A headache is the body's warning signal that the brain may not be getting enough oxygen. Most headaches are caused primarily by tension in the muscles of the head, neck and shoulders, which constricts the blood vessels that supply oxygen to the nerve cells in the brain. If you have a bad headache that persists for more than several days, you should see a doctor to rule out medical causes.
From a Chinese health care perspective, headaches and other symptoms are not only considered expressions of a physical condition, but also the emotional and spiritual aspects of the person as a whole. Acupressure can help uncover the reasons behind recurring headaches.
Michael Reed Gach, Ph.D., author and founder of the Acupressure Institute, shows the proper way to press the Hoku point, a famous trigger point for relieving headaches, especially frontal headaches.
