What is the Quick Remedy for headaches?
The easy remedy is massaging 5 acupressure points for headaches.
Acupuncture points are everywhere in the human body.
More than 360 points are in the human body, and these dots are connected.
Acupuncture points are like the train station, and the meridians are like railroads.
Qi or energy is the train. When you are healthy, the train is running all the time, 24/7.
However, if you are sick or injured, the train stopped causing pain or other body symptoms.
Acupuncture or Acupressure increases blood circulation and helps people with headaches.
UB2, Du20, GB20, SJ21, and GB5 are great acupressure points for headaches. These points were used in this study and improve the patients with chronic headaches, according to National Library Medicine in 2010.
The study was applied in a medical center in Taiwan in 2003.
They tested in a Total of Twenty-eight patients suffering from chronic headaches.
They split in half of the acupressure group and the muscle relaxant medication group— resulting in self-appraised pain scores, one month after treatment, and a 6-month follow-up.
The researchers recorded pain areas to establish trigger points.
Results showed that mean scores were significantly lower in the acupressure group than in the muscle relaxant medication group.
UB2 is at the inner corner of the eyebrow. When you touch it, you feel the tiny depression.
Du20 is on top of the head, and you feel the most tender spot.
GB20 is behind the ear, and there is the bone called the mastoid bone. You can press and find the most tender spot. That is the GB20.
SJ21 is in front of the ear, and you can feel the depression.
GB5 is on the temple bone.
