Migraine pressure point for relieving pain     

Migraine is accompanied by severe headache on one side of the head, nausea, vomiting visual and sensory distortions, hallucinations and fatigue. There are various preventive approaches by means of which one can get rid of the symptoms such as aromatherapy, acupuncture, reiki, massage and shiatsu. Massage is one of the most relaxing migraine remedies and has a wide range of benefits. It focuses on alleviating tension by massaging the various migraine pressure points in the body, thereby imparting relief and improving blood circulation. You can always approach an expert or try doing it yourself.

Migraine pressure points:

These points are certain places in the body which help relieve migraine pain when massaged or pressed. It is not necessary for these pain points to hurt when they are touched. Massage helps improve blood circulation, increases the transport of oxygen throughout the body and helps the dilated blood vessels to return to their normal size.

Massage technique for alleviating tension:

You can press the various migraine pressure points in a slow, repeated manner in order to get relief from pain. Apply pressure by using the pads of your fingers or thumbs. The pressure applied must be light to moderate and you should be able to feel the tension beneath your first two fingers. If you feel intense pain on a particular pint, try to apply less pressure. Follow this with slow circular movements and massage the point until it feels more tender or warmer. Release slowly. Repeat at the same point again.

Different locations for migraine pressure points:

Base of the skull: This pressure point is located at the base of the skull about 1 inch from the spine.

Mid-forehead: This is located in the middle of the forehead between the eyebrows.

Hand: This is located on the fleshy part between the thumb and index finger.

Foot: This pressure point is located on the top of the foot - the region adjoining the big toe and second toe.

You can massage the various pressure points by using your fingers and can also make use of various essential oils or massage oils for relieving pain. The most popular essential oils recommended for treating migraines are lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, clove and sandalwood.
