“Pay attention. Pay attention to the points I’m pressing. I need you to do this for me when I’m
done. Are you hearing me?”
“Yeah, yeah, yeah.” He could hear her, nagging at him, while his head fucking exploded. Like
drilling holes in the back of his neck with her fingers was going to . . .
The pain eased from hot, stabbing knives to a dull misery.
And when she took his hand, pressing,
pressing on the web between his thumb and forefinger,
the misery downshifted to annoying ache.

Experiencing the pain and discomfort of a headache is incredibly common. If you’re looking for a more natural way to treat your headache, you may want to think about acupressure and pressure points.
Pressure points are parts of the body believed to be extra sensitive, able to stimulate relief in the body. Practitioners of reflexology, a discipline of Chinese medicine, believe that touching pressure points in a certain way can:
- improve your health
- ease pain
- restore balance in the body
