An orthopedic traction headrest that serves as a natural for headaches, certain migraines, upper neck pain and muscle tension. Designed to mimic the occipital lift, a manual therapy widely practiced by doctors and therapists for decades. The teqchinique has been used clinically to help release muscle tension located in the upper cervical region.
Research has show muscle tension in the upper cervical region may be a leading cause of headaches, including migraines and neck pain. By placing the head properly on the device, the specialized high density foam will lift the head and traction the occiput, while at the same time applying gentle pressure to the muscular tension in the upper neck. This will allow the muscular tension to relax and the head will settle into the hammock of the device. When this occurs, pain may rapidly improve and with regular consistent use, patients or clients may find significant improvement in their headaches and upper neck pain.
The Headache Hammock provides patients or clients an adjunct therapy at home between visits.
It is also works great in office as pretreatment therapy to relax tense muscles in the upper neck prior to treatment.

Headache Hammock: Orthopedic Traction Headrest
The clients I have tried this product out and so far have been amazed at how it relaxes them. I usually start face up position for clients and after working on the upper body, I place the hammock under their necks while I work on their legs and feet (approximately 10 to 15 minutes). Taking it out before turning them over on their stomach. One had a severe headache at the start of the session and the other was one of my clients that doesn't relax easily mentally. Both said they just drifted off and headaches gone! :) Only wish they came with a washable covering.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
