I used to get tension headache when I was generally stressed maybe made worse because of the candida. I did not want to take meds or anything to relieve the pain so did a bit of research. You can easily get rid of a tension headache with just your fingers and thumbs.. honestly it really works!! Like anything tense a good massage sorts it out.
Its probably best to google it as im not sure i can explain it perfectly. You basically use your index finger and where the top of your spine meets your skull to the sides of your spine it dips in, this is where your index fingers go (both sides). Your thumbs go behind your ear lobes where it again dips, push in both fingers and thumbs and pull together and hold for a few seconds and repeat. Also massage your temples and also between your eyebrows, pinch with your thumb and finger.
I couldn’t recommend this highly enough!
