Self massage is a fast, easy way to relieve discomfort without the wait.

When that headache hits in the middle o' the day, take a few minutes and try these simple massage techniques for relief from tension and neck pain.
Tension headaches are usually caused by stress, but of course can be caused by many factors beyond our control. Many pain and inflammation medications can have long-term implications for other areas of the body like the stomach, so when possible, it's great to have some natural tips available to see if they can relieve your pain without the need for meds. Massage techniques increase blood flow and oxygen to tense muscles, and this can help relieve the nasty tension that is causing you pain.
Use a non-comedogenic (face safe) body oil (like mine!) for a smoother, nourishing massage.
Try these techniques on the couch or at the desk, or share them with a friend in need. :)
