The Abracadabra Stretch
Make Your Headache Disappear
Most headaches are tension headaches, caused by decreased circulation to the head and due to neck and shoulder strain. Stretching those muscles looser is a fun way to get blood back to the brain.
So give it a whirl! Sit looking straight ahead. Reach over with your left palm placed on top of your head, finger tips touching the top of the right ear. Tilt your head directly to the left without twisting or turning your head or neck. Once you have your head pulled to the side as far as you can without forcing it, begin to turn your head to the right, lifting your chin, as you keep the left hand pulling your head to the left side. When you have reached the full stretch, hold for 5-10 seconds. Move slowly out of the position and repeat, using your right hand to pull your head to the right. Repeat 5-10 times each side. Breathe deeply. Soon your headache will vanish!
