Massage can Alleviate Symptoms of Vertigo

     Vertigo is the feeling of dizziness that can be accompanied by nausea, loss of balance, and loss of hearing.  I, unfortunately, suffer from Vertigo, and, more unfortunately, am experiencing an episode right now due to a dental visit I had yesterday.

     I sat in a dental chair at a slightly upside angle and when I was propped back up into a seated position, those symptoms mentioned above weighted down on me in a nanosecond.  The hygienist didn't notice that I had turned as white as my coat.  And since then I have had numerous occasions of dizziness, most notable when I bend my head forward or backwards, and when I lie down.  I will be receiving a Chiropractic adjustment later this afternoon, thankfully.

     I found an article published by Livestrong.  It's a sort of "how-to" on Massage and its benefits to those who suffer from Vertigo.  It helps to alleviate the symptoms, so that you are able to function a little more normally.  Please read this article if you suffer from Vertigo, or if you know someone that does.  You can even share this blog entry with them.  I would be more than happy to help.  I know what you're going through.
