Many people believe pressure points in various parts of the body can be “released” to help relax and give relief to an area including headaches, muscle tension, and even stress and anxiety. This video has some you can try.

Most of the time these pressure points are sensitive to the touch, but you really want to put pressure through the areas to help get them to release the stress in that particular area or a referred area.

There are a many pressure points throughout the body, but the ones that are easiest to get to and give you the most relief, are at the clavicle, two places on the hands, at your temples, and at your scapula where the levator scapulae attaches. These pressure points can relieve stress, headaches, muscles tension, and sometimes even anxiety.
