I work with babies, and I think carrying and lifting big babies and strollers and other things have taken a toll on my neck and shoulders over the past 6 months in particular. I occasionally get pinched nerves from over-tight muscles that reach all the way up to my head — the result is extremely painful migraines that last for days. I would love it if your readers could recommend some places in DC that are metro-accessible and not terribly expensive. I’m looking for professional massage therapists who really understand the relationship between musculature and nerves. I’m also open to trying a talented therapist who practices Chinese medicine and/or Eastern treatments.
The pain from these muscle-related migraines is almost unbearable these days. Thank you in advance.”
