Massage therapy can manage vertigo symptoms by identifying certain pressure points and releasing tension at these points. For instance there are certain points that when stimulated, provide relief from many of vertigo’s distressing symptoms. Typical massage points are located at the back of the head, at the back of the ear lobe and the bottom of the hairline. Massaging these locations helps counter dizziness, headaches, irritability as well as hypertension.
Likewise, massaging these locations help relieve neck pain, stiffness, ear pain and headaches, all of which can add to vertigo.
When pressure is applied to the point situated on the upper back, it helps stimulate the blood flow to the back relieving anxiety, agitation and irritability, all factors associated with the uncomfortable sensation of vertigo.
