One of the many symptoms of stress is having a headache. This can be related to muscle tension in the neck and shoulders. Fatigue can also play a role. For some, stress even triggers migraines.

Studies have shown that there is a relationship between the intensity of stress and the frequency of headaches. The more often you suffer from it, the more your body has to deal with stress. Researchers estimate that up to 80% of our population suffers from headaches caused by stress. Some more/more intense than others.

Anyway, nothing more annoying than having a headache, especially if you have to stare at the computer screen all day long. There are a number of ways to ease headaches or even make them go away.


Drinking water

We often don’t drink enough on a busy day. While with stress we actually need more fluids. Try drinking two big glasses of water before trying any of the tips below.


Water with magnesium

Magnesium relaxes. If you dissolve 7 tablets of Schüssler salts in hot water, you can drink this best sip by sip. The hotter, the better.


Warm cloth on your neck

If you feel that the headache is related to tension in your neck, place a warm cloth on your neck. The heat is good for relaxing your neck and shoulders.



Even a brisk walk of fifteen minutes releases endorphins in the body. Endorphins are a natural pain reliever. This recipe also works great for other aches and pains.


Coffee with lemon

Something that helps but doesn’t taste good is coffee with lemon juice. It tastes so bad that some people even vomit after drinking it. The effect is really unsurpassed. This is one of the best remedies, especially for severe headaches.


Peppermint oil

Peppermint oil helps relax the muscles. You can put it either on your temples or on your neck. Sometimes even the scent helps to relax. Apply the oil for this next to your nose. Peppermint oil is available at the drugstore.


Stress points

You can also try massaging the two stress points. Those are the areas at the transition between the neck and the back of your head, where the two dents are. This relaxes the tension of the neck and head and can relieve headaches.



If you know how to use EFT or tapping, it’s definitely worth doing. Use different phrases for this so that you can see which will help you the most. Drinking water after each round is especially important with headaches.
The tap instructions will soon be available on my website.


Aspirin with caffeine

Not the best way to deal with a headache, especially not in the long run. But if it doesn’t work out, just take a pill. If it contains caffeine, it helps to widen and relax the blood vessels.



If you have recurring headaches, some Regenesis treatments can also do wonders. Regenesis helps the spine to get back into position and also gives space between the vertebrae. This releases long-term tension. Massages also ensure that muscles relax.



See if you can benefit from one of the above tips the next time you have a headache. I hope so!
