Washington, July 9 (ANI): Scientists have proved that the psychological and physiological state of patients with tension headache improves within 24 hours after receiving a 30-minute massage.

Researcher Cristina Toro Velasco and Professor Manuel Arroyo Morales showed that a 30-minute massage on cervical trigger points improves autonomic nervous system regulation in these patients.

Similarly, patients report a perceived relief from symptoms within 24 hours after the massage.

The results of this pioneer study were published in American Journal of Manipulative Physiological and Therapeutics. (ANI)
