Migraines run in my husbands family. His sister is on government assistance due to her severe migraine problems. We purchased a book on acupressure and every time my husband was starting to come down with a migraine, we applied the techniques and it seems the more you do it the less migraines he gets. Now I just massage his feet and any sore spots on his feet a little extra and he rests and he's good to go. But he has them rarely now. My sister also came over one day. Her headache was so bad she was throwing up. I did the same thing for her and she noticed an instant improvement and starting sharing the message. I'm glad we have a forum on this effective procedure. It's a very important part of a healthy lifestyle IMO.
