If you experience severe headaches, fatigue, irregular heartbeat, and chest pain, you probably suffer from hypertension or high blood pressure. This condition can be caused by stress, lack of sleep, obesity, or other underlying diseases and sometimes even healthy people suffer from it. Luckily, there are some simple techniques that can help you relax your blood vessels and muscles to help keep your blood pressure under control.
Viral Inspiral gathered 8 effective ways to reduce blood pressure quickly without using any medication.
8. Massage your ears and neck.
There are 3 spots on your head and neck that can help you lower your blood pressure within a couple of minutes:
Find the first point behind your earlobe and draw an imaginary straight line down to the center of your collarbone where you will find the second point. Using your fingers, gently massage your neck with soft movements up and down this line. Repeat 10 times on both sides of your neck.
The third point lies on your face at earlobe height about 1/2 cm from your ear. Massage it on each side with your fingertips for about a minute in a counter-clockwise circular movement.
Massaging these areas will relieve the tension in your neck muscles and restore proper blood flow to your brain.
