Acupressure Treatment For Headaches And Migraines

without comments

Two of the most common problems that people endure and suffer from are headaches and migraines. A headache may last for a few minutes, several hours, or even days and may be mild, throbbing, or severe. For some people, tension, emotional changes, and severe stress can lead to massive headaches, whereas migraines can have a more complex cause, with the brain’s blood vessels swelling to a point where it releases chemicals from the nerve fibers resulting in severe pain and inflammation.

Causes of Migraines

There are certain reasons why migraines develop and certain points can act as triggers that can set off a migraine attack. These are:

1. Eating habits – Some of the foods we eat can be a major factor in triggering migraine. Some of the major food triggers of migraine are fermented foods, caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco.

2. Hormonal changes – Another important factor causing a headache or migraine.

3. Other causes – Sleeping disorders, work pressure, stress, and tension can also factors that cause nausea, severe headaches, and migraines.

In Chinese medicine, these are the six most important pressure points in the body to alleviate migraines and headaches:

1. Shoulder Well – Found midway to the shoulder’s edge and the base of the neck. Putting pressure on this point helps relieve neck and shoulder stiffness that reduces neck pain. This point can also cure spasms and asthma.

2. Face region – The points to this area are found on both sides of the nostril. When applied with pressure, they can help open up the sinuses and relieve both migraine and tension headache.

3. Temple region – Found in the temple region, these are series points that wrap around the ear, beginning from the top of the ear located just one finger width from the ear. All those pressure points need to be worked together to garner significant results.

4. Bright light – This section is found on the eyes’ inner corner just under the eyebrows. Pressure on these points can alleviate allergy symptoms and sinus headaches. Apply pressure on both sides for a minute.

5. Third eye point – This point is found on the area where the nose meets the two eyebrows. Pressure on this area helps cure headaches and eye strains. Apply pressure for one minute and then move to other the points.

6. Forehead – Pressure points on the forehead and face are known as yang points, filled with energy that travels downward from the head to the face and down to other parts of the body.

In terms of long term treatment of migraine problems, acupressure has been rated the most effective therapy of its kind. Try it for long-lasting and effective relief.
