Question: “I have been experiencing these headaches that feel like some has a hold of the back of my head with pressure – they are primarily rooted it seems from my left side area – while I have the headache that area is very very tender from behind my ear down around the base and up some. Any ideas?….”
A headache like you are describing is always tension-induced, so Tei-fu and other aromatic oils on the neck and shoulders will help; deep breathing, magnesium complex and lots of water will relax and lubricate the muscles, too. If that doesn’t resolve them, consider seeing a chiropractor. The tenderness could be from your atlas being out, as could the headaches themselves.
