Pressure Points for Migraine Relief

The onset of a migraine can put a screeching halt to your day. The throbbing pain, nausea and sensitivity to light or sound would knock anyone down for the count. There are alternative methods of slowing down or minimizing migraine pain, and one of these methods is utilizing pressure points for migraine relief.

This practice can be sometime referred to as either Reflexology or Acupressure. Stimulating various parts of the face and neck regularly can help with reducing or avoiding migraine symptoms. The idea is to help energy flow throughout the body, in turn leading to the release of endorphins which act as natural painkillers in your body.

Some of the pressure points used most often for migraines are:



There are many points on your face which can be used to stimulate energy. When appropriate pressure is applied, energy will flow downwards and help you find pain relief.

  • Third Eye Point The point where the bridge of your nose meets the spot between your eyebrows is called the Third Eye Point. Pressure applied here will bring relief from headaches, eye pain or tiredness and allergy symptoms.
  • "Drilling Bamboo" Right below your eyebrows, at the inner corners of your eyes, is another pressure point that can aid in relieving headaches. It can also help with vision problems. Hold the pressure on these areas for at least 60 seconds on each side.
  • The Temple Region Not surprisingly, there are more than one pressure points for Migraines in the temple area. It is where we naturally tend to rub or press when we have a headache. These points are near the top of your ear. There is a line of five points that are about a fingers width above your ear, and they curve around the top of your ear. It is best if you stimulate all five of these points at the same time to get the best relief. These points are called the hairline curve, valley lead, celestial hub, floating white, head portal yin, with the hairline curve being at the top of the ear and the rest curling around toward the back of the ear.
  • Facial Beauty These spots are on both sides of the nostril, near the bottom of the cheekbone. Migraine and tension headaches can be relieved using pressure in on these points.
  • "THE NECK REGION" The neck has several different pressure point areas and some are used to relieve back and neck pain. Some of the Migraine relief spots are:
    The Wind Mansion At the top of your neck, in the large hole below the skull is the Wind Mansion. Applying pressure to this spot will not only help reduce Migraines or headaches, but can also help unblock your nasal passages.
    "Gate of Consciousness" You will find these spots in the hollow between the vertical muscles at the back of the neck. They can help with headaches, neck stiffness and eyestrain, which can contribute to the discomfort of a Migraine.

These are only a few of the numerous pressure points found on areas of the body such as head, face, hands and feet.
