migrane relief


  1. Find the area midway between the middle of your eyebrows. 
  2. Apply deep pressure with your thumb or index finger moving upward.
  3. Continue for 1 minute or until pain subsides, breathing deeply.


  1. Locate the "web" area between the thumb and index finger.
  2. Squeeze this area using the thumb and index finger of your other hand.
  3. Continue the pressure until your pain is relieved or you have reached 1 minute, breathing deeply.
  4. Switch hands and apply pressure to the same area on the opposite hand.


  1. Place your fingers at the middle of your neck at the back of your head to find 2 more points for migraine pain.
  2. Move your fingers to directly below your skull and the top of your neck.
  3. Continue to move your fingers about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5.0 cm) to the sides of your neck until you find a small indentation.
  4. Tilt your head slightly backward.
  5. Apply pressure with your thumbs to this indented area and press upward for 2 minutes or until the pain stops. Be sure to breathe deeply during this procedure.

Top of Head

  1. Locate the pressure point at the top of your head by drawing an imaginary line from the front of 1 ear over to the front of the opposite ear.
  2. Draw another line from the middle of your brow up to the top of your head at the midpoint to meet the first imaginary line. This intersection is the pressure point.
  3. Apply firm pressure to this point for 1 minute or until the pain stops, breathing deeply.


  1. Locate the area between your big and second toes on the top of your foot.
  2. Apply pressure with a rubbing motion to this area with either your thumb or the heel of your opposite foot for 1 minute.
  3. Switch and repeat the procedure on your other foot, breathing deeply.

Also, I know we aren't really supposed to do what he is doing in the first video, but we could explain it to a client and have them do it to themselves... It's pretty interesting. 

Pressure point pattern for migraines
Galbladder 20
Small intestine 19
Liver 3
Large intestine 4 
Bladder 10 
Spleen 6 
Bladder 1 

So the above points are the ones that I would use on a client who complained about headaches. I decided to use these based on the amalgamation of points used by various people that I thought were the best. Points research found by Stephanie!
