How to Use Reflexology for Migraines




For migraines with a known physical cause, treat the spine, concentrating on the neck area at the top of the spine, to release tension. Working these reflex points can bring relief from migraine pain, even if you are unsure of what caused your headache.
  1. 1
    Support your right foot with your left hand.

  2. 2
    Use your right thumb to work over the tops of your first 3 toes, starting with your big toe. If your migraine is acute and this area of your toe is extra sensitive, use only a very light pressure. Press and massage your 3 toes for at least 5 minutes.
  3. 3
    Repeat this process on your left foot, using your left thumb to work the first 3 toes.
  4. 4
    Use your thumbs or your knuckles to press all the reflex points at the base of your toes, both on the soles and tops of your feet. Your toes contain all the reflex points for your brain, sinuses, neck and head.

Liver Reflex Point on Your Right Foot

Migraines are often related to your digestion, so improving your liver function is paramount. Your health and vitality is determined by the health and vitality of your liver. And if you have subjected your liver to a lifetime of toxic chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, fats, drugs, food additives and alcohol, you can start repairing the damage to your liver at the same time you are treating your migraine headache.
  1. 1
    Support the top of your right foot with your left hand and use your right thumb to treat your liver reflex, which is located just underneath your lung reflex.
  2. 2
    Use your thumb to inch across the entire area, from the inside of your foot to the outside.
  3. 3
    Work your way back again in the opposite direction. Your liver is on the right side of your body, so you only need work on your right foot.

Cervical Spine Reflex Points on Your Feet

Your spine reflex runs along the inside edge of each foot, the curves of which mirror those of the spine itself. The cervical vertebrae reflex points are at the top of each foot along the side of your big toe.
  1. 1
    Begin with the reflex point for your cervical spine, where the toe joins the foot. Hold and press this reflex for several minutes.
  2. 2
    Continue pressing on the reflex points for the other divisions of your vertebrae (thoracic, lumbar, sacral and coccyx).
  3. 3
    Repeat the process on your left foot.

Neck, Brain and Spine Reflex Points on Your Hands

Treat the brain and cervical spine reflexes for stress-related migraines.
  1. 1
    Rub your hands together briskly to warm them up and make them more flexible.
  2. 2
    Refer to a hand reflexology chart about the location of your neck, brain and spine reflex points.
  3. 3
    Start with your brain reflex point by using your right thumb to press on the tip of your left thumb. Hold a steady pressure there for one minute and then release.
  4. 4
    Continue using your thumb to apply pressure to all the spine reflexes, continuing from the tip of your thumb along the outer edge of your thumb, all the way down to your wrist.
  5. 5
    Press and squeeze each fingertip of your other four fingers—these are the brain reflexes.
  6. 6
    Squeeze each finger from the base to the fingernail. All of the reflex points for your eyes, ears and sinuses are on your fingers.
  7. 7
    Repeat the process on your right hand.

Liver Reflex on Your Right Hand

Work your liver reflex for migraines linked to food allergies.
  1. 1
    Find the liver reflex on your hand. On your palm, it is about 1" below the base of your fingers on the left side of your right hand.
  2. 2
    Press and massage your liver reflex with your left thumb. Work the area for several minutes.
  3. 3
    Turn your hand over and locate the liver reflex on the top of your hand. It is in the same location as on the palm—it extends from the web of your index finger to the web of your pinky about 1" below the base of your fingers. Work this area for another several minutes.
