One Weird (and Easy) Technique That Can Banish Headaches FAST!

Do you get headaches frequently?

Are you on the computer a lot?

Even if you don’t have a desk job, chances are you’re on your phone a significant portion of every day.

Well, maybe everyone else is…not YOU right? 😛

Are you experiencing eye strain?

According to a 2015 report from The Vision Council, about 61 percent of Americans have experienced eye strain after prolonged use of electronic devices — that’s nearly 2 out of every 3 people!

And…even if you’re not on your phone a lot, there are some other surprising ways you can strain your eyes that have nothing to do with a digital screen. In fact, that’s how I stumbled across this one weird technique that can instantly get rid of a headache (if the cause is eye strain, or tight fascia in and around your eyeball).

In the video you’ll hear my story of a 4 hour harrowing winter mountain drive that had me fixated on the road, how this led to a raging headache and then…

I’m going to show you how to release your eyeball fascia in today’s episode! So get ready for some seriously awkward moments. Feel free to laugh at me, and then I hope you laugh at yourself as you try this!

Even if you don’t get headaches, your eyes are probably getting strained on a regular basis. I mean…no matter your age, career, hobbies or where you live in the world, chances are you’re peering intently at that tiny cell phone screen at least 2 hours a day. Your eyeball and surrounding fascia may be overworked and restricted, even without the presence of headaches.

You may just experience a feeling of spaciousness in your noggin and eyes that you haven’t had in a while.

What we’re targeting:

We’re targeting the fascia of the tiny muscles in the eyelids, eyebrows, eyeball and specifically the fascia behind your eyeball (the fascia bulbi, pictured to the left).

This technique might seem really weird, but if you think about it…we have a LOT of tiny muscles all around the eyeball! And every muscle in the body contains layers of fascia. Not to mention, every nerve ending in the body is coated in a piece of fascia and the optic nerve is no different!

The lateral and medial rectus muscles lay on the eyeball laterally and medially, and the suspensory ligament (fascia) holds the eye’s lens in place!

ALL this fascia, like any fascia in the body, can get tight and restricted. What happens to restricted fascia? It can most certainly cause pain. It also restricts blood flow! Our eyes need blood as much as any other part of the body, and if the fascia in and around our eyes is really tight…it won’t flow in as freely.

Eliminate Neck Pain! Best Release EVER for Stiff Necks, TMJ Pain & Tension Headaches

Say goodbye to neck pain!

This is one of the very few self-help techniques I’ve come up with that can perfectly mimic what I do in my private practice, and that means you should get an INSTANT and very powerful result (if you do it correctly).

Before I go any further, however…

WARNING: DO THIS FIRST!

If if you have significant neck pain of any kind, I highly encourage you to use my pec and deltoid release BEFORE attempting this technique.

The majority of neck pain does not originate in the neck, it is usually in your chest and (front) shoulders. If you try to release your neck first you might make things worse. The reason is, often times our neck is getting “tight” because it is fighting the constant pull of our forward rotated shoulders; it’s engaged in an unwinnable battle to pull our necks back where they are supposed to be.

If this is the case and you release your neck WITHOUT releasing the chest FIRST, then you’ve just created a scenario in which your neck will be FAR more likely to be pulled forward from the chest tightness that is still present, the very thing the neck is attempting to counteract by pulling back and tightening up. Your neck may react by clamping down even harder after a few hours, which is not what we want!

For the BEST result no matter what your situation or goal: combine the pec and deltoid release with this one and your head will feel like it’s floating!

This technique can relieve or eliminate:

  • Neck pain of ALL kinds
  • Tension headaches and migraines (if tension related)
  • Jaw and TMJ pain
  • Grip issues related to a nerve blockage in the neck
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and/or nerve pain shooting down the arm
  • Brachial Plexus issues
  • “Text neck” or pain associated with looking down for hours every day
  • Whiplash
  • Neck pain associated with forward rotated shoulders and
  • forward head posture
  • and…I’ve even been told by 3 clients that they believe this technique (in my office, not the lacrosse ball version) improved their EYESIGHT! I’m not sure I can substantiate that claim, BUT…the area you’re releasing with this technique does block or open a blood pathway to the ocular nerve…so ya never know!
