Address underlying causes

Headaches are common and are experienced for a variety of reasons. This section offers some acupressure protocols to help relieve your headache pain, but it will be important to address any underlying cause for long-term relief. For example, think about:

  • How much fluid have you consumed?
  • Have you eaten enough food?
  • Have you had caffeine?
  • How has your sleep been recently?
  • Have you been staring at screens all day?
  • Do you eat a lot of sugar?

You might benefit from drinking more water, eating, or making other lifestyle adjustments.
