DIY Massage for Headaches
Mar 19, 2014
1. Hold your forehead with your left hand. Your palm should sit above your eyebrows and your thumb should be pointing upwards. Use your right hand to support the back of your head with your thumb facing downwards. You're head will be feeling especially delicate, so don't apply ant pressure just yet- simply close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths.
2. Keep your right hand behind your head. With your left hand, apply gentle circular pressure to the areas just above both of your temples using your thumb, middle finger and ring finger. Slowly lift the skin as you create five slow circles.
3. Now hold your whole head so that your palms are resting on each temple and your fingers are spread out on top of your head. Create pressure with both palms, squeezing and slowly lifting the skin upwards without taking your hands off your scalp. As you lift the skin, your fingertips should interlock. Count to five and then gently release.
