Headaches are something we all experience at some point or another. For some, they may be mild and others extreme, I am someone who gets headaches frequently and they can be almost crippling.

There are tons and tons of different ways to try and get rid of a headache. Some of these methods work for different people. For me, there are a few things that help but a lot of the things that usually help other people do nothing for me. When I am experiencing a bad headache my number one go-to method of getting rid of it is acupressure.

You see, because I have dealt with this kind of thing for so long I can tell when I am getting a headache and nip it in the butt before it gets bad. Soaking in the bath and pressing on these pressure points is something I find to be quite relaxing but you don’t have to be in the bath for them to work. Below I will go over some of the best points to work with in regards to relieving headaches of all kinds.
