Try Massage to Alleviate Pain
If you have a headache or tension, place your hands on the affected body parts and apply pressure until you feel relief (some experts warn against doing this when pregnant).

The temples: With index and middle fingers pressed closely together on each temple, clench your molars a few times to feel the part of the muscle you want to target. Along with the pressure, a little massaging will help.

Behind the ears: Using both thumbs, locate the points at the base of the skull, just behind the bones in back of the ears, and apply rotational pressure for two minutes.

Between the eyes: Pinch the bridge of your nose with your middle finger and thumb and slowly push upward so you feel pressure near your eyebrows.

On the hands: Using your right thumb and index finger, firmly pinch the soft fleshy web between the thumb and index finger of your left hand. Switch hands.
