For tension headaches, try putting firm pressure into the web space between the thumb and forefinger of your dominant hand, using the thumb and forefinger of your non-dominant hand for 60 seconds. Breathe deeply, (If you are new to health tips or just need a refresher, e-mail me and I will send you the tip on diaphragmatic breathing.)
