To relieve this type of headache, acupuncturists often use the Hou Xi (后溪) point.
To locate the Hou Xi (后溪) point, make a loose fist. At the crease near the little finger, where there’s a bump, apply pressure with the opposing thumbnail. Dig in until you “feel the sweet soreness.” Then at the same time, roll your head and shoulders. Do this for 1 minute at a time, repeating 4-5 times. Do this throughout the day until you feel relief.
Of course, one of the best ways to treat headache is through acupuncture. Make an appointment to discover the quickest way to relief!
