Natural Remedies for Migraines

Trigger Point Massage

My friend had a migraine so bad that he threw up. I was pretty concerned for him, and knew that migraines often start at the base of the skull, where the neck muscles attach. So I had him rest his head completely on just my thumb and index finger, and after a minute, his pain was gone.

There are massage devices that you can buy on Amazon that do this, or perhaps try putting two tennis balls in a sock so they don't roll away. Hope everyone feels better!

I suffer from horrible migraines which begin with a tightening in the muscles at the base of the skull then affecting 1/2 of my head, especially behind the eye. The pressure of the massage breaks up the tissue that is inflamed. Ice packs help too.
