Top 5 Natural Tips for Holiday Headache Relief1) Chiropractic Adjustments. Chiropractic care is an amazing natural solution to treating headaches. Headaches can often result from built up tension in the neck. When you're very stressed, a lot of that stress builds up in your neck and shoulder area, which can place pressure on the surrounding bones, causing misalignments to occur. Chiropractic adjustments work to remove those misalignments and relieve that built up tension, which in turn helps relieve headaches. Chiropractic adjustments actually are great for both tension headaches and migraines as well. 2) Hydrate. With all of the holiday craziness, it can be easy to forget to drink water and rehydrate yourself. Sometimes all you need to get rid of your headache is a little H2O. We suggest having a water bottle on hand or within easy access so that you're more likely to remember to stay hydrated. 3) Peppermint Oil. Peppermint oil can provide great relief for tension headaches. Plus, it's very festive and appropriate for the holiday season! To use, you can simply apply the essential oil to your temples or around your hairline to provide a cooling relief that relaxes the muscles in your head. 4) Massage. If you have time to receive a massage either from a friend or professional, then we highly suggest it, and if not, then we recommend giving yourself a massage. Massage releases muscle tension and helps relax the body. With headaches, it would be especially beneficial to massage your neck, shoulders, temples, and back of the head for relief. 5) Warm Bath with Lavender Oil. Who doesn't love an excuse to take a nice warm relaxing bath? Well, headaches are definitely a worthy cause for baths. The warm water will help relax your muscles, while lavender oil helps soothe the headache.
