Gentle massage

Sometimes, giving yourself a gentle head massage may help to alleviate a headache. If you are unable to do it for yourself, ask a loved one to spare a few minutes for you. Massaging your neck as well as temple areas can help to relieve a tension headache. This is according to WebMD. Tension headaches often result from stress.

Remember to always seek medical attention for severe headaches or if you are unable to find relief from any other pain/ discomfort reducing technique.
