Try my Tylenol Stretches or Anti-Headache Stretches. These work as quickly as a pain reliever, and can also be used to prevent headaches. I was recording another video and felt the beginnings of a headache, so I thought, “Why not just make a video for everyone?” My headache was gone by the time I’d reviewed the video.
Key points to remember:
- My neck is very flexible, don’t try to go as far as I do. Only go as far as you are comfortable – to when you feel a good stretch. If you can only tilt a few degrees that’s fine. Just go to where you feel the stretch.
- Only hold the stretches for 2-3 seconds.
- Repeat each stretch 15-20 times.
I use these any time I have a headache. I perform them – it usually takes 3-7 minutes – and my headache is gone within 15 to 20 minutes. And, if I do them at night, before I go to bed, I wake up without a headache!
