Tension Balm is the result of years of research
into the development of a highly effective, all-natural topical
treatment for reducing migraine and its painful sequelae. Tension Balm
may be used prophylactically to limit migraine recurrence, as well as
during a migraine episode to halt further progression.
The synergistic combination of therapeutic ingredients in Tension Balm target pain and inflammation of migraine in a number of ways:
- regulates and decreases the inflammatory response of the cerebral neurovascular system;
- limits serotonin release from platelets, a key contributor to the inflammatory cascade;
- activates the brain opiate system to increase production of naturally-occurring, pain-relieving neurotransmitters and raise the pain threshold;
- inhibits the contractile response of vascular smooth muscle, relieving vasospasm and improving brain circulation which is diminished during a migraine episode.
