Having headaches is annoying and sometimes it is difficult to avoid for us. In most cases when we are under pressure, headaches appeared automatically. If it gets high level, we might faint due to the pain we felt.
A headache is a condition of mild to severe pain in the head. It can also attack at upper back or neck. There are various types of headaches, but most of the time headaches are brought on by stress, too long in front of a computer, noise and others.
One of the chief reasons for headache is tension in the muscles of the neck, scalp and jaw. We usually treat it by taking some sleep or consume over-the counter aspirin to relieve pain. However, what do you think, can we do this at any place?
Obviously, we can’t sleep at the office or at the shopping mall or any public place. In addition, we might run of aspirin when headaches hit us.
Do not worry! The easiest way to handle headaches and we can do it anywhere is through ‘massage’. Massage is the process of applying pressure or vibration to the soft tissues of the body. to heal injury, relieve psychological stress, manage pain, improve circulation and relief tension.
When we bear headaches, we can help ourselves with self-massage. Simple and everybody can do it, either at work or home or any other place.
Here we have listed four easy ways in massage to heal our headaches.
4 Easy Ways To Relieve Headaches
1. Eyes Area Massage
Close your eyes. Keep your middle fingers to your eyes that are above cheekbones. Massage that area lightly but firmly in a circular motion for 1 minute,
2. Eyes to Nose Massage
Using thumb, go along the underside of your eyebrows (along the bone on top of the eye socket).

Massage a point where you can feel it by moving the middle fingers of your hands to the back of your head and realise the base of your skull. Especially, at the tops of your neck that meets the base of the skull. Massage for a minute by using finger tips gentle in a circular movement.
