Your Prescription for Natural Headache Relief
As a reflexologist and holistic healer, I have seen a lot of clients over the years with headaches. Since I struggled with chronic migraines as a child, I have a personal vendetta against headaches of all types. It has been my pleasure to help my clients get rid of their headaches with a combination of reflexology, acupressure, and essential oils.
While mainstream medicine’s remedies can help kill the pain of some headaches for some people, they rarely get to the root of the problem. Not only that, they are less than ideal for regular use due to their toxic effects on the liver and kidneys. And of course, the more you are able to take care of your medical issues yourself, the better prepared you will be for any potential disaster.
If you are sick and tired of headaches, I challenge you to try the solutions I outline below.
Get Rid of Headache in 4 Simple Steps –
Whatever type of headache you suffer from, you can find relief that I’ve found almost always works immediately or within minutes!
To Sum it Up:
1) Essential Oils –
Apply 1-2 drops topically on area of pain. PanAway can also be put into homemade gelatin capsules, diluted with a carrier oil, and used internally for severe pain.
Hormonal Headaches — use Progessence Plus
Reflexology is the principle that there are areas in the hands and the feet that correspond with all the organs, systems, and parts of the body, and that working these areas on the feet and hands can contribute to increased blood and nerve supply in the body.
Sinus headaches — Firmly massage the fingers, toes, and balls of feet paying particular attention to any sore areas.
Tension headaches — Firmly massage the fingers, toes, and reflexes for the spine and neck (up the arches of both feet from the heels to the tops of the big toes), and reflexes for the solar plexus and pituitary (see chart below).
Migraine headaches — Massage the areas indicated above for tension headaches, adding the kidney reflexes to the protocol.
Acupressure is the art of pressing so-called acu-points along energy meridians in the body, and is part of the Chinese system of medicine. When these areas are stimulated, it can release blocked energy and can help alleviate unpleasant symptoms including headaches.
Sinus headaches — Using firm pressure applied with the thumb or index finger, hold each of these points for several seconds one-by-one making sure to get both sides of the body.

“Just after I first got started using essential oils, I had suffered with a sinus headache for about 36 hours when I was reminded to try my peppermint oil. I rubbed one drop on my forehead and another across the bridge of my nose and the sinus cavities on my cheek bones – within 10 minutes my headache was completely gone!”

“I have suffered with migraine headaches since I was 9 years old. I am in my mid 40′s now. I am allergic to most medicine, and only found relief in aspirin. I was searching for an answer when a friend introduced me to pure peppermint oil. I am amazed and thrilled to say on average the headache will be gone in 10-15 minutes! I apply the oil directly or take in a capsule. If my sinus are acting up also I use lavender oil with the peppermint. It really works!!!!”
Kelly R., NY
“In the past, I’ve been in the emergency room on a number of occasions with headaches so severe that I would be given hard-core pain drugs. These drugs would only take about 50% of the pain away. I started seeing Julie and when I come in with a headache, every time she has been able to get rid of it completely with her combination of essential oils and reflexology/acupressure! Peppermint oil seems to work the best. No longer am I captive to my severe headaches!”
