Scalp Massage

I have migraine with aura.

My doctor told me that migraine pain occurs between the scalp and the skull.

At the first hint of attack, which is a funny feeling in my eyes prior to aura, I start massaging the scalp, feeling it move back and forth across the scalp.

I do this from up and down from the base of my neck and side-to-side for at least five minutes.

As a result, my headaches are 50% less intense and last half as long as before.
