Summary (prepared by human):

Now I'm going to show you a couple of techniques for how to relieve headaches in people. Headaches can occur in a couple of different places, so we're going to show you all of those. One of the first places that they can happen is right here at the base of the skull. I'm going to go ahead and cup her head in my hands and find this ridge at the base of her skull called the occiput. Your fingers will pretty much sink in there and, you can just get a nice pull back. Of course you're going to want to check in with your client and make sure that they feel comfortable. This is a nice way to relieve that area. You can also move forward just a little bit. You'll find that there's a couple of little bumps there in front of that ridge. You can do some circular motions on those, or apply deep pressure to that area, and that feels really great as well. So, this is for people who get headaches that are rooted from the back of the head. Sometimes they'll wrap around to the side and/or they'll be in the front here in the temples.
