The Headache Hammock is an orthopedic traction headrest and a natural remedy for most headaches, including certain types of migraines, as well as upper neck pain and muscle tension. It is patterned after a widely used therapy technique, the occipital lift. Practiced by doctors and therapists for decades, this maneuver has been used clinically to release muscular tension held in the upper cervical region. Research has shown this muscular tension may be a leading cause of headaches, including migraines as well as neck pain. The Headache Hammock's design mimics this therapy as well as allows users to massage muscular pressure points in the upper neck, enabling headache and neck pain sufferers to regularly and effectively treat their pain at home or while traveling. Our specialized hi-density foam also allows the Headache Hammock to be warmed or cooled to enhance its therapeutic effect.
