Who Knew?!?

I've had a killer headache for quite awhile (hence the no posting!). I'd go to bed with a headache, wake up with a headache...no medicine worked! It was the kind that hurt to blink or hold my head up...and don't get me started on how the boys effected it! Let's just say I've been down for the count this week.

I saw this treatment yesterday and I figured why not give it a shot!

Its called the Hoku Point for accupressure. If you're pregnant--sorry, Don't Do It! What you do is make kind of a fist the your right hand. On the left hand in the webbing between your thumb and first finger, is a bundle of muscle. With your right hand, grasp that bundle (thumb on top, side of the middle knuckle pushing up from the bottom...kind of like you were doing the "thumbs up" sign and laid your left hand on top of your fingers, then just bring your thumb down on your left hand). Confused? Go ahead and try it, I'll wait...



If you have a headache, it should be tender there...or so it says...mine was so so...the headache definitely overshadowed the pain in my hand! Just apply pressure, rub it a bit and relax. Then open your eyes and think "what the heck---this actually worked!"

I promise that I'll post some real posts with pictures soon!

You're going to have to show me in person how this works. I'm not getting it but would love to know how to do it.
