The warmth and long days of summer are usually a welcome change, but if you suffer from frequent headaches, seasonal light and weather changes can often trigger painful headaches and migraines. For an at-home alternative to pain medications, give acupressure a try.
Acupressure works by applying pressure to specific meridian points, stimulating and recirculating Qi throughout the body. This helps to release any blockages and encourage balance. Depending on the individual and symptoms experienced, different meridian points can be targeted.
