It’s most certain that you’ve suffered from a headache at least once in your lifetime, but you read this probably because you have chronic headaches which make your life miserable.
It is most likely that so far in order to keep the ever annoying pain under control you used to swallow pills. Headache medicine is often very harmful to your body, and while it helps relieve the pain, its side-effects often hurt other important for well-being systems and in the long run you have to cope with new issues, caused by the medicine. Moreover, if the same drug is taken on a regular basis (e.g., if you suffer from a chronic migraine) your body develops tolerance to it and that drug often stops working, making you increase dosage or try other even worse drugs.
Now I would like to explain how you could get rid of headaches or migraines in a matter of several minutes on your own or with a help of a partner. Before we continue please find a little stick with a not too sharp edge (a toothpick with a broken sharp edge will do).
Getting Rid Of The Forehead Headache
Let’s begin with the case where you have a headache in your forehead area.
Find on the thumb of the left or the right hand the most painful point in an area corresponding to a frontal part of the head as shown in the following picture.
Press this point with a moderate effort and begin a slow rotation of the stick in two directions. Carry out this massage for several minutes and the headache would disappear.
You could apply the same procedure on other fingers of the right and left hand.
While you do that it’s crucial to have the intention making yourself feel good. Do not think “i want pain to go away”, but “I feel good”. If you think about pain, you will get pain.
If the pain doesn’t go away massage a few extra points as shown on the following picture. Massage the points with the constant moderate effort while slightly rotating the thumb, without moving it. This point should not be stimulated if you are pregnant.
Another technique is to stick grains of buckwheat to the painful points and leave them there for a couple of hours to ensure that the pain doesn’t return. You can use a band-aid to keep the grains in place.
Getting Rid Of The Headache On Sides Of The Head
Apply the same techniques as described earlier using the following pictures:
Getting Rid Of The Headache On The Top And Back Of The Head
And again, use the same techniques, but using the following pictures, first using the back of the thumb of the left hand:
and then using the fingers of the left hand:
On the pictures you can see me using a special stick used in Su Jok therapy, which you could probably purchase from your local health store, but again any similar stick would do the trick.
The techniques used here are based on Su-Jok Therapy, but the good thing is that you don’t need to know anything about it to get rid of pain.
