How to Do the Trimukha Mudra for Headhaches:
With your palms facing each other, join the tips of your middle, ring and little fingers.
Sit in a comfortable seated position. Lengthen your spine, relax your shoulders and breathe naturally. Hold the mudra in front of your belly for 5-45 minutes. This mudra reduces headaches.
