Acupressure Point for Instant Headache Relief

The acupuncture point known as “Large Intestine 4” is located in the middle of the web between the thumb and forefinger of each hand. This point can be massaged to relieve headaches or any discomfort in the head and face. It is also beneficial for helping the body overcome colds and flus and is a major point for relieving pain in general. The next time your head is aching, try massaging this point deeply for at least a minute on each side, pressing towards the bone of the forefinger and see if it relieves the pain. Note: This point should not be used by pregnant women.
