Some headaches are caused by digestive disturbances, such as overeating or constipation. One of the most well-known acupoints, Large Intestine 4 (LI-4), can help stimulate the digestive system to enable the body to get rid of toxins that are causing the headache.
You can use this treatment several times a day, until the headache eases.
Massage this point in small circles for one to two minutes.
Also beneficial for diarrhea, constipation, rashes, tooth pain and facial tension.
