A headache is not the most pleasant of feelings. Especially when it strikes you at work or on the road, when you don’t have pills handy, and you actually don’t want to take them until absolutely necessary.
We have a simple method for you to get rid of headaches and stress in just 30 seconds and without any medications.
There are active spots on our body that can be massaged to relieve pains and aches of different natures, and such acupressure techniques are also helpful to get rid of headaches. The point to press on is situated on your palm, between the thumb and the index finger. Connect these fingers to find it — see the prominent muscle on your palm?
On this point you have to press so that your thumb is on the back of your hand, while your index finger presses from below on the palm. You have to maintain this pressure for 30 seconds, then alternate your hands and do the same for the other hand for 30 second. If you have followed these instructions correctly, your headache will soon disappear.
Pregnant women shouldn’t practise this technique, as it may cause premature labor.
