Having a headache is inconvenient, and it is sometimes difficult for us to prevent them. The majority of the time, while we are under strain, a headache will arise automatically. If the situation worsens, we may pass out from the discomfort we are experiencing.
A headache is a condition in which the head experiences mild to severe pain. It can also make an appearance in our upper back and neck. A headache can be caused by a variety of factors including stress, sitting for an extended period of time in front of a computer, noise, and others.
Tension in the muscles of the neck, scalp, and jaw is one of the most common causes of headaches, according to research. It is common for us to deal with it by getting some sleep or by taking aspirin over-the-counter to relieve our discomfort. Can we, on the other hand, do this anywhere?
It goes without saying that we cannot sleep at the office or in the mall. In addition, we may be out of aspirin if a headache strikes unexpectedly.
Do not be concerned! Massage is the quickest and most convenient approach to deal with a headache, and we can do it anywhere. Body massage, also known as deep tissue massage, is a technique that involves applying pressure or vibration to the soft tissues of the body in order to heal an injury, alleviate psychological stress, manage pain, enhance circulation, and relieve tension.
When we suffer from a headache, we can relieve the pain by massaging our own heads. It’s straightforward, and anyone can do it, whether at work or at home.
Here are four simple massage techniques that we can use to relieve our headache.
- Massage for the Eyes:- Close your eyes and take a deep breath in. Grasp your cheekbones with your middle fingers and place them above your cheekbones. For one minute, softly but firmly massage the affected area in a circular manner.
- 2. Eyes to Nose Massage:- Using a thumb, massage the brows from the eyes to the nose (along the bone on top of eye socket). Look for a slight indentation in the bone where it meets the bridge of your nose and eyes. Press your thumbs into the points with very light pressure. It’s possible to press and hold that region for 10 seconds each time.
- 3. Neck Massage:- Massage the base of your skull with the middle fingers of your palms after lying on your back with your arms at your sides. Particularly near the junction of your neck and skull, where the two meet. Using the tips of your fingers, gently massage the skin in a circular motion for a few minutes.
- 4. Scalp Massage:- For a minute, softly massage your scalp with the palms of your hands on top of your skull.
Take a big breath when you’ve completed all of the massages. If you’re still experiencing pain, try lifting your shoulders toward your ears for five to ten seconds before letting them fall back to their normal posture.
Once you’ve been able to accomplish it a few times, you’ll start to feel better. Your headache will be relieved, and you’ll notice a difference in how heavy your head feels afterward.
