A tension-type headache can be really bothersome. It is often caused by stress, anxiety, depression, unbalanced activities, and poor diet. Composing 90% of primary headaches (headaches that are not caused by another disease), tension-type headaches are what most of us suffer. So when you feel that heavy weight on your head at work, perhaps around lunch time when the day is slow and the sun is at its hottest, it's most probably a tension-type headache.
To prevent this unfavorable scenario, a more holistic approach must be adopted to stop having to suffer those troublesome and painful tension-type headaches. This can be done through relaxation techniques, proper diet, and psychological counseling if the underlying causes of the headaches are anxiety and depression.
When relaxation and proper diet are the things that are needed, Yoga is greatly effective in curbing those anvil-heads.Yoga Poses and Meditation can release the mind and body from the clutter and confusion of scattered thoughts and unbalanced activities that cause tension-type headaches.
The following are the Yoga Poses recommended for people who experience Tension-Type Headaches.

Happiness is in the mind, and the mind is supported by the body – a healthy mind lives in a healthy body. Your happiness depends on your mind and it depends on your body. Without physical health you can't be completely happy, and without mental happiness you can't be completely healthy. Health is a positive state; not just the absence of a negative one. It's not only the absence of disease. For too long now traditional Western medicine has treated illness as only a disease: an enemy that attacks you and needs to be counter-attacked; but in reality it's nothing more than an imbalance in the natural harmony of body and mind. True healing means restoring that balance, and true health means keeping it.
Yoga means "to unify." It's the holistic approach to all aspects of life: physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga views the person as a whole; as a unique combination of body, mind and soul, and its techniques maintain that body-mind-soul harmony.
In the ebook Yoga Health Secrets we'll look into all the techniques for attaining and maintaining that body-mind-soul harmony for true health and happiness:
Physical health, relaxation
Stamina, vitality, zest for life
Clarity, concentration, memory
Self-confidence and awareness
Love for all
Inner peace and happiness
