A tension headache often feels like there is a tight band around your head, squeezing tighter and tighter around your temples. You may also experience pain in your scalp or neck. Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, which may be triggered by responses to stress, depression, anxiety, or injury.
Here is some self massage tips to help alleviate that pain...
- Start by placing your thumbs on your cheekbones close to your ears, and use your fingertips to gently apply pressure and rub the temples (the soft spot between the corner of your eye and your ear).
- Using very firm pressure and a tiny circular motion, gradually move your fingers up along your hairline until they meet in the middle of your forehead, massaging your entire forehead and scalp as you inch along.
