Of course, the first thing to do is to try to observe anything that tends to bring migraines on or make them worse. For example, red wine and chocolate are two things that do this for many people. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water throughout the day and not going without food. Try to find ways to ease the amount of stress in your life such as beginning a practice of meditation, yoga or tai chi.
Tense muscles at the back of the neck or bones slightly out of alignment can cause headaches, including migraines. Seeking treatment from a chiropractor can often help with these. If the doctor feels it is necessary, they may recommend an x-ray to determine if there is anything more serious within the musculoskeletal system that needs to be addressed.Cranial sacral treatments also tend to be very effective for migraines. These are generally done either by an osteopath or massage therapist who has received training in this technique. These treatments can also help the bones to adjust to where they need to be, to relax muscle tension and to balance the excess energy in the area.
