Physical activity

It is known that physical activity reduces pain due to secretion of endorphin hormones.

Massage

Once you have already purchased essential oils to try our first tip, here’s another great way to use them, in the massage. Massage relaxes and stimulates, but the most important element of massage is touch. A touch can heal even the worst migraine.

Let someone press the certain points on your head. The pressure should last a few seconds, followed by a pause of a few seconds, then back with the pressure. Touch will alleviate the headache. Of course, a thorough massage of the head and neck is even better solution. If you do not have someone on hand to massage your head you can try it yourself. Use the thumb and index finger, pinch the head in two points and hold for a few seconds and release the pressure.
A foot massage can also significantly alleviate your headache, we advise you to try.

Hot and cold

The changes of the body temperature lead to other changes. If you suffer from headaches, short-term change in temperature can stop that pain. For some people, to relieve migraine helps a cold shower, and some warm shower. You need to try and figure out what helps you, just do avoid extremes, and do not take a shower in ice or in hot water.
