Next time you get a nagging headache, try a little fingertip therapy. You might feel better more quickly.
- Your temporalis muscle: With your index and middle fingers, apply pressure to your temporalis muscle. It's that tender spot where you feel a muscle move when you clench your teeth.
- Behind your ears: Using your thumbs, massage in a circular motion the spots just underneath the large bones behind your ears.
- Between your eyes: With your middle finger and thumb, gently pinch the skin just above your nose and press upward so you feel the pressure around your eyebrows.
- The web of your hand: Use your thumb and index finger to squeeze the fleshy pad of skin between the thumb and index finger on your opposite hand.
