Stop Headache or Migraine without Medication. Simple Easy Self Massage

Updated on November 17, 2014

My Headache Pain is Gone

By Dale Ovenstone

'Help me find a cure for my headache please, my head is thumping.'

'I got a major migraine, my brain is pounding pass those painkillers.'

Or even, 'sorry honey not tonight I got a headache.'

How many times have you experienced painful headaches or migraines for yourself, or have heard phrases like those above, before?

Tension grips like an iron collar, there's no doubt about it. At least, if not most blockages; nervous and muscular tension is a major contributor to many headaches and migraine.

Acupressure, relaxation, trigger point pressure and self administered manipulation is what is required to ease that pain and tension, and get the flow flowing naturally.

Try these techniques for yourself at home or where ever you are. Say goodbye to nasty painkilling drugs and pharmaceuticals.

Stressful tension on the nervous system at particular points of the body, create painful headaches or migraine. Maybe a knotted, tightened muscle, or even groups of muscle effecting nerve ends, and natural flow of life, especially around the eyes, face, head, shoulders and neck, require releasing through relaxation.

Relaxation, acupressure and massaging specific trigger points could stop your headache or migraine quickly or over a short period of time.

I want to show you an easy effective technique I use on myself and others, with great success. I call this 'the easy quick most effective headache buster.' And I have outlined it below.

(If you are a recurring headache or migraine sufferer, or you would like to know more areas of the body that can be self manipulated to ease or cure headaches or migraine. I have placed a short and enlightening video at the bottom of the page.)

The Easy Quick Most Effective Headache Buster

Welcome back, glad you made it...

Step 1: What is required for a successful headache/migraine release is to lie down comfortably, and rest head on a pillow.

Totally become aware of, and gradually take all weight off each muscle, individually, interweaving the face, neck and head (consciously pay attention to relaxing your entire head and your face, the rest of the body will follow) all whilst you are concentrating on relaxing; paying attention to muscles surrounding the eyes . Allow the soothing melting effects to take place.

When your head and face is so relaxed, and it has no weight...

Concentrate on relaxing your neck, shoulders, arms, back and chest (basically, relax the entire top half of body.)

Allow any tension to dissolve. Ease your breathing (as if you are about to fall asleep.) Spend a little time doing this if you can. Once your muscles are totally relaxed, and you feel the sensation of no body-weight, you are on your way to curing, fixing, stopping, or what ever you want to call it, getting rid of your headache or migraine.

As you have a headache, you may become aware; the constant thumping or pounding of pressure inside your head (this is quite normal, and further diversion of awareness is required. (Mental diversion becomes simpler, or easier, the more times practised, as you are honing this skill, or practising.))

Concentrate on painful tension present, melting, dissolving away whilst relaxing. Let any thumping or pounding in the background do its thing. Just ignore it, it will dull.

(To practice a diversion of awareness is an essential skill of life, a mental diversion technique (a specific kind of awareness which we all possess) is suited to controlling the pain in the body; instead of pain being the controlling dominator of the body.))

If you are attempting to cure someone else’s headache, talk them through the process of relaxation, whilst they are lying down.

Feel your voice as soothing, slow, calm. Talk to the sufferer with conviction and a confident mindset. You know it works!

Step 2: Become completely relaxed physically (when attempting headache self release, lay on your side and rest your hand near the back of your neck, so it feels comfortable and your arm is relaxed, but slightly movable too.)

Reach over towards the very base of your skull (where your neck disappears into your head) so your fingers come into contact right there.

Rest your arm so it feels comfortable, and relax.

Next, use your finger(s) to follow your skull bone right down to where your spine meets (feel the dip in your neck.) Push your finger(s) in and apply pressure, hold. Release and gently massage the area for a few minutes (consciously relaxing all over.)

Well, that's all there is.

I hope you feel better?

      Hi there Audrey

      To suffer only seldom headaches is a blessing, and I absolutely know what you mean. I wish thank you for admiring and sharing my work, and I respect your comments, they do inspire me further.

      Sounds like you are a healthy lady with a positive outlook on life, but why not spoil yourself, further, Audrey, and go book yourself in for a massage, possibly Thai. Benefits are amazing during & afterwards and you will fully immerse yourself, because of the results.

      December, 2013, my upper spine in my neck is out of joint for over 20 years (broken-because of an axe kick being dropped onto my skull in a karate competition) as you can imagine tension holds there, & affects my facial/nasal area, shoulders & surrounding.

      I practice the very same techniques of mind and body relaxation, (& sometimes self massage) but really, I have learned to ignore any detrimental effects of the said blockage. But in Dec 2013 I spoilt myself & went to a new Chiropractor that took the place of not such a good one, in my local area (one who wanted more money & only did about 2-5 minutes manipulation (physically) stating any longer massages will shock my darn system???)

      Believe it or not, the actual vertebrae which was way out of shape/place, she was able to almost correct-and I adhered 45 minutes of beneficial physical manipulation. But the entire process of the massage & correction, lasts, and I would recommend hard to reach areas, to be massage, by others, even just to spoil oneself.

      The way a humans' mental ability to relax body tension is amazing with practice, & fascinates me so much, I continually search all I can discover, to benefit myself & others.

      I wish you all the well for present and the future, Audrey

      Have a nice day & thank you for sharing your kind comment, and voting

      Many regards, Dale

      Fortunately, I seldom get a headache. I think I've had one in the last 15 years. But I did go through your step-by-step massage technique and I could feel my entire upper body relax.

      I read your bio. I can sum up my reaction in three letters - WOW!

      I also want to add that I am inspired by your writing style as well as the man that writes the style.

      Thank you for sharing your talents here on HP.

      Voted Up ++ and sharing.

      Happy thoughts ~

      Thank you for your comment DDE

      Relaxation is the key. Many ailments in the body are nothing more than tension.

      Focus with intent. Clear the blockage and flow as nature intended.

      Many regards. Dale

      jasper420 thank you for your comment & so sorry to hear your plight.

      If you can understand you must become totally relaxed as best as you can to help relieve tension (muscle clenching that may be held onto consciously & unconsciously) take all the weight off every single part of your top body by concentrating, feeling muscle tension turn into warm liquid & just let it go, a bit at a time, your shoulders, neck, arms even face, tongue, eye & surrounds, teeth & your forehead etc: this is most important to make the technique work

      Hope this works for you & please jasper420 let me know how you get on.

      All the best Dale

      thanks for the advice, I'll give those steps a go. I've tried visualisation techniques and other natural approaches, for me, it seems to be about how quickly I react to the headache warning signs.

      Thank you Linda, I think we all have the capabilities of healing if only we believe so, & when you believe wholeheartedly in your own ability to heal your intended patient your patient will have the ability to heal themselves because they trust your ability. Thank you for your comment. Dale

      Maybe you are a born healer. I will try this next time I have a headache. Hope that won't be soon. Seems like it has been a few months since I had one!
