti-sickness drugs.
  • Where normal painkillers fail to combat migraine, the ‘triptan’ group of drugs is often prescribed.
  • People suffering a migraine should try to rest in a dark, quiet room.
