Acupressure for Headaches

by Adem Shukri

Matthew, i really don't know what to say, i cant express how thankful i am for your help, you're truly amazing to have released this on the web. I have been a headache sufferer for nearly 7 years and am praying i have no long term damage.

I watched the video where you push the two acupressure points on the back of the head and could not believe how quick the results are...your product is truly amazing...I still can't believe how quick the relief is. I just did it as i was typing just now to make sure and am so amazed. I wish you all the success and hope you can get this out to the world. Thanks again Matthew.

Matthew's reply: Hi Adem, I'm very pleased to hear of your success using those two acupressure points - they truly are very powerful for relieving and stopping headaches, and other problems affecting the head, like head colds and sore eyes. If you find after using those points for a week or two the benefit wears off, then take a look at my Stop Headache Program. It offers a more comprehensive, long lasting approach to stopping headaches.

All the best,

Matthew

Relief of Headaches with Acupressure

by Lorena Pollard
(Santa Ana, CA)

Can I get or give relief from stress headaches, or even migraines, by working LI 4, Hegu Point? And if so, do I hold, knead, or do circular movements for tonifying or sedating?

Matthew's reply: Hi Lorena, yes, that acupressure point can certainly relieve headaches. It is a very commonly used point in Chinese acupressure and acupuncture for virtually all pain involving the face and head. You would most likely also need to press other points too though to stop headaches and migraines. One of my health programs, the Stop Headache Program contains 4 acupressure points plus a number of other traditional Chinese techniques to stop and prevent headaches.

Whether to tonify or sedate the point depends on your problem. Generally speaking, when the pain is of a strong, pounding, throbbing nature, the point needs to be sedated. When you have pain that is dull and better after rest, the point needs to be tonified.

To sedate a point there are various acupressure techniques. One is to press with your finger or thumb until you feel no more than a comfortable pain, then rub in quick circular movements for a minute or so. Repeat on the other hand.

To tonify, press the point but rub in slow, circular movements. Do both hands several times a day.

Any further questions just post below.

Matthew
