    It’s important to know what kind of headache you have, because the treatment differs,  Willow bark is effective for regular headaches, while magnesium is a good treatment for migraines.  Feverfew and acerola cherries are good for all kinds of headaches.  Massages may or may not be effective.

    Pauleen is correct to say that the treatment for headaches depend on the cause. Massage is very good if you have a tension headache. Tension headaches are caused by sore neck and shoulder muscles. These muscles extend upward along the temples and the sides of the skull.

    If you have a headache between your eyebrows, you might need glasses or have a sensitivity to light.

    If you have a sinus headache, your face will ache, especially to either side of your nose and beneath your eyebrows. For a sinus headache, steaming your face with eucalyptus and peppermint essential oil is very helpful. You can also soak a washcloth in water with two or three drops of eucalyptus oil in it, and lay the cloth over your forehead. Don’t get the water in your eyes, though, because it will burn.

    There are other causes for headaches too, so be sure to figure out what type it is to find the most effective treatment.

    You could try meditating with deep breathing as a relaxation exercise for your headache. Just take a deep breath, exhale and repeat a few times in order to collect yourself. As Pauleen and Mercurycommunications stated, it does depend on the type of headache, such as stress. A simple technique for stress and headaches with lasting effects is meditating, releasing your mind and body from worries, and through clearing it of all thought you might just see your headache fade away naturally (:

    Pauleen makes a valid point that the remedy may depend on the type of headache you have. However, there are natural ways to help with most types of headaches. You can try taking a warm bath or shower, rub your temples (WebMD says to: “Apply gentle, steady rotating pressure to the painful area of your head with your index finger and/or thumb. Maintain pressure for seven to 15 seconds, then release. Repeat as needed.” http://www.webmd.com/migraines-headaches/guide/treating-headaches-yourself. Then, there are herbal remedies as well. Drinking a cup of chamomile tea is supposed to relieve headaches. Ginger not only helps relieve headaches but can prevent them as well.
