Relieve Head Tension

I don’t know what’s in the air but both my mother and sister-in-law both had headaches this past week. One felt like her temples were pulsing so hard her eyeballs were going to explode. The other felt the tension behind her head. One thing was for certain, lying in a horizontal body position to not further aggravate their head tension was best.

Other ways to help alleviate this head annoyance are…

  1. Drink plenty of water. Dehydration can cause a headache to be sure to keep your tissues moist with water.
  2. Avoid Caffeine. Caffeine can cause dehydration. Caffeine can also interact with a few over-the-counter medications that also have caffeine in the ingredients. This means you have doubled up on your caffeine consumption which can cause you to experience a withdrawal symptom like a headache when the medication wears off.
  3. Dim the lights. Bright lights and a headache don’t mix. Dim the lights and find a comfortable position to lay down while gently massaging your temples in a small circular manner.
  4. Massage your scalp: Improve circulation by gently holding your scalp with both hands and moving the tissue under your hands forward and back. Also try massaging your temples in the manner described above.
  5. Relax: Try laying down for 30 minutes in a dark or dimmed light room and work on breathing from your belly.
  6. Try Peppermint essential oil: The natural solution to making the head tension to go away. Rub 1-2 drops to forehead, temples and neck to calm tension.
