No. You have to work at it.

This probably isn't what happens, but look at your shoulder then arm then hands. Try to feel blood going to these extremities. Relaxing doesn't enter into this technique. It can be exhausting but once you get it to work, you'll always try it. Damned headaches are worse than a little sweat. The thing is: Most of the time it will take time for this to work. It may take 15 minutes of this silly-sounding thing, but every now and then it will kill the thing cold and very quickly. You have to keep at it until you are very sure it has passed. You cannot let up even though it seems it isn't working. This worked for me in some fashion, 4 of 5 times.

Please: Someone on the board do this so I don't sound so odd.
