Massage has proven effective for relief from the neck pain that is associated with tension-type headaches and migraine. But what to do when your massage therapist is unavailable?
1 Starting at the bridge of your nose, massage your upper orbit (eye socket) with your thumb. Pressure should be quite strong.
2 Make circular movements at the temple.
3 Massage your jaw. Apply pressure to the temporomandibular joint located just in front of the ear, while making exaggerated chewing motions.
4 Repeat as many times as necessary.
