Mahasirs Yoga Mudra for Headaches

I woke up in the middle of the night not long ago with a headache.  Ouch!  It was piercing me right between the eyes.  This is unusual for me and I was hurting and unhappy about it.

Well,  I was snuggled under the covers and didn’t want to get up.  Luckily, I thought of the yoga mudra for headaches.  In no time at all, my head quit hurting and I was back sleeping once again.  Since I didn’t look at the clock (that’s too depressing in the middle of the night), I woke up once more with a headache so I repeated the yoga mudra and it worked just as fast.  The next morning I woke up feeling rested and no more headache.
