Acupressure for Relieving Headaches/Migraines

Most of us suffer from headaches and migraines. There could be various reasons for getting such problems .what made me to write this post on this issue is that I am one among you who prone for such daily minor yet annoying headaches. My initial approach was to go to a pharmacist, get a pill, swallow it and relax for a while. How many such pills should I take daily? Will this solve my problem was the doubt I had in my mind. I started this therapy about six months back. Now I am without a pill managing to get rid off it with this acupressure therapy.
I suggest my readers to try this method before swallowing a pill. It is simple yet effective.
Now before we go for this exercise let us be aware off the reasons of getting this problem.


1. Emotional stress
2. Nervousness & anxiety
3. Stiff neck & shoulders
4. Hangover & flu
5. Tiredness pauses.
6. Improper sleeping poisture
7. Menstruation cycle.
Note: if you are suffering from very chronic headaches/migraines, my advice is that you see a physician first.
Points for Acupressure:1.The first point is the at the base of the skull .
2.second point is on the hands .
Acupressure on Point-1 activation
Stand/sit straight .Put your hands on your head to locate the depressions at the base of your skull. Press gently on the points with the thumbs. Feel the pain .If you find the pain on the points press it gently for about 1-2 minutes. If one is not able to do this you can take someone’s help.Sometimes you find a severe pain do not leave it .continue it for said time. Pressure should be applied intermittently.Look at this picture for locating the points below the skull


Second point of activation (on hands):


As shown in the pictures press the point intermittently for 1-2 minutes. Follow this exercise 3 times in 24 hours. Do not press the points more than 3 times in 24 hours. By over pressing points we may damage them

Acupressure Potent Points for natural healing


Our body has full of energy .This energy gets discharge when we overwork and charged when we rest .A beautiful mechanism that God has gifted to every human being & the living things .We can compare our body to a rechargeable battery. It is charged and discharged.
If properly, utilized life span of the battery comes better.
A simple example would be this. We have a big house, Equipped with all household items. We live in it.
We have electricity there to brighten up our house when it is dark. Each room is having lights and switches.
Lights do not glow up unless we put the switches on, even though we have electricity there.
This simple example would give you a fair idea as what I am going to talk all about.
acupressure potent points Yes, I am going to talk about the Switches on our body and the activation of these switches so the flow of energy is maintained. That is nothing but An Acupressure therapy.
We are all aware that our body has a defense mechanism; it is capable of curing any disease provided we take right step at right moment with proper diet.
Our body has so many organs; each is having a specific function.
Some organs like Heart are situated on the Left side of the body so there nerve ending (switch for heart) is on the left palm and Right side organs like Liver will have nerve ending on the right side.
Therefore, the point is that both our palms & feet, (right and left) have all the nerve endings so called switches.
As I have told you, a house has good electricity but if one does not put the switches on, then there is darkness, as good as no electricity there.
How do I check if my body switches are on or off? It is simple. When one is sitting idle watching TV or relaxing on a cozy sofa set, just pressure your palm with the help of Thumb. if no pain it is good sign that switch is on, there is no obstruction of flow of energy. If there is pain, we need to activate it by pressing it for a minute or two.
This exercise should not be done soon after the meal at least for an hour. Pressing the hurting points can be done 3-4 times in 24 hours. It should not be done very often as we can damage the points. Just 3-4 times in twenty-four hours is sufficient.

Acupressure

I call this method as Health on Hands.
Why am I talking about this method is because of the experience I have with this techniques.
Do we not run to a shop to look for a pill when we have a headache, stomachaches gastric problems?e.t.c Yes we do .we swallow a pill to get instant relief .we may not be aware of the side effects that we might have to face eventually. In addition, I was one among you to run to a pharmacist for a pill to get rid of my sinus problem. I did that for a couple of months. Yet not relieved. I was fed up and left swallowing the pills. Problem did not stop, it went on. I had no clue as what to do .When I visited my friend’s house I happened to see a book called Natural Therapy. I looked at it and while indexing I found a few tips to day to day problems. One of them was my own sinus problem. With this tips I started experimenting on myself .Yes it did work and it has been working for me for everyday problems. Since then I started reading this book and took interest and now I want blog my experience so that you all can benefit.This is my experience with this therapy
Let me give you an brief explanation about it
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin mainly on the palms & feet to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing.
Some of us are already aware of a few techniques. One of them may be Acupuncture. This method use needles to release the pressure on the points. Where in the acupressure uses just the pressure put on the points using fingers .Not everyone can practice acupuncture, only the trained personal can do this. Where in acupressure can be practices by , an untrained person . One can try on once own body. One need not depend on others as it is done in acupuncture. Does not it sound so simple? .Yes it is.
