Got a headache?  Take two tennis balls and call us in the morning.  For an aspirin-free remedy for pain that targets the back of your head, stuff the tennis balls in a sweat sock (preferably a clean one) and tie the end of the sock tightly so the balls won’t move.  Now lie on your back on the floor and place the socked balls right under the spot where your skull meets your neck.  Lie there for a while,  this kind of direct pressure on the nerves at the base of the neck may numb them, relieving pain. – Jeffrey Csatari
