Headache and migraine
To remove such pains, focus on fingernails only. Focus on the index finger and the tissue between thumb and index.
Sinuses pressure and pains
Turn the palm to yourself and the thumb to the finger pad where the opposite side is next to the cuticle. For 3 minutes tops squeeze the tip of the fingers firmly. Then massage that spot and do it with all the fingers.
Neck pain and tension

Massage thumb until it gets warm. The meridians in the belly and spleen are linked to this and rect to it. Also, apply pressure in the palm center.
Warm up the thumb with massage. Apply pressure and do it on the meaty soft finger tissue. Then apply pressure on the thumb, the tissue close to the nail.
With just a bit of pressure, massage the whole palm and then put pressure on the middle finger, right under the nail.
Menstruation aches and belly pain
Massage the hand/palm and press the index finger where the nail is the closest to the thumb; then apply pressure on the small finger where the nail goes toward outer side.
Before you do this, warm up the hands and massage them for a minute to increase energy and sensitivity. Press with opposite thumb for 1-5 minutes and do it 5 times tops daily.
For gentle areas do it for 5 seconds. When you apply the pressure, massage clockwise 5 times then rest. Move around the tissue not just skin surface. Again press firm and take a break do it for 5 times tops.
