    Hi James,
    Great idea..just from the female point of view, when I get my hair done my stylist will do a bit of a scalp and temple massage as she knows I get migraine. Saves me time going for a full massage and it really helps..

    Kind of makes you want to go to the stylist every other day, doesn’t it? I’ll bet you either have great looking hair, or maybe very short hair! ;)

    Seriously though, that is nice. Even a short massage (the one above is pretty short, actually) can be a big help.

    Thanks so much for this video link! I showed it to my husband and now he does a massage similar to this video every night because it really seems to help. We tweaked some things. I can’t tolerate pressure on my temples or my forehead. So, he avoids that area. But, because I have neck/occipital neuralgia stuff in addition to Migraine and New Daily Persistent Headache, the neck massage has really helps. Thanks again!

    Right on! It’s great to have someone to “train” – hope you keep seeing improvement. ;)

    Thank you so much for this. I have occipital neuralgia and status migrainosis. I have had migraines and all sorts of other symptoms my whole life and nothing has ever worked. I also love the podcasts. Thanks for everything that you have on this site. My neurologist just wants to use meds and nerve blocks even though neither seem to help. I can use all the help I can get anymore.
