Headaches can have a variety of causes. While the physical root of the problem is lack of blood flow to the brain, reasons can be hormonal, stress related, caused by poor posture, low blood sugar, food allergies, caffeine withdrawal, drugs, and more.
For a tension headache, place heat around the neck, such as with a heated neck wrap. Try placing feet in cold water to increase blood flow to the brain. Plus, a scalp massage can be helpful. Essential oils like lavender or chamomile can be calming, and peppermint can open breathing.
