An area of the body that may be important for reducing migraine frequency is to release the muscle and tissue tension around the skull and upper neck.
We know that the upper neck has connections to the trigeminal nerve system in your brain (which is where migraine symptoms come from). This is one reason why a lot of research is being directed at treating this area for migraines and headaches*.
