  • An abrupt, severe headache like a thunderclap.
  • Headache with fever, stiff neck, confusion, seizures, double vision, numbness or weakness in any part of the body, which could be a sign of a stroke.
  • Headache after a head injury.
  • A chronic headache that is worse after coughing, exertion, straining or a sudden movement.
  • New headache pain after age 50.

Elie has instructed me on how to exercise at home to strengthen my shoulder and her massages are so welcome. I am thrilled! I feel 100000000% better than I did before I visited Ellie – Thank you
