Cure Headaches without the use of medicine

A headache is almost never located in the brain infact there is not much ability at all to sense pain in the mass of the brain. Surgeaons for instance do not use anaesthetics on the brain when they perform brain surgery.
Headaches are almost always located in the muscles of the head which is caused by tension that has built up over a period of time in these muscles. You Can perform a simple self-test by pressing with your fingers on certain locations on the head.
The two most common physical locations of headaches are located at the places where the jaw-muscles are attached, right behind the jaw beloew the ears and at the temples.

The cures:

Be observant and try not to let your rows of teeth meet each other any other time than when you are chewing something. There's no need to go around with your mouth wide open, it's easily achieveable to keep your lips closed without letting the teeth meet each other but a small ventilation hole makes things easier.
Open your mouth wide and rotate your jaw from time to time. Snapping, crackling and clicking sounds from the jaw are uasually nothing to worry about, it might even hurt some in the beginning, but that will stop in time.
Drop your shoulders and make rotating movements with them.
Are you always raising your eyebrows? you should try and prevent from doing this as it puts unnecessary strain on the muscles in your head which cause tension and therefore headaches.
Tip your head slowly to each side and stretch out the muscles in your neck.
To massage the aching spots only works temporarily, try to understand where the pain is located and this way you can try to relax this area in order to relieve the pain more permanently.
Exercise. The human body needs physical work. Nothing is better against physical tension than exercising.
Drink enought water but not too much. Headaches are also often a result of dehydration, but also the opposite, drinking too much water can dilute the nutrient fluids in the body causing abstinence of sorts.
