Headache Galore

  We all get those annoying headaches every once in a while. You know the ones... causing you to get grumpy or tired or just plain in pain. Sometimes popping an Advil is pretty easy and convenient but there are other times when you might not want to throw one of those medicines in your mouth. If you where ever wondering if there was a more natural way to tell those pains to go away I'm here to tell you there is. Reflexology is a way of massaging yourself to help body pains. Depending where the pain is, there is usually a corresponding point on your hand or foot that you can massage and rub. 

  •  -Take the time to sit comfortably and try to relax your neck and shoulders.
     -Press the thumb of one hand into the web between the thumb and forefinger of the other hand. Continue massaging all around the base of the thumb.
     -Sometimes you will need to switch hands and massage both thumbs in order to get rid of the headache, but usually massaging one side will work.
     -Continue to sit in a relaxed position and take deep breaths for a minute or two to allow your body to relax.
     This, and also taking pure peppermint essential oil and rubbing lightly on your temples, will help to relieve you of your annoying headache.
