If you among those who are avoiding pills then you are reading the right article in case you are confronting with a headache.
Most of the times, painkillers have bad side effects that’s why I always recall for natural remedies when I want to combat any type of pain.
Lately, I was dealing with severe headaches and not even painkillers couldn’t release my head from that forceful “vise”. Anyhow, I managed to get rid of headaches completely with the following acupressure technique. It’s a scientifically proven massage and it doesn’t require any special medical knowledge.
How to make acupressure to get rid of headaches
Stay in a comfortable position and relax. The massage lasts between 30 seconds and 1 minute. Use slow, circular movements. The pain will disappear during the massage or 5-10 minutes after.
The six massage points:
The point of the third eye or Yintang lies between the eyebrows, where the root of the nose meets the forehead. It’s responsible for getting rid of eye fatigue.
These symmetrical points are located at the base of the inner sides of the eyebrows. This acupressure technique will help you if you are dealing with a runny nose or to improve visual acuity. Massage for 1 minute, pressing or using circular movements.
They are located in the sides of the eyes. Look for some small dips at the bottom of the cheekbones – there they are. This acupressure technique helps to open the sinuses, reduces headaches and toothaches.
These points are behind the head, between the ears and the end of the spine. Massaging them will help you to relieve nasal congestion, eye and ear pain, severe headaches and migraines.
The Shuai gu points are located 2-3 cm from the hairline, next to the temples. Look for some small dimples. Applying pressure soothes the pain in the temporal region and the fatigue of the eyes.
The points are located on the back of the palms between the thumb and the index finger. The pressure applied here calms the back pain, teeth, and tension in the neck muscles.
