How can I relieve a migraine without medicines?

How can I relieve a migraine without medicines?
I get slight migraines when my body is under stress. Like when I’m working too hard, my sinuses are acting up, I’m worrying too much. What are things I can do to make my head feel better? It feels like there’s a ring around my head and someone is pushing down on it. I took migraine medicine years ago, but I’m seeking new solutions.

There are losts of good answers, but the best answer:

This sounds more like a tension headache than a migraine… usually improved by massaging back of neck to ease tight muscles, and maybe using some of that “4-Head” stick available from chemists, not medicine but aromatherapy I think.
Hope you find your solution

    It does sound like a Tension Headache. I get these all the time. Sometimes a heat pack will help. If that doesn’t do it try a ice pack-20 on and 20 off. I’ve never found a medication that worked for me. Relaxation techniques will also help a lot.

    This is definetly a tension headache. The best quick fix is to rub your temples and the base of your neck in a circular motion.
