RealSimple.com: The Best Headache Remedies

1 of 7

Relaxation Techniques

Best for: Soothing stress before a headache starts.

How they work: Simple deep breathing and stretching (neck and shoulder rolls, in particular) relax tense muscles that trigger headaches, says Sheena Aurora, M.D., the director of the Swedish Headache Center, in Seattle. A pulse-point balm with aromatherapeutic ingredients, like peppermint, can help, too. Try Bath by Bettijo Relief Organic Stick ($18.50, bathbybettijo.com ). Roll it onto your temples and the back of your neck.

Keep in mind: Stretching also improves poor posture, another possible cause of headaches.
